Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick could miss at least three to four weeks with a broken right hand suffered in Sunday's 29-16 loss to the New York Giants, WCAU-TV reported Monday.

Howard Eskin, the sideline reporter for the Eagles' radio broadcast, didn't cite any sources in his report that the team already is preparing to face the San Francisco 49ers, Buffalo Bills and Washington Redskins with either Vince Young or Mike Kafka under center.

It's not yet known what, if any, testing Vick has undergone because of the injury. Eagles coach Andy Reid said after the game that Vick would have a CT scan Monday, while WCAU-TV reported Monday morning the quarterback had yet to have an MRI exam.

The Eagles' bye week comes after their next three games.

Vick hurt his right, non-throwing hand when he was hit after completing a pass during the third quarter. He blasted officials after the game, saying he wants to see more late-hit penalties called in his favor.

WCAU-TV also reported that Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper, who left Sunday's game with a concussion, will be out at least one week and possibly two.
