That's the kind of day it was for several NFL quarterbacks, most notably Michael Vick, who broke his right hand, and Mark Sanchez, who might have done the same to his nose.
Adding more pain Sunday, both lost.
So did Sam Bradford, who was sacked five times, and Matt Ryan, who went down four times.
Vick started for Philadelphia despite suffering a concussion in last week's loss at Atlanta. He left the 29-16 defeat at the hands of the New York Giants with the broken hand in the fourth quarter after helping the Eagles overcome a 14-0 first-quarter deficit to take a 16-14 lead.
It's uncertain how long Vick will be out.
Vick not only was hurting, he was annoyed that no flag was thrown on the hit by defensive lineman Chris Canty. It appeared Canty hit Vick in the facemask with his helmet. Vick sat on the ground, lifted his helmet off slightly before getting helped up by a teammate and an official.
"Every time I throw the ball, I'm on the ground," Vick said. "I get hit in the head. I don't know why I don't get the 15-yard flag like everybody else does. I'm not trying to blame the refs. I just want them to take notice."
