by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com (11/26/13) Eagles quarterback Michael Vick has recovered from a hamstring injury that has kept him out the last three games, but coach Chip Kelly announced Tuesday he's been relegated to a backup role. Kelly named Nick Foles the starting quarterback for the rest of the season Tuesday.
"In all honesty, in all fairness, how can you take a guy out of the game who's been playing so well," Vick said in a local radio interview. Vick said he did not want to be a distraction for the team, and that he understands the situation. An injury to Kevin Kolb in 2010 allowed Vick to step in as the starter.
Foles has tossed 16 touchdowns to no interceptions. Vick is in his final season with the team.

12/06/2013 17:23 Winning Fantasy Calls for Week 14
Which lineup dilemmas are you facing in critical Week 14? Our Dave Richard shares his outlook for every player you may be considering.
Eagles quarterback Michael Vick's career isn't over yet, but being the starter in 2013 is far from guaranteed. He has to compete for the starting job with Nick Foles and possibly rookie Matt Barkley, but we expect Vick to win the job. After being a star in 2010 he has faltered the past two years, and he has to rebuild his on-field reputation again in a new system for coach Chip Kelly. On the surface, Kelly's up-tempo offense suits Vick's style of play, but we have to find out if the two can mesh. Vick also has to deal with the loss of Jeremy Maclin (ACL) and hope DeSean Jackson can return to form. But Vick's problems remain the same: he's injury prone and prone to mistakes. If he starts 16 games we can still see him posting quality stats, but that's no guarantee since he hasn't finished a full season since 2006. He enters this season as a No. 2 Fantasy quarterback, and he's worth drafting with a late-round pick. If you have reasonable expectations for Vick then he'll be a good selection on Draft Day. But if you go in expecting Vick to play like 2010 again then you can expect to be disappointed because it's unlikely that quarterback will ever be seen again. (Updated 7/28/13)
