Eagles coach Chip Kelly told reporters Monday that his second-string quarterback will take first-team reps in Tuesday's practice as Michael Vick continues to nurse a tweaked hamstring, per the Eagles' official website.

"I don't know if (Vick) will be able to practice," Kelly said.

And we don't know why Kelly would do anything but give Foles another shot to play after he torched Oakland for an NFL-record-tying seven touchdowns in Sunday's 49-20 romp over the Raiders.

The Eagles have a nice problem on their hands.

Other injuries we're tracking on this busy Monday:

1. A win over the Baltimore Ravens didn't come without its black-and-blue marks for Cleveland. Browns coach Rob Chudzinski announced Monday that Jason Campbell suffered bruised ribs in Sunday's 24-18 win, but the quarterback isn't expected to miss time. Campbell's X-rays were negative, and Chud said the signal-caller will "probably practice tomorrow," per Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal.

2. The Buffalo Bills announced that rookie quarterback EJ Manuel has been fully cleared to return after spraining his LCL in Week 5 against the Cleveland Browns.

3. Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph suffered a fractured foot in Sunday's loss to the Dallas Cowboys, coach Leslie Frazier told reporters. Christian Ponder's favorite target could miss up to one month.

4. Denver Broncos tight end Julius Thomas won't practice Monday after sustaining a mild ankle sprain in Week 8. It's not unusual for Denver to rest players early in the week, so let's see where Thomas is by Wednesday.

5. Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White (hamstring) didn't play Sunday but staged a pregame workout prior to the team's loss to the Carolina Panthers, per ESPN. We expect White to play this week against the Seahawks.

6. Speaking of Seattle, coach Pete Carroll is not counting on Percy Harvin to make his season debut Sunday against the Falcons, calling the receiver day to day. It would make logical (and poetic) sense to debut the dynamic playmaker in Week 11 against Harvin's former team, the Vikings.

7. Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor suffered a sprained knee in the blowout loss to the Eagles and is day to day, per the San Francisco Chronicle. But the Raiders appear more concerned with the injury status of Darren McFadden, who re-injured his hamstring Sunday. McFadden already has exited two games and missed one contest with the recurring injury.

8. Browns wide receiver Greg Little sustained a minor shoulder sprain against the Ravens, but the injury isn't serious and he might practice Tuesday, according to Chudzinski.

9. St. Louis tight end Lance Kendricks fractured his finger when he landed in the end zone during Sunday's 28-21 loss to the Tennessee Titans, Rams coach Jeff Fisher announced Monday.

10. Jets wide receiver Jeremy Kerley has a dislocated elbow, ESPNNewYork.com reported, per a source. He's expected to miss at least a few weeks.
