Vick tweaks same leg he broke last year

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick tweaked
his right hamstring and pulled up limping after running into the
end zone during a drill Thursday in a practice against the
Tennessee Titans.

Vick made a sharp cut off his left leg and faked out Titans
cornerback Samari Rolle on his way into the end zone. He grimaced
and clutched his right leg as he started limping toward the huddle.

That was the same leg in which he broke his fibula last
preseason, keeping him out of 11 regular-season games. He lay on
the ground, and trainers immediately worked to stretch his
hamstring muscle.

Vick said he was OK.

"It don't hurt. I'm fine," Vick said.

The Falcons are scheduled for two practices with the Titans on
Friday, with a scrimmage Saturday. Vick said he doesn't expect to
miss any work.

"It shouldn't be a problem," Vick said.

Atlanta coach Jim Mora said he didn't run to check on Vick and
that he isn't going to baby his No. 1 quarterback.

"He's like everyone else out here. He's going to get nicked up
a little bit. He's going to have some pains and some pulls and he's
going to get through them," Mora said.

"Every time something
happens to the guy, we're not going to rush over to him and go,
'Oh!' That's not football. He's OK. He's fine."
