Indianapolis—November 7, 2010—The Philadelphia Eagles are now 5-3 after their big win over the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. Michael Vick was back in the game after missing three consecutive games due to a rib injury he sustained on October 3rd of this year. Before his injury, Vick was playing at his career best with six touchdown passes and no interceptions thrown in this 2010 season. Vick picked up where he left off in last Sunday’s matchup between the Eagles and the Colts, thanks in part to his custom-fitting protective gear.
As seen on CNBC last week (http://www.cnbc.com/id/15840232play=1&video=1630688766 (video), http://www.cnbc.com/id/39950568 (article)), Michael Vick returned to the field wearing EvoShield - the latest in athletic protective gear. Once EvoShield’s soft pads are ripped out of the foil package, they harden in about 10 minutes, transforming into protective Shields. Though Vick was wearing EvoShield’s protective rib Shields when he was injured in October, the injury was sustained high up on the chest where he was unprotected. EvoShield stepped in and added custom chest shields to his current rib protection in order to ensure safety against any further injury. The new gear served Vick well, as he completed 19 out of 27 passes for a touchdown and a total of 218 yards to come out ahead of Colt’s Peyton Manning.
