Michael Vick Says He's Out 'Maybe a Week, Maybe Two Weeks'

Michael Vick told a Virginia Beach, Va., radio station Monday night that he's hoping to miss "maybe a week, maybe two weeks" from his rib cartilage injury.

"There is some cartilage damage up in there and a small fracture up in there, so maybe a week, maybe two weeks," he said, according to "I just have to work through it. I've always been a quick healer. It won't be no more than one, two weeks hopefully. Hopefully.

"I'm feeling good, despite the rib injury. I'm fighting through it. Overall, I'm feeling well."

He has already been ruled out of this week's Eagles game against the 49ers, according to ESPN.

Monday afternoon, Eagles head coach Andy Reid called Vick "day-to-day, week-to-week" at his press conference.

Reid noted that Vick was still sore from the hit he suffered when two Redskins converged on him during a 23-yard scramble in the first quarter that was called back due to a penalty. Vick didn't return to the game and Kevin Kolb took over as quarterback in the 17-12 loss.

"The most important thing is just rest," Vick told WXTG Radio. "There is really nothing you can do for a rib injury, especially in the upper part of your rib cage. I'll get rest, I've got a Hyperbaric machine and I'll be spending a lot of time in that trying to restore my blood cells. I'll stay in the treatment room, getting ice for it and just trying to get movement."
