Michael Vick's concussion 'pretty significant'

Sounds like Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick will not play on Sunday at Washington.

And it’s worth wondering if the curtains are closing on Vick’s career with the Eagles as the season continues to spin out of control following Sunday’s loss to the Dallas Cowboys.

Vick left the game with a concussion and coach Andy Reid acknowledged it was “pretty significant” when he met with reporters today, according to Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News. That puts rookie Nick Foles, who replaced Vick against the Cowboys, in position to start at FedEx Field.

“Michael's our quarterback, but I have confidence in Nick,” Reid said.

If Foles provides any kind of spark to the struggling Eagles, you have to believe he’ll quickly be named the team’s quarterback.
