Michael Vick will remain the starting quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 9, coach Andy Reid confirmed on Wednesday. Vick has struggled with consistency this season and called more attention to the team's quarterback situation after last weekend's loss to Atlanta by saying that Reid was "obviously" thinking about making a change.
There was talk that Vick could be replaced by Nick Foles, who played well in the preseason for the Eagles. Vick has thrown eight interceptions and has also had a problem with fumbles during Philadelphia's 3-4 start to the season. The Eagles are off on Wednesday and will face the New Orleans Saints on Monday.
Fantasy Impact: Vick's fantasy owners will be happier about this than some Eagles fans, as a move to Foles could have left some owners scrambling for a replacement quarterback in Week 9.
Vick threw for 191 yards and a touchdown in last week's loss to the Falcons and has a chance to put up even better fantasy numbers in Week 9 against a terrible Saints defense. He could be worth having in the lineup on Monday.
