FOX's A/V crew has been screwing up all game long on their HD feed. I wouldn't read into no replay here.

I'm going to say that Vick just has a bruise right now. If he is down for any period of time I feel good about Schuab. He's not some undrafted FA scrub or 6th round pick like our old backups were.

It was a dirty follow through too. I think he broke that lower leg again.

He walked off the field dawg... Strain, pull, or bruise.

Vick's okay... He's walking it off on the sidelines and testing it out.

I just saw Vick mouth to George Stewart that he's ok. Vick's also jogging now.

Yeah I just always get super pessimistic when I see him get hurt. When the Ravens hurt him I said it wasn't a big deal, so I just do the opposite now due to my superstitions.

I personally didn't see much wrong with the hit. As far as the injury goes, I've read on NFL.com that is a MCL sprain. Not a major injury. It's one that guys often get in training camp, miss a few preseason games so they can rest it. But I suspect in the midst of the regular season, Vick won't miss any time, especially when I don't htink the team was trying to hard to ice it.

We'll get an update Monday and Wednesday, but I'd be surprised if he's not listed as Probable from the get go.

maybe they'll use it like they did his hammy. keep him out of practice and be very cryptic about it. you know, they'll say he's "probable" and it'll be a gametime decision and then he comes out on sunday and runs like a gazelle.

MRI

Postby MarylandFalcon1 » Mon Oct 03, 2005 12:18 pm

MRI results on the knee were negative monday morning. Mora tended to indicate Vick would sit out this week of practice but did not say he would miss the Pats game.

I almost don't even want him to play honestly. While I love watching Vick play, if he plays against the Pats he will be looking to run & it could spell doom for his season.

True

Postby MarylandFalcon1 » Mon Oct 03, 2005 3:12 pm

True, but if he doesn't play it always spells doom for our season. Schaub got 2 field goals in that game (as I am not giving him the Dunn run on the series where Vick went out and Dunn made all those awesome moves).
