A recent tweet by NFL Network's Jason LaCanfora states Michael Vick's hand injury is not as serious as initially expected:

"Andy Reid reports Mike Vick has hand contusion, no fracture. Lots of swelling. Vick had more medical tests this morning."

LaCanfora added:

"Still a chance Vick plays this week. Will depend on how the hand heals, amount of lingering swelling, how Vick can grip snaps/handoffs."

This is phenomenal news for Eagles fans, although it is just another chapter in a growing document of Vick's health concerns. It's apparent that Vick's style of play will always put him in danger of injury, and a safe backup plan is needed.

Vince Young and Mike Kafka are waiting on the sideline in case such a catastrophe happens, but a team with Super Bowl aspirations needs more than just a safety net. They need a winner.

The question is, if Vick goes down, will they have one?
