Michael Vick Injury: Eagles QB Is Out For Week 12 Against Patriots, According To Report

Philadelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick will miss his second consecutive game this Sunday after suffering broken ribs in a loss to the Arizona Cardinals, according to Comcast Philly.

According to their team source, Vince Young will make his second straight start at quarterback for the Eagles.

Vick threw on Tuesday and said on Thursday he was improving, but coach Andy Reid has already told Young that he will start, according to the report.

Young guided the Eagles to victory last week against the New York Giants and will face stiff competition this weekend as well.

When the season began, this was expected to be a showdown between two of the league's best teams, possibly even a Super Bowl preview. However, due to injuries and poor play, the Eagles sputter into the game with a 4-6 record and need to win-out in order to have a chance at the playoffs.
