PHILADELPHIA - One day after another fourth-quarter collapse, Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid announced that quarterback Michael Vick has a couple broken ribs.

Reid said that Vick suffered the injury on Philadelphia's second offensive play of this past Sunday's game against Arizona after taking a hard hit.

The star quarterback played the rest of the game and there was no mention of the injury during or after the 21-17 loss. He completed just 16-of-34 passes for 128 yards and two interceptions as Philadelphia dropped to 3-6.

Reid said the bottom two ribs on Vick's left side are broken, putting his status for this weekend's game against the Giants in jeopardy.

"We'll see. I'll see in the next little bit. He's a tough nut," Reid said when asked if Vick will be ready for Sunday.

Vick missed three games last season with a rib injury.

In nine games this season, Vick has thrown for 2,193 yards, 11 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. He has also rushed for 535 yards.

In other injury news for the Eagles, wide receiver Jeremy Maclin suffered an AC sprain in his right shoulder and a strained hamstring. Cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie has a high ankle sprain and offensive lineman King Dunlap has a concussion.

Philadelphia blew a fourth-quarter lead for the fifth time this season on Sunday. Things don't get any easier for the Eagles, who play the 6-3 New York Giants on Sunday night.
