Foles breaks hand, Vick likely to start

It looks as if Michael Vick will be back on the field for the Eagles for Sunday's season finale against the New York Giants.

That's because Nick Foles has a hairline fracture in his throwing hand. He was hurt just before halftime last Sunday against Washington, but finished the game after x-rays were negative. But an MRI revealed the injury earlier this week.

Foles set several Eagles records for a rookie quarterback this season, but that hasn't been reflected in the team's record - the Birds were 1-5 in the six games he started.

Vick hasn't played since suffering a concussion during a loss to the Cowboys on Nov. 11. He was recently cleared to return. If it's not Vick under center this weekend, it would fall to third-string quarterback Trent Edwards, who hasn't played yet this year.
