Eagles injuries: Nick Foles still not cleared to practice; Michael Vick on pace to start

Phil Sears-USA TODAY Sports

Barring a setback to his injured hamstring, Vick will likely be the starting quarterback against the Giants this Sunday. Foles is still suffering from concussion symptoms and has yet to practice this week.

The Philadelphia Eagles' quarterback depth chart remains somewhat uncertain heading into this Sunday's division matchup against New York Giants. While Michael Vick seems likely to return from his hamstring injury, Nick Foles has yet to be cleared to practice, reports Geoff Mosher of CSN Philly.

Foles, who took over for an injured Vick in Week 6, suffered a concussion during last week's loss to the Cowboys and is still experiencing symptoms.

Vick was a full participant in Wednesday's practice and, according to reports, will get the starting nod on Sunday, barring a setback. If Foles is unable to suit up, rookie Matt Barkley will serve as the primary backup.

Vick won the starting job during the preseason and was off to a good start this year when he tweaked a hamstring scrambling in the first half of the Eagles' previous win over the Giants. Foles was brilliant in the second half and followed that performance up with a three-touchdown day in a win over the Buccaneers a week later.

Stirrings of a quarterback controversy were beginning to mount in Philly until last Sunday, when Foles' struggling performance came to an early end after he was concussed late in the third quarter.
