Nick Foles to be Philadelphia Eagles' starting QB again?

All signs are pointing to a second consecutive start for Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles on Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys.

Foles handled the first-team reps in Tuesday's drills, per CSN Philadelphia. Michael Vick once again worked behind Matt Barkley as the third-team quarterback.

Vick admitted to reporters Tuesday that his hamstring injury was "a pretty bad pull." He further acknowledged that he's not close to 100 percent and would be relegated to pocket passing if he was forced to play right now. Vick told the Philadelphia Inquirer that it's very unlikely he plays Sunday.

"Another week of rehab could put me in a position where I could start gaining confidence and I can go out and do the things I normally do," Vick said Tuesday.

Coach Chip Kelly has softened his stance on staying the course with Vick going forward.

Offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur said Tuesday that Kelly will address the situation once Vick's hamstring no longer is an issue. For now, Foles is the starter.

As with most fluid quarterback situations, the next game will go a long way in determining whether Foles can build enough momentum to keep Vick on the sideline.
