A frustrated Michael Vick comments on the hard hits he has been taking after breaking his hand against the New York Giants.
One week after suffering a concussion in a rough-and-tumble loss to the Falcons, Eagles quarterback Michael Vick broke his right hand on what he considered a late hit in Philadelphia’s 29-16 loss to the rival New York Giants.
The hit in question happened in the third quarter when Giants defensive tackle Chris Canty delivered a hard shot on Vick after the quarterback completed a 23-yard pass to Jeremy Maclin.
“I was trying to protect myself,” Vick said in his postgame news conference. “Still didn’t get a flag and that’s pretty much been the story for the last three weeks. I mean, obviously at some point something catastrophic is going to happen and I broke my hand.”
