Vick breaks non-throwing hand, rips into refs wire reports

PHILADELPHIA -- Michael Vick has a broken right hand, and it's uncertain when the Philadelphia Eagles star quarterback will return.

Vick left Sunday's 29-16 loss to the New York Giants after getting hurt late in the third quarter. He started despite suffering a concussion in last Sunday's loss at Atlanta.

"I don't know anything right now except my hand is broken," Vick said when asked if he could play against San Francisco next week.

Coach Andy Reid said Vick would have a CT scan Monday.

Vick wasn't happy with the play that he got hurt on. He completed a 23-yard pass to Jeremy Maclin before taking a hard shot from Chris Canty.

"I felt I got hit late. No flag," Vick said. "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."

It appeared on replays that Canty hit Vick in the facemask with his helmet. Vick sat on the ground, lifted his helmet off slightly before getting helped up by a teammate and an official.

"Every time I throw the ball, I'm on the ground," Vick said. "I get hit in the head. I don't know why I don't get the 15-yard flag like everybody else does. I'm not trying to blame the refs. I just want them to take notice."

Vick was temporarily replaced by Mike Kafka after heading to the locker room for X-rays on his right hand early in the fourth quarter. But Vick returned during a time-out and Kafka left the huddle.

Vick played one more series before being replaced by Kafka.
