Michael Vick will be wearing a new Kevlar flak jacket Week 1.
For what it's worth, the maker of the flak jacket, Unequal Technologies, has guaranteed Vick won't sustain any more rib injuries. This version is lighter and covers more of the torso than previous versions Vick has tried. "It's going to be custom fitted and fitted to protect all across my sternum, across my ribs. I think it'll be a better fit," he said. Vick broke two ribs in Week 10 last season and then sustained a rib contusion in the second preseason game this year.
