NFL Trade Rumors:
Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reports that a source has informed him that Michael Vick is dealing with a truly “significant“ concussion.
It was assumed that the Eagles referred to Vick’s concussion as significant to allow them to make the change to rookie QB Nick Foles, but it appears as though Vick will be out for some time. There was already some suggestions that the Eagles were prepared to have Foles start each of their remaining seven games, but given the serious nature of Vick’s head injury, this actually seems like reasonable possibility.
There’s almost no chance Vick is back in Philadelphia next season. He has base salaries of $15.5 million, $12.5 million, and $14.5 million coming in the next three years, which makes it very likely that he will be looking for a new team during the offseason.
BEST OF MAXIM
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick was at risk of
being benched due to poor play entering Sunday’s matchup against the Dallas
Cowboys. The quarterback was ultimately removed from the game not because of
his erratic production but because he sustained yet another concussion, one
that coach Andy Reid termed “pretty significant,” reports Cindy Boren of the
Eagles quarterback Michael Vick will miss Sunday's game vs. the Washington Redskins due to the effects of a concussion.
Rookie Nick Foles, who replaced Vick during the 38-23 loss to Dallas on Sunday, and who practiced with the first team all week, will get his first NFL start in a battle of 3-6 teams fighting to save their seasons.

Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid says Michael Vick suffered a ''pretty significant' concussion and told the quarterback to stay home Monday and rest.

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...

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...
It's the battle of the NFC East's bottom teams for this matchup.Both teams showed a lot of promise at the beginning with Robert Griffin III leading the Redskins to a 2-2 record and Michael Vick leading the the Eagles to 3-1 record.However, a lot has changed since then as both teams currently stand at 3-6 and barely clinging to any hopes of making it to the playoffs.Come Sunday...
23-year-old Nick Foles now has the opportunity of a lifetime--- a starting QB gig in the NFL. It's an amazing development, considering previous QB#1 Mike Vick had taken a huge beating at the hands of opposing defensive pressures, but was not knocked out on a TKO until Sundays' tough loss against Dallas.
