Eagles QB Nick Foles diagnosed with concussion
Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles has been diagnosed with a concussion, according to ProFootballTalk.
Head coach Chip Kelly told the media that Foles was concussed during Sunday’s loss to the Cowboys, and will be unable to play or practice until he has cleared the NFL’s concussion protocols. Foles was starting yesterday because Michael Vick was still out with an injured hamstring. Kelly was quick to point out that just because Foles is hurt it doesn’t mean Vick’s hamstring is ready:
“It’s all based on what his health is. We’ve listened to Mike the whole time and we’ll continue to listen to Mike,” Kelly said, via Philly.com. “Just cause one guy got hurt that doesn’t make another guy get healthy quicker.”
If both Foles and Vick are unable to play on Sunday, Philadelphia’s only current option is third string QB Matt Barkley, who went 11-for-20 with 3 interceptions after taking over against Dallas.
