Michael Vick injury update: Nick Foles back in the saddle, has fantasy value

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Michael Vick aggravated his hamstring injury in Week 8. We break down the fantasy implications.

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick will not play against the Oakland Raiders on Sunday. He suffered a hamstring strain in Week 8 and did not practice at all this week.

Oh, brother. Marcus Vick might have an easier time staying healthier than his brother and now Michael has yet another hamstring strain on his record. He aggravated the same spot of his muscle and the team ruled him out on Tuesday morning.

Vick has been in and out of the lineup all year and he's played in just six games, totaling 1,215 passing yards, five passing TDs, three interception, 306 rushing yards and two rushing scores.

Now Nick Foles will step back into the starting lineup yet again. He is over a concussion and will be able to start in what's shaping up to be a nice matchup.

Fantasy impact: This is such a mess. Vick owners should probably hold him, but it's not like he's completely undroppable. Made up words aside, Nick Foles is a decent pickup and he should be a solid, low-end QB1 for those that need help this week.
