Michael Vick suffered a concussion in the second quarter of the Eagles-Cowboys game and will not return.

Backup Nick Foles filled in for Vick. The rookie took the field to a loud ovation from the Lincoln Financial Field crowd with the Eagles and Dallas tied, 7-7. The Eagles went three and out on his first series.

Vick went into the locker room with an eye injury. It was unclear on which play Vick was injured but he was hit by Cowboys linebacker Ernie Sims on his last play. He was also being evaluated for a cocussion. Vick suffered a concussion last year against the Falcons, but played the following week.

Vick had not missed a snap all season up until his injury.
