Michael Vick Pulls Hamstring Muscle Again?

Quarterback Michael Vick said he felt his hamstring “pop” in the first quarter of the Philadelphia Eagles’ game against the New York Giants Sunday.

“I felt the same feeling that I had the first time ,” Vick said. “I don’t think it’s as bad, but it did pop again. … I’ve never had a hamstring injury this bad.” Vick first hurt the hamstring on Oct. 6.

Philadelphia Eagles rookie quarterback Matt Barkley took over for Vick, but had a tough time against the Giants, committing two turnovers in the Eagles’ 15-7 loss.

Vick originally hurt his hamstring against the Giants three weeks ago at New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium. The injury caused him to miss games against the Dallas Cowboys and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Second string quarterback Nick Foles replaced Vick, but was knocked out of the Dallas game with a concussion.

“Once Nick got hurt last week, I just made up my mind that I was going to try to get out there,” Vick said. “I was going to try to rehab as hard as I could all week and try to put myself in a position where I could get back behind the center and help our team win.”

Vick said he will get an MRI on the hamstring Monday.
