he Eagles will be missing a couple of defensive players this weekend as they look to snap their home losing streak in Lincoln Financial Field. Safety Earl Wolff and back-up linebacker Jake Knott have been ruled out by the Eagles for this weekend’s home game against the Washington Redskins.
Mike Vick is still bothered by a hamstring injury that has been nagging him for the last month. The veteran quarterback was limited in practices early in the week but did get in a full practice on Friday. Even if his hamstring stops bothering by Sunday, it should be expected he will serve as nothing more than a back-up quarterback option to Nick Foles.
Everything is on track for Michael Vick to return to the starting lineup for the Philadelphia Eagles this weekend as the New York Giants come to town. Second-year quarterback Nick Foles is out after not practicing all week due to a concussion, so Vick’s return is quite timely for the Eagles.
Vick taking in a full practice for the first time this week should be encouraging as the mobile quarterback comes back from a hamstring injury. Although Foles will get the start and the offense has performed well with the second-year quarterback under center, having the possibility of going back to Vick in case of emergency is comforting.
Vick was limited in practices all week, but head coach Chip Kelly has decided to hold off on making a call on his starting quarterback. It is likely Nick Foles will get the start against the Bucs, after replacing the injured Vick in the win over the Giants.
The Eagles will need to have a stable offense capable of providing protection to quarterback Michael Vick and clearing running lanes for running back LeSean McCoy. The offensive line will be critical for the Eagles.
