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.
