Vick To Return, Foles To Remain Starting Quarterback


Former Eagles starting quarterback Michael Vick has been cleared to resume full football activities and will dress next week when the Eagles host the Washington Redskins. But that doesn’t mean Vick will find himself back on the field as the Eagles look to bounce back from last night’s 34-13 romping at the hands of the Bengals.

Unsurprisingly, Reid told reporters after the game that rookie quarterback Nick Foles will remain the starter.

“I’m going to stick with Nick,” Reid said.

And frankly, there’s little reason not to stick with Foles. Despite posting only one win since taking over for Vick, Foles has shown glimpses of tools that could make a him the team’s quarteback of the future. Still, the rookie has struggled at times and whatever coach takes over in 2013 will want as much tape to evaluate as possible when assessing and projecting what the third-round pick out of Arizona could be moving forward.
