East Rutherford, NJ, United States (4E Sports) – Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick was pulled out late in the first half after suffering a hamstring injury against the New York Giants.
Vick was seen grabbing his left hamstring area after running around out of bounds. A limping Vick stayed in the game to complete a drive that resulted in a field goal for a 16-7 lead.
After that, Vick was worked on by medical personnel along the sideline as backup Nick Foles began to warm up.
Vick returned when the Eagles got the ball back deep in their own territory but he was chased to his left by Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul on the first play.
The quarterback then threw the ball away from his own end zone, but Pierre-Paul brought him down from behind.
Foles came in and moved the Eagles downfield for a field goal as time expired in the second quarter.
Vick remained on the sideline, walking slowly back and forth with a member of the Eagles’ training staff monitoring him. He was questionable to return in the game.
Before leaving, Vick had rushed seven times for 79 yards. He had completed just 6 of 14 passes for 105 yards, 66 on a single deep ball to DeSean Jackson.
Durability has been one of Vick’s issues in the past three seasons. He played in just 23 of 32 games in 2011 and 2012 due to a variety of injuries, including a concussion and damaged rib cartilage.
Vick has started all five games this season after beating Foles out for the starting job in training camp.
