Goodell on Vick

Commissioner Roger Goodell said the NFL is “still gathering the facts” about a shooting outside a restaurant hosting a party thrown for Eagles quarterback Michael Vick’s 30th birthday last Thursday in Virginia Beach, Va., according to a Fox Sports report.

The shooting victim, Quanis Phillips, was a co-defendant in the dogfighting case that caused Vick’s 1 1/2-year incarceration and 34-game NFL suspension. Phillips was hospitalized Thursday night and discharged Friday.

Goodell confirmed what police told the Daily News on Friday, that Vick “is not a focus” of the ongoing investigation. However, he might have violated the terms of his probation and NFL reinstatement if he is found to be associating with Phillips.

Said Goodell: “Obviously, we’ve got to look and see whether there was any violation of policy.”
