Eagles Move Closer to Nick Foles Era

Nick Foles practiced with the first team this week and stuck around for extra film work.

He’s ready to make his first career NFL start for the Philadelphia Eagles.

All he needs now is to officially and publicly be named the starter. The Eagles again practiced another day without injured quarterback Michael Vick. The veteran has sat out since suffering a severe concussion in last week’s loss to Dallas, turning playcalling duties over to Foles, a third-round draft pick.

Foles relieved Vick against the Cowboys and is ready to start Sunday against the Washington Redskins. Because Vick had not completed his concussion testing, he has not officially been ruled out of Sunday’s game. That could come Friday when coach Andy Reid talks to the media after practice.

Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg sounded like a coach who knew he’d be tightening the playbook for the rookie.
