Eagles coach Andy Reid all but acknowledged that quarterback Michael Vick won't play this Sunday at Washington.

Reid said Vick has a "pretty significant" concussion from Sunday's loss to the Cowboys. He said the Eagles will follow the league protocol, and that rookie Nick Foles will take the practice reps Wednesday.

"Michael's our quarterback, but I have confidence in Nick," said Reid, who danced around the issue of what would happen if Foles played well. He said he isn't thinking in terms of going to the rookie after a certain number of losses.

Reid said right guard Danny Watkins might be back this week. He wouldn't speculate on whether Dennis Kelly might move out to tackle in place of King Dunlap or Demetress Bell.
