Now Foles could start this coming Sunday when the Philadelphia Eagles face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, with Vick still ailing, as ESPN's Adam Schefter reported.
Eagles QB Michael Vick is expected to miss Sunday's start vs. Tampa Bay due to his hamstring injury. Nick Foles time.

Then again, straight from the horse's mouth, Eagles head coach Chip Kelly said he's not sure who will start Sunday.
#Eagles Coach Chip Kelly: I don't know if Vick will play Sunday. Right now he's day to day.

Foles completed 16-of-25 passes for 197 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in just over a half of work. Last season as a rookie, Foles' one victory in his six starts in replacing Vick came against the Bucs. If Foles starts, it would be a battle of the former third-round picks with Foles (2012 draft) facing off against the Bucs' Mike Glennon (2013), who lost his first career start last week.
