Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick needs to continue to rest after getting a concussion in Week 10, coach Andy Reid said on Wednesday. Vick will not practice and is still going through concussion protocol.
The quarterback was hurt in first half of last Sunday's loss to the Dallas Cowboys and replaced by Nick Foles, who threw for 219 yards, a touchdown and an interception. Reid has not ruled Vick out for Sunday but said Foles needs to prepare this week like he's going to play. The Eagles face the Washington Redskins in Week 11.
Fantasy Impact: The consensus is that Vick will not play this week, even if Reid won't rule Vick out. Earlier this season the Eagles considered benching Vick and this would be an easy way to slide Foles into the lineup.
Foles wasn't great in relief last Sunday but could be worth grabbing by owners who are without a quarterback this week. He should be considered a No. 2 fantasy option this week with more value in keeper or dynasty leagues.
