Michael Vick injury: Eagles QB leaves late during loss to Chiefs

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Although he injured his ankles, Vick reportedly would have been able to return to the game if time hadn't expired.

Michael Vick reportedly rolled both ankles at the end of the Philadelphia Eagles' loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday night, but would have been able to return to the game if time allowed, according to NFL.com. Vick was sacked near his own end zone with just over a minute left in the fourth quarter and got up limping towards the sideline. Nick Foles appeared ready to enter the game, but video replay showed that Vick lost a fumble on the play.

Vick had a rocky outing before leaving. The fumble was his third turnover of the game after he threw two first-half interceptions. His first interception was a pick-six to safety Eric Berry to give the Chiefs a 10-0 lead just under five minutes into the game. Vick finished the game 13-for-30 passing for 201 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. He was much more effective in the ground game, where he had five carries for 95 yards.

There is no word yet on the extent of Vick's injury. In a post-game interview, Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said that Vick came up to him and congratulated him, and that Vick appeared to be  OK. Vick was a regular fixture on the Eagles' injury reports last season. He appeared in just 10 of the Eagles' 16 regular season games.
