Is Mike Vick Injury Prone?
Began The Sportsbash today with the question of whether or not Eagles QB Mike Vick is injury prone or not. He's played in two preseason games thus far and he's come away with two injuries. His time in Atlanta, Vick missed serious time with a broken leg, but other than that he played in 14, 15 and 16 games every season. Others will say it's the reckless way that he plays sometimes makes him prone to injuries. Mike and Todd discuss:
Joe DeRosa With the Injury Report
Thursdays at 2:45 we check in with Joe DeRosa, Eastern Shore Physical Therapy with the various injuries around sports. As you can expect much of the talk was about the rib injury to Eagles QB Mike Vick. DeRosa did define what being "injury prone" actually means and if sitting him out for the remainder of the preseason is a good thing.

What to Watch For With Eagles/Browns
The Eagles will play their third preseason game tomorrow night in Cleveland against the Browns, catch that game on 97.3 ESPN FM. Our Eagles Insider Ryan Messick says that the starters will play about a quarter, with QB Nick Foles probably playing the full first half. A battle to keep an eye on is 3CB with Joselio Hanson battling rookie Brandon Boykin. Messick sees Hanson keeping the job, but Boykin is stating his case especially with his play on Special Teams. Plus, Messick handicaps the LT battle of Demetress Bell vs. King Dunlap:
