Former Wildcat Nick Foles the likely starter for Eagles

Former Arizona Wildcat Nick Foles looks to be the new starting quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles following Michael Vick's concussion against the Cowboys on Sunday.

Former Arizona Wildcat quarterback Nick Foles appears to be the starter for the Philadelphia Eagles next Sunday with Michael Vick suffering from a concussion during their 38-23 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. Foles will likely take all of the first string reps in practice this week while Vick is out. Eagles head coach Andy Reid described Vick's injury as "pretty significant," so it's entirely possible that he misses a substantial amount of time. Depending on Foles' performance and Vick's health, it's also possible that Foles could permanently unseat Vick as the Eagles' starting quarterback.

Foles went 22-32 for 219 yards with a touchdown and an interception in relief against the Cowboys. It was his first ever regular season NFL snaps after having a promising preseason. Foles was the starter for the Wildcats for three years from 2009-2011, and threw for over 10,000 yards and 67 touchdowns. He guided Arizona to a 19-19 record in his time in Tucson, including two winning seasons.
