Buzzing on Yahoo Sports:

Foles remains Eagles starting QB -- for now

The SportsXchange

Nick Foles will work with the first-team offense when the Philadelphia Eagles resume practice on Tuesday, but Eagles coach Chip Kelly said he will not name the team's No. 1 quarterback until Michael Vick is healthy.

Foles has been outstanding the past two games as a replacement for Vick, who is out with a hamstring injury.

"I think what we've done for the last two weeks has worked for us pretty good," Kelly said Monday. "So we're going to stick to that. It's gotten us 16 touchdowns, no interceptions and two wins, so why would we change?"

Foles has those 16 touchdowns and zero interceptions for the season. He has 10 touchdown passes the past two games, both Philadelphia victories.

Technically, Foles is still not the Eagles No. 1 quarterback.

Kelly said he plans to take it day by day until Vick is ready to return to action. It's unclear when Vick will be able to come back.

"When that day comes, we'll have a discussion," Kelly said. "That day's not here. It's who's up, who's available. I've had guys go down on Friday, so why does it really matter who I say is the starter for the next Sunday's game?"
