Eagles quarterback Michael Vick sustains hamstring injury against Giants

Shutdown Corner

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick has struggled to stay on the field throughout his NFL career, and he may have had another setback.

Vick sustained a hamstring injury in the first half during a run against the New York Giants on Sunday. He continued playing after grabbing his hamstring, but was eventually replaced by backup Nick Foles, who completed 7-of-8 passes for 68 yards before halftime. The Eagles eventually won the game, 36-21, to keep the Giants winless. Foles finished 16 of 25 for 197 passing yards and two touchdowns.

If Vick has to miss any games because of this injury, his tenure in Philadelphia might be nearing the end.

Vick is an unrestricted free agent after this season, and even though he has expressed a desire to remain in Philadelphia, the Eagles can move forward with Foles. Considering Vick’s long history of injuries, this hamstring setback will not help him during negotiations with Philadelphia - or any other team - in the offseason.
