Kelly isn’t wrong; Foles has played well in his last two starts. Take a look at the numbers: 34 of 46 (73.9%) with 634 yards, 10 touchdowns and 0 INTs for a 155.3 passer rating. Most importantly, the Eagles are 2-0 in those games.
Assuming Eskin’s report is true, Michael Vick won’t play again this season, barring an injury to Foles. Vick, if healthy, would likely be the team’s primary backup QB in this case. It seems like Vick still isn’t 100% healthy yet though. He re-injured his hamstring a few weeks ago and hasn’t been able to fully participate in practice since then.
Vick was originally named the team’s starter after winning the job in an open competition held in training camp and preseason. The veteran quarterback hasn’t started since returning too early and looking unfit to play against the Giants in Week 8.
Injury update: Speaking of injuries, but unrelated to the main subject of this post, Eskin also gave an update on some of the Eagles’ injured players. According to the report, Eagles rookie Earl Wolff is likely out versus Washington with a knee injury. Mychal Kendricks (knee) might also miss time, but starting left tackle Jason Peters is likely to play.
The Cincinnati Bengals lost Sunday’s game to the Baltimore Ravens, but middle linebacker Vincent Rey did everything he could on an afternoon when the defense was sorely missing Geno Atkins.
Rey impacted every phase of the game. He was key in stopping Ray Rice, derailed Joe Flacco and gave his team a chance. The Bengals offense wasn’t able to hold up their Soccer Cheap Jerseys end of the bargain, but Cheap Authentic Hockey Jerseys Rey should run away with defensive player of the week honors.
