Mike Vick's hamstring issues are expected to keep him out of Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Bucs, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Nick Foles, who came in and helped the team earn the victory up in New York yesterday, will step in and take the starting role.
Vick not being able to go eases the "QB controversy" debate just a little. It does seem a little curious that the team already knows on Monday that Vick will not be able to go next weekend. Does that mean Vick's injury is pretty serious or is the team just being cautious and getting Foles the bulk of the work in practice this week?
Or, the Eagles could be looking at the opponent and thinking it's not worth putting a Michael Vick who isn't 100% out on the field regardless. Nick Foles can beat Tampa.
Eagles QB Michael Vick is expected to miss Sunday's start vs. Tampa Bay due to his hamstring injury. Nick Foles time.
