Eagles bucking healthy quarterback trend

Healthy now.
The NFL Health and Safety department delivered an update about the safety of quarterbacks.

This season, 24 of 32 NFL teams (75 percent) started the same quarterback in every game. It's the most at this point of any season since at least 1970.

Obviously the Eagles are among the eight that haven't gone the distance with their starting quarterback due to injury. Ironically it's an Eagles quarterback, Michael Vick, who suffered one of those concussions the league is trying to eliminate.

The other teams that have had to go to another quarterback due to injury this season are the Cardinals, 49ers, Chiefs, Steelers, Bears, Titans, Jaguars.
