East Rutherford — In a bit of an ironic scenario, New York Jets football player Michael Vick was attacked by a pitbull as he left MetLife Stadium this Saturday.
The 34-year-old quarterback was leaving the stadium after visiting with his new team’s management, when a stray pitbull suddenly darted towards him. Onlookers say the dog gave chase as Vick attempted to use some of his classic juke moves to avoid it. Unswayed by Vick’s attempts to elude him, the dog locked onto his left thigh. The dog shook violently back and forth while locked on to Vick’s leg.
According to numerous bystanders, Vick let out high-pitched screams of agony as the dog continued to attack him. The dog was successfully pried from the veteran quarterbacks leg after an agonizing 10 minutes.
Michael Vick was treated at a nearby hospital, and received over 45 stitches. Vick will undergo an MRI on Monday to determine if there is any internal damage. It is unknown if the QB will be ready for training camp, which is set to begin in August.
