    UPDATE: News came out Monday afternoon that Vick's hand wasn't broken but that his status for the San Francisco game remained uncertain.

    It looks like the Eagles will have Vince Young or Mike Kafka under center the next few weeks.

    Eagles insider Howard Eskin reports that Michael Vick would miss at least three to four weeks with a broken right hand, he reported on Football Night in Philly.

    Vick was hurt after being thrown to the ground late in the third quarter of the Eagles 29-16 loss to the Giants Sunday. X-rays showed a fracture in Vick’s non-throwing hand.

    Even though the team has yet to even get Vick an MRI, Eskin says they already know to prepare for some games with their Pro Bowl QB.

    One of Vick’s targets WR Riley Cooper left Sunday’s game with a concussion. Cooper will be out at least one week and possibly tow, Eskin reports.

    As for Eagles No. 1 (he has more receptions and yards than DeSean Jackson so far this season) Jeremy Maclin, he has a strained hamstring. There is a good possibility that Maclin could play next week, team sources tell Eskin.
