Many criticize the sometimes reckless play of Philadelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick. He likes to break off runs out of the pocket and he admits he doesnâ€™t know how to slide. This leaves many fearful that heâ€™s going to get hurt.
Well, he got beat up pretty good in Atlanta Sunday night, but it wasnâ€™t because he was being reckless. He got ripped apart in the pocket, was splitting blood everywhere and ended up with a mild concussion. He didnâ€™t return to the game.
On Monday, Eagles trainer Rick Burkholder said that Vick was â€śjust a little bit offâ€ťin his concussion tests, which is a good sign. He also said not to rush to judgement as far as his availability for Sundayâ€™s game against the New York Giants. There is a chance he could play.
Weâ€™ll see. One would have to think that Mike Kafka would get the nod Sunday after his fine performance on Sunday night in the loss to the Falcons.
