Michael Vick suffers two broken ribs

The reeling Philadelphia Eagles could be without Michael Vick this week against the New York Giants as the quarterback suffered two ribs in Sunday’s loss to the Arizona Cardinals at Lincoln Financial Field.

Yes, when it rains, it pours on the Dream Team. Coach Andy Reid announced the news at his press conference today, according to the Philadelphia Daily News, and it raises the possibility Mike Kafka or Vince Young will start against the Giants.

“We’ll see,” Reid said when asked if Vick will be able to play this week. “I’ll see in the next little bit. He’s a tough nut.

“It probably had something to do with (his inaccuracy). He did some good things and I didn’t think it came down to him right there. He said he just kinda blanked it out and played. He didn’t think twice about it.”
