This puts Vick's status for next week's early season showdown with the Giants as doubtful.
"He's OK right now," Reid said afterwards. "The doctors will take care of it from here." Mike Kafka played the remainder of the game in Vick's place. The Eagles fell to the Falcons, 35-31.
According to Brendan Prunty of the Star-Ledger, Vick was dazed after the collision:
"After that hit, you could tell there was a difference," Eagles center Jason Kelce said. "When he's on the ground and he stays down for a little bit, you know something is wrong."Vick will need to undergo mandatory concussion testing before he can be cleared to participate in football drills. In most cases, doctors request the player not return to the field for a minimum two weeks after suffering a concussion.
After he fired off a nine-yard completion to wide receiver Jeremy Maclin (who had 171 yards and two touchdowns on the night), he was spun around by a Falcons defender and slammed into his right tackle, Todd Herremans. Herremans stands 6-foot-6 and weighs almost 330 pounds.
"His head ricochetted when he hit him," Kelce said about the play. "It was the second hit (into Herremans) that really dazed him."
"He kind of looked out of it a little bit," said receiver DeSean Jackson, who had two catches for 21 yards. "But he's a tough quarterback, so we'll see how it goes."
