Foles takes over for Michael Vick, who will not play after suffering a concussion last week in a loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported Vick will not play.

Michael Vick is still feeling the effects of a substantial concussion, and will not be ready for Sunday, and may not be ready to play for quite some time. That leaves the Philadelphia Eagles at 3-6 with their rookie QB Nick Foles set to take over the reins.
