Below is a run-down of the injury situations that Shutdown Corner will be monitoring before Week 11: Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick exited Sunday’s 38-23 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in the second game with a concussion. Vick was replaced in the lineup by rookie Nick Foles, but Eagles head coach Andy Reid said that Vick would remain the starter, provided that he is healthy. Entering Sunday, Vick had not missed a snap this season. In addition to Vick, Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler sat out the second half of a 13-6 loss to the Houston Texans with a concussion. Cutler was hit by linebacker Tim Dobbins after delivering an illegal forward pass with just under three minutes remaining in the first half. Cutler remained in the game, scrambling for 11 yards on the following play. Cutler also took the snaps on the Bears’ final possession before the end of the half, totaling seven plays with a concussion. Bears first round defensive end Shea McClellin left Sunday night’s game in the first quarter, also with a concussion. San Francisco 49ers quarterback Alex Smith left Sunday’s 24-24 tie with the St. Louis Rams with a concussion. Smith took a hard shot from Rams linebacker Jo-Lonn Dunbar late in the first quarter, but remained in the game and completed five passes, including a touchdown pass to Michael Crabtree. Smith reportedly suffered the concussion while attempting a quarterback sneak on a 4th-and-1, but stayed in the game for six plays before completing the touchdown pass to Crabtree and giving way to 2011 second round pick Colin Kaepernick. “From what I’ve been told by the doctors and the trainers it seems like it was the quarterback sneak,” head coach Jim Harbaugh said after the game, according to Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area.
