Injuring your hamstring is never good. Hearing a pop in it? That’s even worse, which is why the concern regarding Michael Vick‘s ‘newest’ injury is worrisome.
Vick, who Sunday against the New York Giants looked like a shell of his former self, completely immobile. The talented quarterback said prior to the game that he was around ‘eighty percent’ though he looked nothing like that, essentially being regulated to a pocket quarterback.
The lone time Vick did run, he ended up hurting himself as he came up hobbling and made his way towards the Eagles’ bench.
After being checked out by the training staff, Vick was seen whipping a towel over his head, clearly frustrated as he sat out the remainder of the game. The team said it was a precautionary move, though Vick, who has been dealing with a hamstring injury for weeks now said he felt a ‘pop’:
“I felt good going in. I felt like I did everything that I was supposed to do to reassure myself that I could go out and play,” Vick said in comments distributed by the team. “But there’s just nothing like actually 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.”
An MRI has been scheduled for Monday morning.
