Michael Vick injury update news has the Philadelphia Eagles' quarterback missing the Week 6 game. This Vick injury took place against the New York Giants last Sunday (Oct. 6) and it is still bothering him. According to a report from Saturday (Oct. 12), Nick Foles will get the start and rookie Matt Barkley will serve as the backup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday (Oct. 13).
This is really bad news for fantasy football owners that had been hoping Vick could put up some good numbers in Week 6. Instead, he becomes a liability once again, taking up a roster slot and not performing the way that some analysts had predicted. On the other hand, the Eagles haven't played too badly this season, posting a 2-3 record that has the team tied for first place in the NFC East.
Despite starting Foles, this is an extremely important game for the Eagles to win. The team doesn't want to fall off the pace in the division, so it has almost become a must-win situation against the Buccaneers. With this Michael Vick injury taking place to his hamstring, the team is going to need a big game from LeSean McCoy. He will need to help make up for the 60+ yards per game that Vick has averaged on the ground.
