Eagles QB Vick Out; Nick Foles In

Rookie Nick Foles, who replaced Vick during the 38-23 loss to Dallas on Sunday, and who practiced with the first team all week, will get his first NFL start in a battle of 3-6 teams fighting to save their seasons.
Philadelphia head trainer Rick Burkholder made the announcement Friday at the team’s practice facility, confirming a decision that had been in the works since Monday. It was only because Vick had not completed the league-mandated concussion testing earlier in the week, that coach Andy Reid did not officially rule him out until the team’s final practice.
Foles was 22 of 32 for 219 yards with a touchdown and an interception vs. the Cowboys. Those numbers weren’t enough to help the Eagles avoid their fifth straight loss, a first in Reid’s 14 seasons.
