This Given Sunday is examining the biggest injury questions before each week of the NFL season. Here are the top-five health-related storylines entering Week 11. Darren McFadden It turns out the belief when McFadden was injured on Nov. 4 was that he'd miss 2-4 weeks, which means he's a huge question mark for Sunday after missing practice to start the week. Expect Marcel Reese to be Oakland's lead back against a very vulnerable Saints defense, but keep both out of your fantasy lineup if possible. Neither is reliable and that game doesn't kick off until later in the day. Michael Vick Vick still hasn't been ruled out, but as of midweek he'd yet to be cleared by an independent neurologist after suffering a "significant" concussion in Week 10 against the Cowboys. There's a chance the Eagles will be cautious here anyway, and there's even a chance Vick doesn't return regardless of his health situation. That's gotta be tough ...

Michael Vick isn’t expected to play tackle football this weekend, as the Eagles turn to Nick Foles while Vick attempts to recover from a concussion.

Another Eagles’ turnover: This time at quarterback

When Michael Vick got concussed in the second quarter of the Eagles’ 38-23 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, first it is a real shame for such a gamer. It might be a blessing in disguise for Philadelphia Eagle fans. Not that Nick Foles will definitely be a World Beater, but the dude is 6’6”, 243 pounds, compared to Michael Vicks’ 6-0, 215 pounds. Foles in size and stature is closest...

Philadelphia Eagles: Week 11 NFL Power Rankings (#21)

Last week: 18 (-3) Record: 3-6 It was a very smart of Andy Reid to “rest” Michael Vick the rest of the way. He’s not making the playoffs, but he can still save his job if Nick Foles goes say 4-3. He can blame their slow start on Vick and his history developing quarterbacks will probably convince management to let Reid stick around and develop the promising young quarterback...
