Although, Michael Vick's status was doubtful all week after he suffered a concussion versus the Cowboys, NFL reporter Adam Schefter tweeted that Nick Foles is indeed the Eagles starting QB for Sunday.

"Hardly a surprise but Eagles QB Michael Vick will not play Sunday and Nick Foles will start."

Sunday at FedEx marks Foles's first NFL start. His debut came last week after Vick left in the second quarter with a concussion. In what ended in a 38-23 defeat by the Cowboys, Foles threw his first career TD pass to Jeremy Maclin for 44 yards and completed 22 passes out of 32 attempts for 219 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. 

Philadelphia drafted the University of Arizona QB in the 3rd round (88th overall) of the 2012 NFL Draft.
