Andy Reid says Vick is "Unlikely" to play this Sunday

The Nick Foles era in underway, and it doesn't sound like Michael Vick is healthy enough to stop it.

Speaking at the NovaCare Complex the say after his team suffered a 38-23 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, Andy Reid said that it is "unlikely" Michael Vick will play this Sunday.

"It's a pretty significant one," Reid said of Vick's concussion.

Reid said that Vick has a pretty bad headache and is sore. He also mentioned that Vick had trouble remembering things about the game.

While Vick did not speak to the media last night, he did appear pretty out of it when he walked though the locker room about 45 minutes after the game. Foles said that he did speak to Vick, but just to tell the quarterback he hopes he feels better.

With Vick at home resting and the time table for his return uncertain, Reid said that Foles will get all of the reps with the starting unit this week. Foles went 22/32 for 219 yards to go along with 1 touchdown and 1 interception in yesterday's game. Foles would not put any of the blame for the errant throws he did have on a lack of reps.

Will Vick ever get the chance to return to his role as starting quarterback?Reid would not commit to Vick, saying simply that he "cannot predict the future."

The future, of course, is why Vick will likely not get a chance to return. Unless Foles really plays badly against the Redskins this Sunday, the Eagles ownership will want to see what they have in the 3rd rounder from Arizona. If Foles looks lost this weekend and Vick is healthy, they might bring Vick back and let Foles learn from the sideline some more.

Still, the chances are that we might have seen the last of Vick as the starting quarterback for the Eagles yesterday.
