Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid said after the Week 2 game Sunday, Sept. 18, that QB Michael Vick (concussion) suffered a concussion in the second half. It isn't automatic that Vick will miss the Week 3 game against the New York Giants, although he will need to be medically cleared. Reid would not speculate on a potential replacement, but he noted QB Vince Young (hamstring) is getting close after being inactive in the first two games. QB Mike Kafka replaced Vick Sunday.
Fantasy Tip: Stay tuned here for updates on Vick's Week 3 status, but prepare for the decent possibility of him missing action. Kafka moved the ball well on occasion in Week 2, but neither he nor Young would be a promising fantasy play for Week 3, even against a somewhat vulnerable New York Giants D. A Vick absence hurts the potential of DeSean Jackson, who might be slowed further by a forearm injury.

There's also the possibility that the Eagles won't be able to deal Kolb.
