Vick says he'll be out 1-2 weeks

Eagles QB Michael Vick said on a radio show tonight that he should be out no longer than two weeks.

In comments captured by the Eagles official website, Vick talked to the The Game and The Bruce Smith Show on WXTG Radio 102.1, and he said, despite the rib injury, he’s feeling pretty good.

Said Vick: "There is some cartilage damage up in there and a small fracture up in there, so maybe a week, maybe two weeks. We'll have to see. I've got some cartilage damage up in there, in the upper area of my ribs. I just have to work through it. I've always been a quick healer. It won't be no more than one, two weeks hopefully. Hopefully.

More from Vick: "The most important thing is just rest. There is really nothing you can do for a rib injury, especially in the upper part of your rib cage. I'll get rest, I've got a Hyperbaric machine and I'll be spending a lot of time in that trying to restore my blood cells. I'll stay in the treatment room, getting ice for it and just trying to get movement."

After the pancake that was made out of him against the Redskins, 1-2 weeks out of action has to be considered very good news for Philadelphia fans.

The difference between Stollworth and Vick is that Stollworth manned up and admitted his error while Vick tried to lie and hang the crime on others.  Maybe that's why his "friends" ratted him out - he was trying to let them take his fall.  I am a believer that Vick did his time and should have the right to make a living, but don't compare his crime to Stollworth's.  That's a total cop out!  It's not that people value dogs more than humans - it's that people understand the dogs had no choice in the situation - they are totally dependent on the compassion of humans for their condition.  Stollworth should not be excused for his mistake and neither should Vick.  Vick compounded his mistake by lying about what he did - and that's proabably why the feds came down hard on them - you don't lie to the feds.

I also agree with the folks saying we all make mistakes.  Vick paid for his mistakes and is doing what he is capable of doing to right the wrong.  I give him credit for now taking responsibility.  But, I think even Vick would now admit that he handled this situation poorly from the beginning.  He's matured a great deal from the experience and become a better person.  I don't think society could ask for much more than that.  As for what he did to the dogs - you can't change the past and I'm sure Vick has to live with those images and that reality every day.

Let the man move on.

All of these comments have absolutely nothing to do with Vick's injury. Personally I dont care that the man got caught dog fighting. People all over the country do the same thing with dogs and cocks. The only reason he catches a bad rap is because he is one of the best players in the most popular sport in the most popular nation for sports. Im glad he will be back in a couple weeks and he is not injured for longer. And to everyone who still holds a grudge and is still judging him for his personal life, stop trying to push your morals on other people.

Intentionally infecting someone with herpes is about as bad as sexual assault.


Mike Vick (aka Ron Mexico) is guilty of that too.


Not to mention a thief.  Stealing money from the pensi0n fund of hard working people. 



I'd maybe belive he was sorry if he hadn't been busted with drugs while on bail or haning out with known fellons at his birthday party after getting out of jail.



But his actions after he was caught show he's still the same punk.

According to the , first time offenders for dog fighting DON'T get only probation like the BOBCI spokesperson stated. The average sentence for someone who gets caught taking part in fighting is 5 years and/or a $10,000 (sometimes more in certain states) fine.




But everyone says he was treated more harshly than others who do the same thing????

It does not matter if he was convicted or not. Most of you people [and I mean YOU PEOPLE] do not respect teh law and the judical system. OJ Simpson was found not guilty of murder and YOU PEOPLE still said he killed someone. Big Ben did rape thos women as much as you stil think OJ killed someone. In fact the woman are alive to say he did.

I do not care what you think or how you feel, you worthless peice of $hi+... crawl back to your trailor and finish @crewing your mama.

To all you worthless peices of $hi+heads who are posting here, hoping for MV's demise; scre@ all of you. MV did nothign to you or any of your worthless dogs. Perhaps MV should have raped two women and maybe your comments would be less stupid.

Why not go and find a site on Big Ben and post; oh, you won't, you racist peices of $hi+heads. What MV did wasn' bad. Heck, horses are raced til damn near death and then turned into glue. no one cares about horses. Most latins in basebal run cock fighting rings; nothing said there.

You all are $hi+heads; and need to be where most of MV's dogs are; and you kow what happened to those dogs...
