Nick Foles will start at quarterback for the Eagles on Sunday against the Oakland Raiders, coach Chip Kelly said. Kelly announced his decision before Wednesday's practice, one day after Foles returned from a weeklong absence because of a concussion. "I was really happy with how Nick practiced today," Kelly said. "Nick did a really good job, and Nick is going to be our starting quarterback this week. He'll take the reps with the [first team] this week, and we'll get ready as a team to prepare for Oakland.

AT SOME point, the NFC Least is going to stop being the land of perpetual playoff hope. At some point, the Eagles aren't going to be able to wake up the morning after yet another loss and say, "Hey, we're still only one game out of first place. " At 3-5, they are running out of chances. Seriously. I mean it. They are. Really. The 4-4 Cowboys, who are hosting the 1-6 Vikings this week, can't keep slipping on banana peels forever. So, Sunday's road game against the 3-4 Raiders is a must-win game for the Eagles.

Nick Foles received medical clearance to resume playing Tuesday and the second-year Eagles quarterback returned to practice. No starter has been named for Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders, but Foles is in line to return to action if he remains healthy. He suffered a concussion in the Eagles' 17-3 loss to Dallas on Oct. 20. Foles split snaps at practice with rookie Matt Barkley. Michael Vick, who has an injured hamstring, was at practice but did not participate in team activities.

NICK FOLES underwent ImPACT neurocognitive testing yesterday with the hope of being cleared to practice today, but Eagles general manager Howie Roseman said the team won't have a clear picture of Foles' availability until this morning. "There's a thorough evaluation to be done of where he stands," beyond the mere taking of the test, Roseman said following his 94 WIP radio show last night. Roseman said he expects to know "something firm" by practice time. Earlier, Eagles coach Chip Kelly indicated he does not expect Michael Vick to be available this week after reinjuring his left hamstring in Sunday's loss to the Giants.

It was another Monday without a starting quarterback for the Eagles. For the fourth straight week, coach Chip Kelly could not definitively say who his quarterback would be. This is what Kelly would say: Michael Vick underwent an MRI exam on his strained left hamstring and Nick Foles was undergoing tests on his concussion, including the ImPACT test. Kelly said it's unlikely that Vick will play Sunday against the Oakland Raiders, but he did not know the status of Foles. General manager Howie Roseman said the Eagles would have a better idea of Foles' status on Tuesday morning.

Nick Foles still has not been cleared to return to practice after sustaining a concussion in last week's loss to the Dallas Cowboys. The quarterback was in the Eagles' training facility on Saturday. After he passes the ImPACT baseline concussion test, an independent neurologist must still clear Foles to play. "So that's a big question mark going into next week," coach Chip Kelly said. "He can't participate in anything. So he was in, he attended meetings on Saturday, and he was around.

He had spent a few minutes whispering into Matt Barkley's ear Sunday, offering some encouragement to a first-year quarterback who'd gone through another long, losing day, and now Jeffrey Lurie was heading for the exit of the Eagles' locker room. His team had just lost to the Giants, 15-7, and for the second straight game, the Eagles didn't score an offensive touchdown. The ballyhoo that had accompanied Lurie's January hiring of Chip Kelly as coach seems a little silly now, with the Eagles at 3-5 and with their quarterback situation in such turmoil.

MICHAEL VICK admitted the truth yesterday afternoon, after he got to talking for a while. As soon as Nick Foles suffered that concussion last Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys, Vick and his sore hamstring were coming back. As he said, "Once Nick got hurt last week, I just made up my mind that I was going to try to get out there. " Thus began what turned into a self-fulfilling prophecy. It also happens to be Chip Kelly's biggest mistake to date as the Eagles' coach, his failure to make the best of a wretched situation.

Michael Vick said he would have continued to play on Sunday had that been asked of him. If there is nothing else consistent about the Eagles starting quarterback - and pretty much there is nothing else consistent - it is that he always wants to keep playing football regardless. Criticize whatever else you like, but Vick doesn't look for the sideline. He has to be taken out, and that is what Chip Kelly did in the second quarter of Sunday's dreadful 15-7 loss to the New York Giants.

Michael Vick made the determination after Nick Foles' concussion last week. He would try to play against the New York Giants, and the apparent weeklong indecision was immaterial to his status. But the player who was supposed to rectify the Eagles' woes only muddied the mess, and ended up watching most of the game on a lonely bench with a towel draped over his head. Vick appeared languid and limited at the beginning of Sunday's 15-7 loss to the Giants. Then he felt a pop in his left hamstring while scrambling late in the first quarter.
