Eagles | Nick Foles to start
Wed, 30 Oct 2013 09:22:21 -0700
The Philadelphia Eagles have named QB Nick Foles (concussion) as the starting quarterback in Week 9 against the Oakland Raiders. QB Matt Barkley will serve as the backup. QB Michael Vick (hamstring) will not practice this week and won't be available Sunday, Nov. 3. "One of the good things about practicing on Tuesday is you can get your eyes on people who have been out. Nick did a really good job and Nick will be our starting quarterback this week," head coach Chip Kelly said. Kelly also said he'll make a determination on the quarterback position on a weekly basis moving forward.
Foles makes for a low-end QB1 this weekend mainly as a bye week filler or if you own Vick. The QB situation in Philly will likely come down to who is the healthiest over the next few weeks. Foles should see at least a few more starts with Vick out.
