Young injures hamstring; Eagles top Jets

Sep 2, 2011 - 5:01 AM East Rutherford, NJ (Sports Network) - The Eagles closed out the preseason with a 24-14 victory over the Jets on Thursday night, but also watched Vince Young hobble off the field with a right hamstring strain.

Michael Vick's backup was scrambling on the right side in the final minutes of the second quarter when he pulled up limp and threw an incomplete pass.

Young, who was untouched on the play, hobbled to the sideline and was worked on by trainers, who targeted the quarterback's right leg.

He got up, walking under his own power, and appeared to reach down and grab the back of Vick's right knee as if to show his teammate where he was hurt.

Eagles head coach Andy Reid said it was a strain and that Young would have an MRI Friday morning.

"We'll just see how it goes here," said Reid. "I know he's not feeling very well right now, but we'll just see how it goes."

Young remained out -- Philadelphia didn't run another offensive play in the half -- and was 15-for-23 for 193 yards. He threw a 16-yard touchdown pass to Chad Hall in the first quarter.

Third-stringer Mike Kafka played the second half and threw for 76 yards and an interception on 7-of-11 passing. He suffered a rib contusion.

"I think Mike will be fine," said Reid. "We just have to see with that. Mike was able to get back in and throw the ball around a little bit."

Dion Lewis rushed 15 times for 62 yards, including a one-yard touchdown, and ran the opening kickoff back 40 yards for the Eagles. Graig Cooper also ran for a one-yard score in the win.

With Mark Sanchez sitting out, Greg McElroy started for the Jets and was just 3-for-6 for 29 yards. Drew Willy went 9-of-17 for 109 yards and threw a 14- yard TD pass to Scotty McKnight.

Ellis Lankster intercepted Kafka in the fourth quarter and returned it 67 yards for a touchdown.

Rookie Eagles kicker Alex Henery booted a 49-yard field goal, but also missed a 43-yarder.

Young signed a one-year contract to play behind Vick, who sat out the final preseason game Thursday along with most of the starters for both teams.
