Kelly Won’t Declare Foles Full-Time Starter Despite Record-Tying Week
(NEW YORK) — Despite tying an NFL record by throwing seven touchdown passes in the Philadelphia Eagles’ win over the Oakland Raiders Sunday, quarterback Nick Foles has not been named the Eagles’ long-term starter.
Philadelphia head coach Chip Kelly wouldn’t say Monday who the starting quarterback would be once Michael Vick comes back from his hamstring injury.
“I think you’re more worried about it than he is, so….That’s what I think,” Kelly told the media when asked how he would possibly tell Foles he isn’t the starting quarterback.
Vick was originally hurt Oct. 6 against the New York Giants. He missed two games before starting Oct. 27 against the Giants. Vick played nine plays in that game before reinjuring the hamstring.
Vick is still hampered by the injury.
“They told me his leg is still sore and he can’t go tomorrow (for Tuesday’s practice),” Kelly said.
Foles is 2-1 as a starter this season for the Eagles (4-5).
