PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Nick Foles will be back at quarterback for the Eagles when they play the Raiders on Sunday.
Two weeks after suffering a concussion, Foles will start in place of Michael Vick, who is out for the second time this season with a hamstring injury. Rookie Matt Barkley will be Foles' backup vs. Oakland (3-4).
Eagles coach Chip Kelly made the announcement Wednesday after watching Foles take part in Tuesday's practice.
''Nick did really well,'' Kelly said. ''I know he was cleared, but just because he was cleared, we (still) really needed to see him. I hadn't really had a chance to visit with him, so to get to watch him on the field, I was really happy with the way Nick practiced.''
Philadelphia (3-5) is still just one game out of first place in the NFC East.
