It appears that there is a chance that Michael Vick might make one more start for the Philadelphia Eagles this season. Rookie QB Nick Foles suffered a hairline fracture in his hand during Sunday’s loss to the Washington Redskins. He sustained the injury to his hand near the end of the first-half and Eagles head coach Andy Reid told the media this afternoon that Foles will not start in the team’s season finale.
There are expected to be some wholesale changes for the Eagles this offseason with Reid along with Michael Vick expected to be somewhere else next season.
Reid told reporters Monday morning that it looks as if Vick will be the starting quarterback this week. “There’s a pretty good chance that Mike will be the starter. That’s what I’m looking at right now. That’s the direction I’m going in as we speak right now, ” Reid stated.
Vick was replaced by Foles after suffering what was termed, a “serious concussion” earlier this season and was not expected to make another start for the Eagles this year. Vick struggled with turnovers before suffering his injuries and will have one last opportunity this week against the New York Giants to audition for a new team in 2013.
Foles has struggled a bit in the starting role with the Eagles, but he has also started the majority of his games without DeSean Jackson or LeSean McCoy in the lineup. If Vick does not get the starting nod, Trent Edwards would likely start, but he has seen no action this season.
