Nick Foles will start his second consecutive game Sunday when the Dallas Cowboys visit, according to Eagles quarterback Michael Vick. 

Vick declared himself out for Sunday's game while he recovers from a pulled left hamstring.

“No I’m not playing this week," Vick said. "Not this week.”

Earlier in the day, Kelly was unclear on Vick's status. Vick and Foles did a joint news conference after practice.

“Every day’s just working, trying to get better," Vick said of his recovery. 

Foles will have a chance to potentially unseat Vick. Foles and Vick, at least publicly, acted like they were not worried about that.

"The questions are asked, and that's the one thing with Mike and I, we don't worry about it," Foles said. "I love Mike. We have a great relationship and we don't worry about that. We know the most important thing is for the Philadelphia Eagles to win, no matter who's at quarterback."
