Mike Vick injures hamstring in Steelers' win

Print

Mike Vick premature exit against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday didn't hurt the Pittsburgh Steelers' fortunes.

After throwing for just six yards over two-plus quarters, Vick left after suffering a right hamstring injury during the third quarter of the team's 25-13 victory.

Vick appeared to hurt himself on a scramble during what had been a disastrous afternoon for him under center. From there, third-string passer Landry Jones took the field to guide Pittsburgh on a four-play, 32-yard scoring march capped by his 8-yard touchdown strike to Martavis Bryant, which put the Steelers up 12-10 over the Cardinals. Jones finished connecting on 8 of 12 passes for 168 yards and two interceptions.

Landry's march was the first hint of offense for a Steelers attack that floundered under Vick and desperately misses Big Ben.
