Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Mike Vick has a small tear in his hamstring and could miss Week 7’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs, according to Aditi Kinkhabwala of NFL.com.

Vick will test the hamstring the next few days before determining whether he will be able to play on Sunday. In the game against Kansas City, Vick went three for eight passing for six yards.

Ben Roethlisbergerreturned to practice last week and could return from a sprained medial collateral ligament (MCL) and bone bruise sustained in Week 3.

Landry Jones is the third-string quarterback that would assume starting duties if Vick or Roethlisberger are unable to play. Jones went 8 for 12 passing for 168 yards and two touchdowns to lead the Steelers to victory over the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.

The Steelers are 2-1 since Roethlisberger's injury.
