Michael Vick injury: Eagles QB replaced by Matt Barkley

John Geliebter-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles have turned to third-string quarterback Matt Barkley on Sunday.

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick was injured in the first half of Sunday's game against the New York Giants, and the team has turned to rookie Matt Barkley.

Vick attempted to run during the first quarter before leaving to the sideline and speaking with team doctors. He tried to stretch his leg on a stationary bike, but was unable to return. Sunday's game marked Vick's return from a hamstring injury that sidelined him for two weeks. There is no confirmation that his exit from the game is related to his prior injury.

Matt Barkley enters the game with both starter Nick Foles and now Vick out with injury. Barkley was selected in the fourth round of April's draft and played in one game this season. He had 129 yards passing and three interceptions this season without a touchdown. It's unclear whether Vick will be able to regain his job as a starter with the emergence of Foles this season paired with his injury.
