Michael Vick still has not been cleared, so Andy Reid can continue to evade the question of whether Vick will be the starter when he returns from a concussion.
"We have to get him healthy here to see where he's at," Reid said. "He took another test today and he didn't pass it. I'm not going to put him at risk. I'm not going to do that. That's not where we're going with this thing."
The decision will not be simple. Reid does not look like he'll coach beyond the next five games, but Foles' development could be meaningful for the long-term future of the franchise. The balance between playing young players and veteran players will be an ongoing subplot to the final month of the season.
"You saw some young guys play today," Reid said. "If the young guys are available to play, we're going to put them in and play them. If that's the situation, I'm not going to hestitate to do that. But we'll see how things go here as we continue to roll on."
