The Philadelphia Eagles will likely to play the Raiders Sunday without quarterback Michael Vick.
Eagles coach Chip Kelly told local reporters that he doesn’t expect Vick to play at Oakland Coliseum after aggravating a hamstring injury in a 15-7 loss to the New York Giants on Sunday.
Vick had an MRI on the injury site, and the results weren’t immediately known.
“I’ve never had a hamstring injury this bad,” Vick said after Sunday’s game.
Vick played four series before bowing out. Rookie Matt Barkley relieved an ailing starter for the second straight week and struggled yet again. In two appearances, Barkley has completed 28-of-46 passes for 287 yards, with four interceptions, a lost fumble and no touchdowns.
Backup Nick Foles was concussed during an Oct. 20 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, and his playing status remains uncertain. He’s taken an NFL-mandated concussion test and could be cleared for duty by Sunday. The Raiders will be prepared for any quarterback that plays Sunday.
"The good news is we’ve seen all three of those quarterbacks play, so we’ve kind of got a feel for what they’re going to do with each quarterback," Raiders coach Dennis Allen said. "We’ve seen what some of their strengths are and some of the vulnerabilities of each one of those guys are. We’ll have to look at it and kind of monitor that situation as we go along. Schematically, I don’t think that they’ll be a whole lot different based on who the quarterback is."
