Eagles QB Vick leaves in 3rd quarter
Atlanta, GA – Michael Vick, starting a game in Atlanta for the first time since he wore a Falcons uniform, was knocked out of Sunday night's game in the third quarter.
The Philadelphia Eagles quarterback was hit by Falcons safety William Moore and fell into teammate Todd Herremans, his helmet striking the lineman and his body bending awkwardly back.
Vick labored to the sideline, where he sat for a moment before walking off the field.
Because normal backup Vince Young is out with a hamstring injury he suffered in the preseason, third-string QB Mike Kafka took over under center for the Eagles.
