Vick says Foles ready to start at QB for Eagles
By Associated Press

Eagles quarterback Michael Vick, still recovering from a hamstring injury, does not expect to play in Sunday's game against Dallas.

However, coach Chip Kelly has not officially ruled him out yet.

Vick has practiced on a limited basis all week, while second-year quarterback Nick Foles has worked with the first team.

The Eagles (3-3) have won consecutive games, with Foles largely under center, and Sunday's game with the Cowboys (3-3) is for first place in the NFC East.

Vick spoke to reporters on Thursday at the team's training complex after practice, and essentially ruled himself out.

"I don't want to push it too much and just let things happen naturally. It's going to be fun to watch. I look forward to watching Nick (Foles) play," Vick said. "I've had some great battles with the Dallas Cowboys and they've all been fun. Nick will get a chance to experience that."
