Eagles head coach Andy Reid said in his Monday press conference that QB Michael Vick did not break his right (non-throwing) hand, instead he suffered a hand contusion.

Howard Eskin of NBC Philadelphia had reported Vick fractured the hand in Sunday's loss to the Giants and could miss 3-4 weeks.

Reid said the team saw a "potential fracture" on Sunday but it turned out not to be a fracture. There is still "lots of swelling there to eliminate."

Vick left Sunday's game after being hit in the third quarter by Giants DT Chris Canty. Second-year QB Mike Kafka replaced Vick, as Vince Young was active for the first time this season after suffering a hamstring injury in the preseason.

Reid said that he didn't think Young was 100 percent in Week Three.

Vick left the team's Week Two game with a concussion, but was cleared to start Week Three. He completed 16-of-23 passes for 176 yards and a pick before exiting. Kafka threw two interceptions in the 29-16 loss. The Eagles are 1-2.

Reid said that WR Jeremy Maclin's hamstring injury is day-to-day and that WR Riley Cooper has a concussion.

The way we see it

The "Dream Team" is struggling. Vick, who has played a full 16-game season once in his career, may be forced to miss time. The Eagles are confident in Kafka, although they may go with the experienced Young in Week Four.
