Michael Vick will get one final game to remind everyone why he can be starter in the NFL next Sunday when the Philadelphia Eagles take on the New York Giants.
Since last Sundays loss to the Washington Redskins, head coach Andy Reid has revealed that current starter and rookie quarterback Nick Foles played the second half with a broken hand.
Now the Philadelphia Eagles website reports that Nick Foles won’t start Sunday and Vick will likely get the nod.
Andy Reid had this to say about Foles injury:
“This was something that showed up on the MRI this morning, it wasn’t present on the X-ray.”
Michael Vick suffered a concussion in week 10 and, much like Alex Smith of the San Francisco 49ers, lost his job for the rest of the season to the back up.
Regarding his hand against the Redskins, Nick Foles had this to say:
“It didn’t affect my throwing at all.”
With any hopes of making the playoffs long since dead, the Eagles have decided to preserve the future and sit Foles for the final week.
When asked if Vick would start in place of Foles, Andy Reid told reporters:
“There’s a pretty good chance Michael will be the starter. That’s what we’re looking at right now. That’s the direction I’m going as we speak right now.”
While it can safely be assumed Vick will start, the Eagles could always turn to Trent Edwards to start against the Giants.
Edwards is a former top 10 draft pick out of Stanford and has veteran starting experience.
Here is a quick recap of the game.
What do you think? Should the Eagles start Vick at quarterback?
