Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles likely to start vs Oakland Raiders


The Philadelphia Eagles lost quarterback Michael Vick on Sunday after he suffered a serious hamstring injury vs the New York Giants that will likely sideline him for the next month or so after Vick admitted h e heard a “pop” sound when he strained the hamstring.

For the meantime, Matt Barkley is the starter until Nick Foles is able to return, which may be surprisingly soon as he recovers from a concussion:


It’s two weeks without an offensive touchdown and counting in Philly, and things only got worse Sunday afternoon on their home field after a 15-7 Eagles loss to a last-place New York Giants.

With the Oakland Raiders up next, things aren’t about to get any easier.
