Eagles Quarterback Michael Vick played with 2 broken ribs in loss to Arizona

Michael Vickmade no excuses for an awful performance, taking the blame for missing open receivers and throwing poor passes. Perhaps two broken ribs had something to do with it. Vick broke his two lower ribs on the second play of the Eagles’ 21-17 loss to Arizona on Sunday. He didn’t tell anyone that he was hurt and played through the pain.

“He didn’t say anything, not a word. He’s a tough nut,” coach Andy Reid said Monday. “He said he really just blanked it out and played is kind of what he said, and really didn’t think twice about it.”

Vick’s status for the next game at the New York Giants (6-3) is uncertain. He missed three games last year with a rib cartilage injury. The defending NFC East champion Eagles (3-6) are going nowhere in a season that began with Super Bowl aspirations. They have now lost five games in which they led in the fourth quarter. For more information on Vick and Eagles check out the full article here.
