After a slow first quarter that saw Michael Vick complete zero passes, Vick and the Eagles offense started to get in a groove in the second quarter, before Vick came up lame after a first down run. Vick would finish the drive, which ended in one of Alex Henery’s four first-half fieldgoals, but left after just one play on the next drive.
Vick appeared to grab his left hamstring, so the assumption is that he strained or pulled his hamstring. Hopefully it was a cramp, but the injury lasted a little long to just be a cramp.
Vick was 6/14 with 105 passing yards and 79 rushing yards in the first half.
Nick Foles, who replaced Vick with just over one minute left in the first half, lead the Eagles all the way down the field from inside their own five yard line, to kick a field goal to take a 19-7 lead into halftime.
Foles went 7/8 on the drive, and while Kelly appeared to dumb down his offense for Foles, Foles hooked up with a DeSean Jackson on a fade pattern that was by no means an easy throw, to put the Eagles in position for another Henery field goal.
2:50 EST Update: After telling a FOX sideline reporter that his hamstring “really didn’t feel well”, and “he wasn’t sure if he was going to start the second half”, Michael Vick is on the sideline to start the second half, with Nick Foles still in the game.
ESPN’s John Clayton says that Vick’s return is questionable.
