Michael Vick’s return didn’t last long. Now it’s uncertain when he’ll be back.
The Philadelphia Eagles’ quarterback left the team’s 15-7 loss to the New York Giants on Sunday late in the second quarter with his ailing hamstring acting up.
Vick, making his first start since he injured his left hamstring on Oct. 6, was replaced by Matt Barkley. Vick was 6 of 9 for 31 yards and an interception. He had little mobility and did not appear close to recovered. He missed the past two games.
Vick, the NFL’s career QB rushing leader, tested the hamstring last week in practice and insisted he was ready to play.
“I felt good going in,” Vick said. “I felt like I did everything I was supposed to do to reassure myself I could go out and play. But there’s just nothing like being in the moment and having to move and having to react. When I did that, that’s when I pulled it again. “I felt the pop.”
It’s uncertain whom the Eagles will start next week at Oakland, with Nick Foles, Vick’s usual backup, inactive while recovering from a concussion.
Robert Griffin III left Washington’s 45-21 loss to Denver late in the game with an injured left knee.
The Redskins quarterback was slammed to the ground by the Broncos’ Terrance Knighton, and Griffin’s left leg appeared to buckle as Knighton fell on top of him. Griffin grabbed at the knee immediately, but was walking around on the sideline after Kirk Cousins took over for him.
Afterward, Griffin said it was fine.
