    Michael Vick says he won't complain about the officials anymore.

    The star quarterback blasted officials after injuring his right hand in Philadelphia's 29-16 loss to the New York Giants on Sunday, saying he takes too many late hits without getting the benefit of roughing-the-passer penalties.

    “I was kind of out of character and being too candid in that aspect,” Vick said Monday. “Ultimately, I respect the referees and their decision to make calls, and you won't hear me complain about it no more.”

    Vick bruised his right hand -- the team initially said it was broken -- after taking a hard shot from Chris Canty in the third quarter. His status for next Sunday's game against San Francisco is uncertain.
