Michael Vick Caught in Another Philadelphia Eagles QB Controversy


Philadelphia Eagles’ coach Chip Kelly has not decided who will be the starting quarterback this week.

Quarterback Michael Vick hurt his hamstring last week and has been sidelined. Nick Foles replaced the injured Vick for the second straight week, and led the Eagles (3-3) to two straight wins. Now, the team will play Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys (3-3) at home for sole possession of the NFC East, but Kelly has not named who will be at the helm.

In a news conference on Monday, Kelly answered several questions about his QBs, but didn’t give any definite answers.

“Until we know what the health is, I’m not saying what anybody or anybody is,” Kelly said. “All our decisions on who is going to play… [are] based on health.”

Two games back, Vick strained his left hamstring during a win over the New York Giants. Foles entered the game and threw for 197 yards and two touchdowns. Foles then played even bettter against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, where he passed for 296 yards and three TDs. He also ran for another score.

“All of our decisions are made on what’s going to give us the best opportunity to win,” Kelly said. “And we have to put healthy guys on the field and make sure we can get a scheme together that’s going to help us beat the Cowboys.”

Vick had played very well too, before the injury. So far this year, he has thrown for 1,185 yards, five touchdowns and two interceptions. Vick has had another 307 yards on the ground and two more TDs.
