Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick may have played his last game of the season. Coach Andy Reid said during his Monday press conference that quarterback Michael Vick has a "pretty significant concussion." A source told Yahoo! Sports that "it's a pretty strong bet" Vick will be rested for the remainder of regular season. Vick sustained the concussion during Sunday's 38-23 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, which dropped the Eagles to 3-6. Reid did not rule Vick out from playing this week's game against the Washington Redskins, but he must undergo the league's mandated testing protocol before he can play. Rookie Nick Foles replaced Vick after he was knocked out of the game in the second quarter. Reid said Vick's recollection of the game was "foggy." Vick is resting at home while in communication with head athletic trainer Rick Burkholder. Yahoo! also reported that Reid will use the rest of the season to evaluate Foles as a starter as a way for Reid to save his own job. "I'm 99 percent sure that's exactly what you're going to see happen," the source said. "Andy is going to go to (owner) Jeff (Lurie) and (general manager) Howie (Roseman) and say, 'Let's go with Foles and make the transition to the next era.' " Another source told Yahoo! that Reid has stuck with Vick because he is concerned that he would lose the team if he went to Foles. Foles will start this Sunday if Vick cannot play. Foles went 22 of 32 for 219 yards with a touchdown and an interception against the Cowboys.
