Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick
Foles has been cleared for contact following a concussion and returned to the
field on Tuesday.
Foles left a 17-3 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Oct. 20 after three quarters
with a head injury. In his second straight start for an injured Michael Vick,
he connected on just 11-of-29 passes for 80 yards before exiting.
"It was tough to watch," said Foles after practice, "I have to take it to
heart and take ownership and get out here and work on those things. I'm
motivated to get better."
It was the second concussion of the young signal-caller's career, after going
through a similar process as a freshman at Arizona.
Rookie quarterback Matt Barkley completed 11-of-20 passes for 129 yards and
three interceptions in relief, then finished 17-of-26 for 158 yards and one
pick in this past Sunday's 15-7 loss to the Giants.
Eagles head coach Chip Kelly has not named a starter for this week's contest
