NFL: Vick leaves game with hamstring injury
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 threw an interception. He had little mobility and did not appear close to recovered. He missed the past two games.
“I’ve never had a hamstring injury this bad,” Vick said.
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.
Miami wide receiver Brandon Gibson and New England offensive tackle Sebastian Vollmer did not return after leg injuries in the first half of the Patriots’ 27-17 win. There was no update on either player.
Detroit defensive end Ziggy Ansah left the Lions’ win over Dallas with an injured left ankle. Lions wide receiver Ryan Broyles left with an Achilles tendon injury, and cornerback Bill Bentley was sidelined with a knee injury.
Dallas guard Brian Waters also left that game with a triceps injury, and cornerback Morris Claiborne and safety Barry Church went down with hamstring issues.
Cincinnati linebacker Rey Maualuga was taken off the field on a cart in the first half after hurting his left knee and apparently suffering a concussion while trying to make a tackle. Coach Marvin Lewis said Maualuga wasn’t seriously injured.
Jacksonville lineman Will Rackley left the Jaguars’ loss with a head injury.
