Vick still had a headache as of Monday afternoon and will not practice when the team reconvenes at the NovaCare Complex on Wednesday. Unless Vick is able to make a remarkable recovery, rookie Nick Foles will make his first career start at Washington next Sunday. If he does, Foles would become the first Eagles rookie quarterback to start a r...

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.
