Kelce Doesn't See Need To Adjust Snap

Quarterback Michael Vick made it clear on Wednesday that he intends to play Sunday against the 49ers despite the hand contusion suffered against the Giants.

One player impacted by Vick's injury could very well be center Jason Kelce, who has to snap Vick the ball on every play.

However, Kelce is confident that Vick's injured hand, the non-throwing hand, will be "good to go" and he won't have to adjust his routine.

"No, it won't come into my mind," Kelce said.

In Dallas on Monday night, there was evidence of the issues that can arise if the quarterback and the center are not on the same page. Cowboys center Phil Costa, a rookie free agent, botched a number of snaps to quarterback Tony Romo, which nearly cost them the game.

Kelce, a rookie sixth-round pick, has worked with an injured quarterback in the past, however. At Cincinnati, Kelce played with Tony Pike, who played through a broken (non-throwing) arm. Kelce pointed out that Pike suffered the injury, underwent surgery and returned to action only to re-break the arm.

But Kelce realized what he said and immediately noted that he doesn't plan on that happening to Vick this weekend.
