Eagles QB Foles named starter for rest of season

Posted: Updated:

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Eagles quarterback Nick Foles has been named Philadelphia's starter for the rest of the season.

Coach Chip Kelly made the announcement Tuesday as the team returned from its bye week and began preparations for the Arizona Cardinals (7-4) on Sunday.

The Eagles (6-5) are tied for first place in the NFC East with the Dallas Cowboys.

"Nick will be our starter," Kelly said. "And hopefully we get Mike (Vick) back through a full week of practice and he'll be able to be the No. 2 guy."

Foles, in his second season, replaced Vick, who re-injured his hamstring in a loss to the New York Giants on Oct. 27. The Eagles have saved their season after a rocky start and he's been the focal point.
