Nick Foles will be Eagles’ starting quarterback on Sunday
Eagles head coach Chip Kelly confirmed Wednesday that Nick Foles, who missed last week’s game with a concussion, will be the team’s starter against the Raiders on Sunday.
The Eagles (3-5) are 1-1 with Foles as the starter. He also led them to a win over the Giants after Michael Vick left early with a hamstring injury. Foles has completed 58 percent of his passes for 622 yards and six touchdowns. He’s also ran for 28 yards and a score.
Philadelphia’s fast-paced offense has struggled to score the last two weeks with only 10 combined points in losses to the Cowboys and Giants.
Matt Barkley is expected to back up Foles, as Vick will likely be inactive after aggravating his hamstring.
