If it appeared that Michael Vick wasn't 100 percent healthy against the Dolphins, the Eagles quarterback hasn't dispelled the notion.
Despite the Eagles' 26-10 win, Vick, who missed the previous three games with broken ribs, struggled against Miami. He wasn't the only one on offense to be off his game, but Vick completed only 15 of 30 passes and was intercepted once.
"I'm getting better," Vick told philadelphiaeagles.com on Tuesday. "It's been tough the last three or four weeks. Last week didn't make it any better. I'm just trying to stay alive. I'm just trying to be accountable to my teammates."
Vick, who was sacked four times and took a number of other hits, said that he wore a protective vest against the Dolphins. He said it helped some, but only time will stop the pain.
"If you break your ribs, and it hurts, it takes a while to recover," Vick said. "I think with any injury there's nothing that can protect it other than it being all the way healed. I just got to get it all the way healed."
Vick owners should keep this in mind when they're setting their lineups this week. Not only is Vick still bothered by the rib injury, but he faces the Jets, who have given up the 2nd-fewest Adjusted FP to QBs this season.
