The end of Michael Vick in Philly? Nick Foles named starter for rest of season

Nick Foles has been named the starting quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles for the rest of the season. Foles has started three games this season after Michael Vick suffered a concussion during the Eagles/Dallas game on Nov.11.

Eagles coach Andy Reid announced the decision to put Foles in as starter for the rest of the season during a press conference on Monday and that Vick remains at Phase 4 of his post-concussion testing as of Monday morning.

The Eagles organization wants to see what Foles can do. He showed serious progress on Sunday night against the Dallas Cowboys, even in a loss. Reid spoke with Vick, who he said was “on board” with the decision.

Vick is due $15.5 million next year and will likely be cut during the off season.
