Eagles quarterback Nick Foles was diagnosed with a concussion and Michael Vick is still recovering from a pulled left hamstring, and the status of both quarterbacks remains undetermined. If neither quarterback can play on Sunday against the New York Giants, Matt Barkley would start.
Eagles coach Chip Kelly said he doesn't know who will take first-team snaps when the Eagles resume practice on Tuesday.
"We’ll make that determination when we get to tomorrow," Kelly said.
Foles must go through NFL concussion protocol and be cleared by an independent neurologist before he can play.
“I saw Nick after the game, he seems like he’s doing well," Kelly said. "There’s a protocol and a system you go through. He says he feels good. We’ll see how it goes as the week progresses."
Vick worked out before the game and "feels like he's moving in the right direction," Kelly said. But Kelly said Foles' health does not affect the status of Vick, who was an emergency quarterback last week. Kelly will not rush Vick's recovery or lower the threshold for Vick's return because Foles might not play.
“It’s all based on what his health is," Kelly said. "I’m not going put Mike out there if Mike can’t be productive. …That doesn’t change. Just because someone else got here, that doesn’t make another guy get healthy quicker.”
So that could put the spotlight on Barkley, a rookie who went 11 of 20 for 129 yards and three interceptions on Sunday. Kelly said it was a tough spot for Barkley, considering it was his first game and the team was down two touchdowns and needed to pass on every snap.
