Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid announced Monday that Nick Foles will start at quarterback for the rest of the season. Foles has started the past three games, including Sunday night's 38-33 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Foles completed 22 of 34 passes for 251 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions. Michael Vick has been out with a concussion. Reid said Vick is making progress in his recovery, but Foles will continue to start regardless of Vick's status. Before the concussion, Vick struggled by turning the ball over 14 times this year. Foles has thrown for 793 yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions and a 73.3 passer rating. Running back LeSean McCoy, also out with a concussion, is improving as well. In his place, rookie Bryce Brown ran for 169 yards with two touchdowns in his second start.
