What bad news for the Falcons, I thought Vick would have an MVP season, now he's gonna miss at least 6 weeks.

from ESPN

Atlanta Falcons star Michael Vick fractured his right fibula Saturday night during an exhibition game against Baltimore.

An AP source, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Vick wouldn't have surgery. If he's out six weeks, he'll miss the first four games of the regular season, and would return Oct. 5 against Minnesota.

Philadelphia quarterback Donovan McNabb had a similar injury last year and was out two months.

Vick was chased out of the pocket on a third-down play late in the first quarter and was tackled by Adalius Thomas. Vick fell awkwardly on his right leg and grabbed it even before he hit the ground.

This is the worst news i have heard. I was going to enjoy watching Vick have a break through season again. With all those highlights. Looks like we are going to have to wait a while now.
