Foles to Get Another Start at QB Monday Night

Nick Foles will make his second consecutive NFL start on Monday night with Michael Vick still recovering from a concussion.

All signs on Wednesday pointed to the rookie quarterback getting the nod once again. Foles took all the practice repetitions as Vick was sidelined once again and unable to partake in any strenuous activity.

Andy Reid said that Vick was still in Phase 1 in the league’s protocol for return from a concussion. The Eagles coach added that Vick was “getting close to Phase 2,” which would involve exercise challenges.

Vick is scheduled to undergo another ImPACT test sometime this week, Reid said. He had one on Monday but he remained below the baseline, according to the Eagles. Once Vick passes the test he will then be examined by team doctor Peter DeLuca and then an independent neurologist before he’s cleared to play.

After Wednesday’s practice, Foles was asked if he would feel more comfortable – if he did in fact start again – after struggling in his debut against the Redskins on Sunday.

“I hope a lot,” Foles said. “There is a lot to learn from that game: You can’t have turnovers, I missed some throws that you need to hit, accuracy, and just keeping the rhythm of the game.”
