Well.. that didn’t take long, Michael Vick‘s first injury of the season. I’m still pulling for the guy to keep things turned around, but its hard to QB with his style and avoid getting clobbered. Vick may or may not play this week, but should not be out any longer than a week or two. Unfortunately… his obvious backup Vince Young may or may not play this week as well. Mike Kafka (who???) is next in line if Vick does not start. I am sure Kafka is a bright QB and he showed promise at Northwestern, but do you really want to go with a guy that only started for one year at Northwestern?
Personally, I’d look beyond Philadelphia if I thought I needed a replacement. Right now, Ryan Fitzpatrick would be a hard option to beat if he is still available in your league. He has been raining touchdowns so far this season. He also gets New England this week — yeah remember that defense that made Chad Henne look like a stud — and Cincinnati next week. Rex Grossman is another possibility, though I loath recommending Grossman as a fantasy option.
