Vick back in starting lineup for Eagles

One more start with Eagles for No. 7.

Quarterback Nick Foles played the entire second half Sunday with a broken throwing hand according to Andy Reid.

While Foles' throwing hand looked like a catcher's mitt after the game, it was only a hairline fracture of the second metacarpal bone per Reid. The head coach said the break occurred on the next-to-last play of the first half of the Eagles’ 27-20 loss to the Washington Redskins Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field. Replays showed it was the third-to-last play of the first half when Foles was taken to the ground by Barry Cofield.

“It’s a very slight fracture,” Reid said Monday. “This was something that showed up on the MRI this morning. We X-rayed it after the game. It wasn’t present on the X-ray.”

Reid said it’s likely that veteran Michael Vick would start in the regular season finale Sunday against the New York Giants at the Meadowlands.
