Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Michael Vick will remain the Philadelphia
Eagles' starting quarterback against the New Orleans Saints on Monday night,
the team announced Wednesday.
Vick has struggled this season for the 3-4 Eagles, completing 59 percent of
his passes for 1,823 yards with nine touchdowns and eight interceptions.
He has also lost five of nine fumbles while rushing for 247 yards, leading to
speculation that rookie backup Nick Foles could replace Vick under center.
Selected in the third round of the 2012 draft, Foles completed 40-of-63 passes
for 553 yards, six touchdowns and two interceptions in the preseason, but has
yet to appear in a regular-season game.
Philadelphia is coming off a 30-17 drubbing at the hands of the Atlanta
Falcons on Sunday.
The loss marked the first time in coach Andy Reid's 14-year tenure that his
team was defeated coming off a bye.
