Vick skips practice; Foles prepares for Redskins

PHILADELPHIA — Nick Foles officially remained No. 2 on the depth chart, even as he talked like a starter.

Foles will most likely make his first career start Sunday at Washington, not an injured Michael Vick.

Vick's status atop the depth chart is a mere formality. He did not practice or even come to the Eagles' practice facility again Wednesday as he recovers from a significant concussion suffered in last week's loss to Dallas. His headaches are subsiding, for now, but the veteran still needs to complete the mandated concussion testing this week.

Foles, a third-round draft pick out of Arizona, ran the offense in front of A-list actor Bradley Cooper and remained confident he can help the Eagles end their miserable five-game losing streak.

"I'm going to do my job right now until he gets healthy," Foles said.

Because Vick had not started his concussion testing, he has not officially been ruled out of Sunday's game.
