Eagles quarterback Nick Foles was taken to the locker room during Philadelphia's game against the Cowboys on Sunday with a head injury and his return is uncertain. He will be replaced by rookie backup Matt Barkley.
Foles, who had a four-touchdown game against the Buccaneers last week and seemed poised to possibly steal the starting job from an injured Michael Vick, has struggled on Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys. He is just 11-of-29 for 80 yards and no touchdowns as the Eagles trail 17-3 in the fourth quarter.
Philadelphia drafted Barkley out of USC, a somewhat surprising move considering the type of quarterback that head coach Chip Kelly utilized at Oregon and apparent needs at other positions, but he has come in and remained the third-string QB this season. He now makes his NFL debut against the Cowboys as his team fights for first place in the NFC East.
