Michael Vick injury update: Missed time could be fantasy nail in the coffin

Derick E. Hingle-US PRESSWIRE

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick will miss Week 11 with a concussion. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick has been roughed up quite a bit this year, but it will finally cause him to miss some significant time. Vick was already ruled out by the team this week with a concussion that he sustained last game.

Starting in his place on Sunday will be rookie passer Nick Foles. In his first career start, Foles will have an opportunity to do what Vick couldn't, and that's win games.

Fantasy Analysis: Michael Vick fantasy owners should be sweating the first career start of Nick Foles. With this franchise about to be in serious turnaround, Foles will get a legitimate look from the organization.

Hopefully owners of Vick understood the inherent risk and spent a draft pick on a serviceable backup. If not, look to the waiver wire for Foles or someone like Andy Dalton. With the final stretch of the season on the horizon, Vick could be out of time in Philadelphia.
