Eagles | Michael Vick's injury worse than believed

Philadelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick (hamstring) appears to be facing a lengthy absence, and he'll sit out for the second straight game in Week 7 against the Dallas Cowboys. "I want to get back out there, but I can't," Vick said. "I try to burst and run, I can't do it. Just hoping it's not a long time." The location of his pulled muscle, which is up high on his hamstring, is making it more difficult to heal quickly.

Fantasy Tip: Nick Foles took first-team repetitions again in practice Wednesday, and he'll start in Week 7. We all know Vick is injury-prone and a slow healer, so don't be surprised to see this drag out. Foles isn't a bad option to throw into your starting lineup in the meantime.
