Vick suffered a hamstring injury in last week's win over the New York Giants. He was limited in practice all week and hinted that he wouldn't play in Week 6, but the team was coy about his status. Vick got in a full practice on Friday and was officially listed as questionable on the injury report, but all signs point towards him returning in Week 7.

Nick Foles will be making the start for the Eagles. Foles finished the game last week in Vick's place, completing 16-of-25 passes for 197 yards and two touchdowns. Rookie Matt Barkley got more practice reps as the primary backup and will be dressing for the first time all season after being inactive the first five games.
