Reid: Vick Sustained A “Pretty Significant Concussion”BREAKING NEWS, Eagles, News, Quarterbacks Monday, November 12th, 2012
At his Monday news conference Eagles head coach Andy Reid said the concussion which Michael Vick suffered during yesterday’s Dallas game was a “pretty significant concussion”. He didn’t say that Vick was going to miss the upcoming Redskins game, but the quarterback will have to pass a number of tests and examination by a league-appointed neurologist before he steps back on the football field.
After the game Reid said Vick was “foggy” about what happened during the game. Right now the quarterback is resting at home. Birds heat trainer Rick Burkholder is keeping an eye on Vick via the telephone.
I have titled the Eagles Dallas game plan the “let’s get Michael Vick hurt” plan. How do you explain why the Birds are running sweeps out of empty backfields and quarterback draws up the middle?
This was bound to happen. I’ve never seen a quarterback take as much pounding as Vick has endured in half a season.
It looks like rookie quarterback Nick Foles will be getting his first start on Sunday against the Redskins. Reid said Foles will be taking the snaps at practice this week as the Birds number one quarterback, until and if Vick returns. The head coach made it a point to identify Vick as the team’s number one quarterback.
