Philadelphia, PA ( - Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick will likely return to the starting lineup Sunday against the New York Giants.

Vick suffered a hamstring strain against the Giants on Oct. 6 and missed the past two games. He took the first-team reps at practice on Tuesday, but his status will likely be evaluated as the week goes along.

Eagles coach Chip Kelly has stated that the health of his quarterbacks would weigh heavily in his decision for the starting role.

Nick Foles replaced Vick as the starter the past two games, but suffered a concussion in Sunday's 17-3 loss to the Cowboys and must pass the mandatory concussion protocol in order to play.

Matt Barkley took over for Foles against Dallas and threw a trio of interceptions. The rookie would be the starter Sunday if Foles and Vick are unable to play.

Vick has thrown for 1,185 yards and has completed 53.8 percent of his passes with five touchdowns and two interceptions.

The Eagles' ground attack will get a boost if Vick plays. The 11-year veteran rushed for 307 yards and two touchdowns on 33 carries before his injury.
