Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid said
Monday that quarterback Michael Vick has a "pretty significant" concussion.
Vick threw a touchdown pass on the first drive of Sunday's game against the
Cowboys, but took a pair of hits on consecutive plays early in the second
quarter. He left the game and was diagnosed with a concussion.
Nick Foles, Philadelphia's third-round draft pick out of Arizona last April,
made his NFL debut, connecting on 22-of-32 passes for 219 yards with a
touchdown and an interception.
The oft-injured Vick has not missed a game all season, but that streak could
end this Sunday against the Redskins. He has only played a full 16-game slate
one time during his 10-year career (2006).
Reid said Vick was foggy after the game and has a headache.
Vick has not been ruled out for Sunday's game against Washington, but it seems
likely that Foles will get the start.
In other injury news, wide receiver Jeremy Maclin has a low back strain and
wide receiver Jason Avant is dealing with a hamstring strain.
The Eagles' 38-23 loss Sunday was the team's fifth straight setback, dropping
them to 3-6 on the season.
