Rookie Nick Foles to get the start in place of injured Michael Vick

Christian Petersen

Former Arizona quarterback Nick Foles will get the first start of his rookie season, standing in for an injured Michael Vick as the Eagles take on the Redskins.

Former Arizona Wildcat Nick Foles will be the starting quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles as they face the Washington Redskins on Sunday. Michael Vick will be on the sideline after sustaining a concussion in Week 10 against the Dallas Cowboys, leaving Foles to pick up his first start midway through his rookie season.

Foles was the starting Arizona quarterback from midway through his redshirt sophomore year. Despite an 11-16 record in Foles' two complete years as a starter, the quarterback collected a number of the school's records. He has the most career completions in school history, the most completions in a season, the most career passing yards, the most passing yards in a season, the highest career and season completion rate, and is tied for the most touchdowns in a season and career. As a senior he had a 69.1 completion percentage and averaged 352.6 yards of total offense per game, first in the Pac-12 and fifth nationally.

Foles was drafted by the Eagles in the third round of the 2012 NFL Draft, 88th overall.
