Philadelphia Eagles' quarterback Michael Vick suffered yet another injury, and had to again be replaced by back-up Nick Foles. On Sunday, Oct. 6, 2013, Vick left the game in the second quarter due to a hamstring injury and did not return for the second half versus the New York Giants, according to SI.com.
After running with the ball, Vick immediately grabbed his hamstring but stayed on the field for the remainder of the drive. Once the drive was over, Vick came off of the field and stayed out of the game for the remainder.
Nick Foles came in and performed extremely well in Vick's place. The back-up threw two fourth quarter touchdowns to secure Philadelphia's 36-21 win. Still, even with his great play on Sunday, Eagles' coach Chip Kelly said that Vick will remain the team's starter if he is healthy enough to play.
But Foles eventually moving in as the starter is not out of the question.
"We're always going to compete and make sure the best guys are on the field," Kelly said.
Vick will have an MRI done on Monday to determine the severity of the injury. Both Vick and the Eagles hope that he will be healthy enough to play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. If not, Foles will be at the ready and step in as the starting quarterback.
