Vick leaves game with broken hand

Michael Vick was knocked out of the game with a broken hand. The team did not immediately specify which hand was broken, but earlier had said he was getting X-rays on his right hand.

He returned for one series after the X-rays, but then went to the bench for the rest of the game and was replaced by Mike Kafka, who promptly threw an interception. We'll have more as we get it from the team.

Jeremy Maclin also left the game with a hamstring injury and Riley Cooper left with a concussion. Guard Evan Mathis left the field as well, but the team did not have an immediate injury update.

FROM EARLIER:

Mike Vick briefly left the Eagles sideline late in the third quarter to get X-rays on his right hand, the team said, but was back without missing an offensive play.

The Eagles were leading 16-14 at the time. Vick had just led the team on a drive for a field goal, and had tried to score on a quarterback sneak a few plays earlier. Mike Kafka went into the huddle after an Eagles punt, but Vick returned and took his place before the snap.
