Matt Barkley takes over at QB for Eagles, Nick Foles out
Matt Barkley stepped in at quarterback for the Eagles after Nick Foles left with a "head injury."
When Michael Vick was ruled inactive before Sunday's Week 6 game against the Cowboys, it was notable that Nick Foles' only "real" backup was Matt Barkley. Now that Foles has been ruled out with a head injury, it's really notable.
The second drive wasn't much better, with Barkley eventually getting picked by Barry Church as well.
Overall, Barkley went 5-for-11 on the first two drives, throwing for 53 yards and a pair of picks.
He's got to stay healthy too, because if he goes down, the Eagles emergency quarterback is tight end James Casey.
Depending on the severity of Foles injury, the door is absolutely open for Michael Vick to return as starter in Philadelphia.
