Philadelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick’s Hand Bruised Not Broken

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid said a CT scan Monday revealed their star quarterback Michael Vick has a bruised hand, contradicting earlier reports that the non-throwing hand was broken.

“Today, he had a scan and it showed there was no break,” Reid said. “It was a blood vessel sitting above the bone. That happens at times with X-rays. The blood vessel makes it look like it was a fracture. There is still a bunch of swelling. It is sensitive to the touch. The positive is there is not a fracture there.”

It’s unclear if Vick will play when the 1-2 Eagles host the 2-1 San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.

Vick hurt the hand when he was hit by Chris Canty after completing a 23-yard pass to Jeremy Maclin in the third quarter. He finished off the series and led the Eagles to the go-ahead field goal.

He eventually left the game for good; Mike Kafka replaced him and threw two interceptions.
