Eagles head coach Andy Reid on QB Michael Vick: “hand contusion; not a break”

Eagles main man Andy Reid proclaimed that the sensational signal caller who wears #7 does not have a broken right hand.

On the contrary, Vick has a “contusion” on his non-throwing hand.

“Michael Vick has a hand contusion. Not a break. We had a few different shots taken of his hand yesterday during the game,” Reid said via Philly.com. “The early clips showed that there was no break. The ones that came back when he was on the field showed that there was a potential fracture there. Today he had a scan and it showed there was no break. It was a blood vessel sitting above the bone. That happens at times with X-rays. The blood vessel makes it look like it was a fracture.

“There is still a bunch of swelling. It is sensitive to the touch. The positive is there is not a fracture there.”

Vick’s availability for next Sunday’s home gathering against the 49ers will be decided over the next 48 hours.
