Oct. 22 (Bloomberg) -- Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick said he’s not sure he’ll be healthy enough to start against the New York Giants this weekend.
“I wish I could give you a definitive answer, but I can’t right now,” Vick told reporters today, the team said on its website.
Vick has missed the Eagles’ last two games after injuring his hamstring in a 36-21 win at the Giants on Oct. 6. His replacement, Nick Foles, suffered a concussion in the Eagles’ 17-3 home loss to the Dallas Cowboys two days ago. Foles was replaced at the end of the third quarter by Matt Barkley, who threw interceptions in each of his three fourth-quarter possessions.
The Eagles fell to 3-4 with the loss, while the Giants beat the Minnesota Vikings 23-7 last night, their first win of the season.
The Eagles and the Giants meet at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia on Oct. 27.
