Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick is dealing with a hamstring injury, and according to Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer, head coach Chip Kelly said that the second injury is in the same spot as the first injury. Vick said that he heard his hamstring "pop" in the same way as before.
This means that Vick came back too quickly from the first injury. He sustained the injury in Week 5, and missed two games before returning against the New York Giants on Sunday. Vick attempted nine passes, completing six of them for 30 yards, with an interception and no touchdowns before sustaining the second injury.
Rookie Matt Barkley took his place to finish out that game, a 15-7 loss to their NFC East rivals. Nick Foles will make the start going forward, however, as he has been cleared to play after sustaining a concussion.
Fantasy Impact: Vick hasn't been the top fantasy quarterback this season, but he's been effective. There's a chance he could miss even more than the two weeks he missed last time, meaning Foles would be the guy to go with for fantasy owners. Foles is actually a strong fantasy option going forward, for what it's worth.
