Eagles quarterback Michael Vick sustains hamstring injury against Giants

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

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 as 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.
