Michael Vick leaves game in 2nd quarter, Matt Barkley takes over at QB

Michael Vick exited Sunday's game against the Giants in the second quarter because of a hamstring injury. It's unclear whether he re-injured the hamstring that limited him throughout the week, or whether he was ineffective because of the hamstring injury that kept him out two games.

Michael Vick exited Sunday's game against the Giants in the second quarter because of a hamstring injury. It's unclear whether he re-injured the hamstring that limited him throughout the week, or whether he was ineffective because of the hamstring injury that kept him out two games.

Matt Barkley entered the game for Vick. Barkley went 6-of-7 for 55 yards in the first half, but he sacked the ball in the red zone to thwart a scoring drive.

Vick struggled in the game, never appearing fully healthy. He finished 6-of-9 for 31 yards one interception and one fumble that he recovered. He scrambed once for one yards, and never appeared to have the burst or acceleration he's known to have. 

Tight end James Casey is the team's emergency quarterback. Nick Foles is inactive iwth a concussion.
