Michael Vick suffered broken ribs in Week 10 against the Cardinals. He appears unlikely to play this week, but his status for next week has not been decided.

Michael Vick suffered a couple of broken ribs on in the Eagles Week 10 loss to the Cardinals, an injury that could keep him out of the Eagles upcoming game against the Giants on Sunday night. His status for the game is still uncertain.

The Eagles starting quarterback did not practice on Wednesday, but head coach Andy Reid said Vick could still play on Sunday, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer's Jeff McLane.

Then there's this from ESPN's Adam Schefter via Twitter: "Michael Vick still has time to heal, but the early signs are that he is unlikely to play Sunday night vs. Giants due to two cracked ribs."

Despite all the uncertainty, Newark Star-Ledger's Mike Garafolo reports that Giants coach Tom Coughlin feels confident he won't see Vick on the field on Sunday. Via Twitter: "Coughlin won't believe Vick isn't playing 'until I see him not jogging out there.'"
