Michael Vick will not play against the Redskins

Gregg Rosenthal -

Nick Foles will get his chance to start for the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, as we expected all week.
Ian Rapoport of and NFL Network reported Friday morning that Michael Vick is out for this week's gameEaglescoach Andy Reid has refused to rule Vick out publicly during the week, but we anticipate that changing when he speaks to the media on Friday afternoon.
Rapoport also reported Vick wasn't even close to playing, and has been resting at home most of the week.
The big question with Vick: When will he play again? Reid said that Vick suffered a "significant concussion" and reports suggest that Reid wants to see how Foles handles the starting job. If Reid could make Foles look like a "quarterback of the future" it's possible that the embattled coach could complete the biggest Hail Mary of his career: Keeping his job for another year.
At 3-6, the Eagles are only two games back of the division-leading New York Giants in the loss column. Any remote chance for contention in the NFC East has to start with a win in Washington onSunday. Yeah, we have our doubts that the Eagles can make a run.
