Baldinger On Toucher & Rich: Injuries In The Preseason

The Patriots played their second preseason game Monday night and fell to the Philadelphia Eagles 27-17.

Michael Vick left the game early in the first quarter and never returned after taking a hit to the ribcage by Jermaine Cunningham. X-rays on Vick’s ribs came back negative, but the team kept him out for the rest of the game.

Patriots safety Patrick Chung left in the first half due to a shoulder injury, but reports this morning say keeping him out was a precautionary move.

Former player and current analyst for the NFL Network, Brian Baldinger spoke with Toucher & Rich about the NFL preseason, injuries in the preseason, Michael Vick’s health and the amount of young quarterbacks starting this year.

As a former player and current analyst how does Baldinger feel about these four preseason games, the chance of injury and the quality of the game itself?

Would more full contact practices between two different teams be better, so that the threat of injury would be lower? Would the threat of injury really even be reduced?
