Falcons' Vick to rest tweaked hamstring

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (Aug. 1, 2006) -- Michael Vick left the Atlanta Falcons' practice with a tweaked hamstring in the night session, but coach Jim Mora doesn't expect the three-time Pro Bowl quarterback to miss more than two days.

Vick needed no assistance as he walked off the field after pulling up during a team drill with 45 minutes remaining in the two-hour session. On his way to the locker room, Vick indicated his right leg was a little sore, but he insisted, "It's no big deal."

Matt Schaub, Vick's primary backup since the start of 2004, took the remaining snaps with the No. 1 offense.

Earlier in practice, Pro Bowl cornerback DeAngelo Hall left the field with a slight hamstring injury, but he later returned to watch the rest of the workout. Hall might practice in the afternoon Aug. 2.
