Michael Vick remains the starting quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles.
The team announced this morning that coach Andy Reid has said he will not make a change, according to Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer.
The Eagles will return to practice on Thursday as they prepare for Monday night’s game at New Orleans. Reid, who fired defensive coordinator Juan Castillo before the team’s bye week, did not give Vick much of a backing following the team’s 30-17 loss to the Atlanta Falcons at home on Sunday.
Speculation was Reid would turn to rookie Nick Foles, who was impressive during preseason. But giving Foles his first shot in a road game in a loud dome like the one in New Orleans probably didn’t make a lot of sense. So, Vick keeps his job for now with an urgency to get things turned around.
