Michael Vick breaks his right hand
By Dan Graziano
PHILADELPHIA -- Star quarterback Michael Vick has left Sunday's game against the New York Giants in the fourth quarter with a broken right hand. The team officially announced him as "doubtful" to return with eight minutes left and the Eagles trailing the Giants 22-16.
Vick tried twice unsuccessfully to get into the end zone at the end of a second-half touchdown drive on quarterback sneaks, and shortly after the field goal that followed he left the field and went to the locker room for X-rays on his non-throwing hand. He returned to the field for the Eagles' next drive, but later in the fourth quarter he was replaced by backup Mike Kafka, who threw an interception on his first play of the game.
More on this as it develops, of course.
