The Nick Foles era is starting earlier than expected.
Michael Vick went down mid-way through the second quarter after taking a blow to his head. After being assessed on the sideline for an eye and head injury, he’s been ruled out for the rest of the game with a concussion. Vick was scrambling on the play when defensive tackle Jay Ratliff landed on the Eagles’ quarterback awkwardly.
Foles has come into the game for the Eagles after weeks of speculation over when he would replace Vick. The rookie quarterback was drafted out of Arizona with the No. 88 overall pick. He had a solid preseason for the Eagles and may be given the rest of the season to see if he can be the signal caller of the future for Philly.
