Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick was injured and suffered a concussion during the team's Sunday night game, according to coach Andy Reid.
Vick suffered the concussion after the Falcons pressured the quarterback in the third quarter and he accidentally spun and crashed into Eagles offensive lineman Todd Herremans.
At the time Vick had thrown for two touchdowns and an interception, but was forced to leave the game and hand the offensive reins to third-string quarterback Mike Kafka.
I know Mike is upset about (not finishing), Kafka told reporters after the game. When you're hit like that, you can't do anything about it. It's out of his control.
Vick was seen spitting up blood after the collision before heading to the locker room for the duration of the game. NFL Network's Albert Breer reported on Monday that Vick will undergo an MRI and impact testing in the near future to evaluate his injury.
Eagles trainer Rick Burkholder told Breer that Vick was absolutely fine on the plane ride home, but ESPN's Sal Paolantonio reports that Vick was glassy eyed, disoriented, and walking quite slowly, after the team's 35-31 loss to the Falcons.
Paolantonio also reported that right now Kafka would the Eagles' starter against the Giants in Week 3.
Vick's injury was sustained after the Eagles tried to limit the potential for injury by keeping the quarterback in the pocket for the majority of the game. Vick is more known for his speed and elusiveness, but Reid and the rest of the coaching staff has pushed for him to stay in the pocket to avoid injuries like the ones he suffered last season.
But it was while Vick stayed in the pocket -- and not on the run -- that he suffered the concussion from a collision.
The Eagles haven't commented on Vick's status besides Burkholder saying that he hasn't ruled Vick out for Week 3 yet.
