The quarterback situation in Philadelphia seems to be a hot subject for new reasons than in years past. With Kevin Kolb suffering a concussion on Sunday and Michael Vick leading the Eagles back into contention against Green Bay, there seems to be somewhat of a quarterback controversy brewing.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter suggests that Michael Vick will likely start for the Eagles this weekend against Detroit.
“Kolb will not practice until Friday, so it’s hard to imagine him starting Sunday. For starters, the Eagles will spend Wednesday and Thursday installing the game plan, and teams want their quarterbacks to be a part of it. But more significantly, concussion guidelines dictate that anyone who suffers one usually needs to rest one week from the time he is fully asymptomatic. Kolb complained of not feeling right on Monday, so that means he might not be able to play until Monday at the earliest, if the Eagles are going by the rules. And something tells me they’re going to be very careful with how they use their players and start Vick at quarterback in the next game.”
Thankfully for Vick, he will be playing against the Lions who gave up nearly 500 yards of total offense against the Bears last weekend. This could be a chance for him to fuel the controversy and even cement himself as the teams best option at the position.
