Eagles coach Andy Reid said during his weekly Monday news conference that Vick suffered two broken lower ribs on the second play of Sunday's game. Vick played the entire game, with the exception of one play during the fourth quarter when he was replaced by Vince Young after taking a shot from Cardinals linebacker Paris Lennon.
"He didn't say anything, not a word. He's a tough nut," Reid said. "He said he really just blanked it out and played is kind of what he said, and really didn't think twice about it."
Vick struggled most of the game, completing 16 of 34 passes for 128 yards and two interceptions. Reid conceded the injury "probably had something to do with it."
Vick said he didn't think the injury affected his play Sunday.
"Maybe it was selfish to stay out there but it wasnât affecting me. Just compounding hits started to take a toll on me. Iâve got to start to realize maybe I canât do it all sometimes," Vick said, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer.
Vick told the paper the injury was very painful and he would take it "day by day" but sounded unsure if he could play against the Giants.
Reid added cornerback Dominique Rogers-Cromartie is "going to struggle" to return against the Giants. According to The Inquirer, Rogers-Cromartie said he also has torn ligaments in the ankle in addition to his high sprain.
Reid also confirmed offensive lineman King Dunlap suffered a concussion.
