Rich Schultz /Getty Images(PHILADELPHIA) — The Philadelphia Eagles may not have a quarterback controversy…at least not for another week.

Michael Vick has missed most of the team’s last two games with a hamstring injury and it seems he may need some more time to heal.

“I feel it getting better,” Vick said. “It’s just when I try to burst, that knot is still there. I think another week of rehab can put me in position where I can start gaining some confidence in it and doing things I normally do….It can be re-aggravated quickly. Because mine is up so high, and the way I run, I’ve got to take precautions. I can’t overdo it. If I do, it can be another two to three weeks.”

The Eagles are 2-0 since Nick Foles took over for an injured Michael Vick in the Eagles Week 5 win over the New York Giants.
Foles performance in the two wins has created debate whether he or Vick should be the team’s starter.

Vick was active for last Sunday’s win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but would have only played in an emergency.

This Sunday the Eagles take on the Dallas Cowboys. The winner will take over sole possession of first place in the NFC East.
