Vince Young Injury: Eagles Backup QB Leaves Game With Leg Injury

After starting the Eagles' final preseason game, Vince Young was seen walking with trainers to the locker room after right hamstring injury just before the end of the first half.

Young pulled up lame on a bootleg with no one around him, prompting the Eagles' training staff to take action. Third-string quarterback Mike Kafka entered the game and will likely finish it out.

Kafka, for what it's worth, has far outperformed Young thus far in the preseason, but Young is a two-time Pro Bowl quarterback who can create with his legs and his arm, and well, is just an entertaining football player in every regard.

Though he won't return to this game, Young should be fine for Week 1, based on how he's reacting on the sideline:

Young is limping, but talking to Vick. Doesn't look too concerned.less than a minute ago via Twitter for iPhone Favorite Retweet Reply
