NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Philadelphia coach Andy Reid is switching quarterbacks again and says Michael Vick will start Nov. 7 against Indianapolis in the Eagles’ next game after their bye week.
Kevin Kolb made his third straight start Sunday, and the Eagles lost 37-19 to Tennessee. Kolb threw for 231 yards and was intercepted twice. He also lost a fumble at the Tennessee 3 in the third quarter.
Vick was the third quarterback against Tennessee as he recovered from injured rib cartilage.
Reid said after the loss that Vick would be his starter coming out of the bye.
Kolb began the season as the Eagles’ starter after they traded away Donovan McNabb. But he suffered a concussion in the opener and Vick played so well in his place that he remained the starter when Kolb returned.
Then Vick got hurt himself.
