Michael Vick has a deep bone bruise in his right hand – his non-throwing hand – and, after the Eagles’ miserable home opener, that passed for good news.
The team on Sunday thought the hand was broken.
The bruise is still problematic, though, leaving Vick’s status for Sunday’s game against the 49ers in doubt. He has not been ruled out, though.
“It all remains to be seen. I’ve got to take it one day at a time and see how everything unfolds,” Vick said Monday. “It’s a little sore. It’s still swollen, but I think with rehab we’ll see how it recovers and how well it gets.”
COLTS: Peyton Manning is still on Indianapolis’ active roster and could return this season.

“I didn’t say Peyton out 4season FOR SURE,keeping him on ActiveRoster n taking it month by month/Outside chance of return n December possible,” Irsay wrote.
