OK, Now how can our trainers and doctor's for the NFL that supposedly have all this fancy dancy equipment at all the stadiums not know if a bone is broke. THIS JUST BAFFLES ME...
YAHOO SPORTS ANNOUNCES:
Eagles coach Andy Reid said a CT scan Monday showed the star quarterback bruised his hand in Philadelphia’s 29-16 loss to the New York Giants on Sunday. Reid said X-rays taken during the game showed Vick may have a fracture.
“Today, he had a scan and it showed there was no break,” Reid said. “It was a blood vessel sitting above the bone. That happens at times with X-rays. The blood vessel makes it look like it was a fracture. There is still a bunch of swelling. It is sensitive to the touch. The positive is there is not a fracture there.”
It’s uncertain if Vick, who throws left-handed, will play when the Eagles (1-2) host the San Francisco 49ers (2-1) next Sunday.
“We will see how he does over the next couple of days,” Reid said. “We have to get the swelling where it is manageable and he feels comfortable.”
Vick was injured on a hit from Chris Canty(notes) after completing a 23-yard pass to Jeremy Maclin(notes) in the third quarter. He finished off the series and led the Eagles to a go-ahead field goal.
Vick left for X-rays, but returned without missing a play. He then left the game for good after another series.
The hit from Canty didn’t sit well with Vick. He blasted officials for not calling a roughing-the-passer penalty, and said he wants to be treated like other quarterbacks.
“His best interest is always in my mind, when he’s on the football field, in particular,” Reid said. “I know he’s a marked man. I think it’s important that we all keep a close eye on him.”
