Report: Vick will miss 3-4 weeks with broken hand

The Giants didn't just beat the Eagles badly on Sunday. (Though they did do that.) They may have also put the Eagles "dream" season at risk, by breaking Michael Vick's right hand and sending him to the bench earlier than he expected.

As I said yesterday, the good news is that Vick's right hand is broken. But it may not matter that much -- Howard Eskin of WIP radio in Philadelphia reported Sunday night that Vick will miss at least three to four weeks because of the hand injury.

That timeline seems logical, but we won't know for sure until Vick undergoes a CT scan on Monday. If he does miss significant time, his ref-blaming quotes from Sunday will reverberate even louder this week.

"I felt I got hit late. No flag," Vick said Sunday. "At some point something catastrophic is gonna happen. Not to blame the refs, but more precautions should be taken. I'm on the ground all the time in the pocket."

Vick's been pressured an average of more than 10 times per game this season, but has received only one roughing the passer call this season.

Report: Vick will miss 3-4 weeks with broken hand

@Serph

Really? Get the calls? 60%70% of the time Vick is a runner first, passer second..why doesn't he call out his offensive line for not providing protection.  The more you move, the more likely you are going to get popped. I could not believe what he was saying after the game. Regardless of whether I am a Giants fan or not, there was no late hit on that particular play. The refs were not the greatest as they let that game get a little out of control with the scuffles.  But to sound like a whiny little, ?? That is not very sportsmanlike, now is it?

You don't hear JPP crying and ranting about the # of times he was held/tackled on his way to your precious QB, do ya? If they didn't hold, Vick would have been out of that game long before that with 1/2 dozen sacks on him on top of the hits he was taking. That offecnsive line is going to get any quarterback you put back there killed.

Maybe all the officials are reputable dog breeders and are sick to their stomach when looking at this "man".

GO G-MEN!!

The NFL set a precedent with the calls, so when they don't give Vick the same calls yes there is a very real problem.  I've noticed Mark Sanchez doesn't get the calls either.  Why?  And it has nothing to do with ability since I've seen the crappiest QBs like Alex Smith still get those calls.

Notice both the Eagles and Jets lost yesterday, to inferior opponents.  The question of whether games are fixed is definitely raised.  Jets players have said they knew there would be problems with the officiating crew.  It will probably take an FBI investigation like in the NBA to expose this, and then they'll go back to doing it, just like the NBA, until the fans leave.

It's nonsense like this that makes a sport like Tennis far more interesting at times, since they don't have as much bullshit from refs.

Three to four weeks now and Lord knows what other injuries he will endure later in the season.  Simple fact is that the NFL is a contact sport and players do get hit and end up on the ground.

Hey Mike, stop your complaints about the refs, seems like you are always ready to blame others for your misfortunes.

The worse case is now Vince might be your replacement, another outstanding & mature athlete.  Has the "dream team" turned into a nightmare??

there he goes complaining about late hits again. football like other sports most of the great players get calls. vick is far from a great player. not saying it is fair but eli did get hit a couple of times also and did not get the calls. so pipe down
