Michael Vick to undergo MRI on chest injury today

Michael Vick will have an MRI today to determine the extent of injuries he suffered in the Philadelphia Eagles' loss to the Washington Redskins on Sunday.

Comcast and ESPN's Chris Mortensen were reporting that Vick had at least one and possibly as many as three broken ribs after his jarring encounter with DeAngelo Hall and Kareem Moore, but Eagles Coach Andy Reid was mum on the matter immediately after the game. (Ashley Fox of philly.com writes that Reid usually tells reporters when a player has X-rays and they're negative; he did not do so Sunday, for what that's worth.) The NFL Network reported, however, that X-rays were negative.

Vick declined to speak to reporters after the game and his status for next week's game against San Francisco is uncertain at the moment.

"I talked to him at halftime and he said his sternum and collarbone were hurting," wide receiver DeSean Jackson said.

Vick's injury was the difference in the game.

So many great players out there who aren't felons. Glad Vick got some of what he deserves. Garcia has played well in the past for the Eagles, but then the Eagles just kicked him to the curb. The Eagles do that to so many good players. Why the Eagles support Vick I'll never understand.

Vick was the only chance Philadelphia had.

Once he was out of the game, the Redskins won -- even without much of a performance from McNabb.

So I get up to get another beer and while my head is in the fridge my two dogs run outside barking like crazy.

Thinking a friend stopped by, I go outside and hear ALL the neighborhood dogs barking.

I return to the game and find that the Eagles have a new QB in the game. Go figure.

I am praying for a very speedy recovery for Vick. Without him the Eagles are doomed!!!

Michael Vick should rethink his injuries and relate it back to the dog fights he supported. How do you think the dogs felt having their ribs inured..worse yet, their faces ripped off. Michael Vick should never have another opportunity to complain about injuries ever again. Ever.
