According to a report, Eagles QB Mike Vick will miss the rest of the season due to his concussion.

Vick suffered the concussion in the first quarter of Sunday’s loss and did not return.

Rookie Nick Foles came in relief with a promising drives, but ultimately had too many costly turnovers.

The Yahoo! report cites an unnamed source saying the Eagles will “rest” Vick for the remainder of the season. Reid will insert Foles as his QB and try to use his promise as a “springboard” to save his job.

“I’m 99 percent sure that’s exactly what you’re going to see happen,” a source told Jason Cole on Monday.

“Andy is going to go to [owner] Jeff [Lurie] and [general manager] Howie [Roseman] and say, ‘Let’s go with Foles and make the transition to the next era.’ ”

Eagles fans have been clamoring for Foles to replace Vick due to poor performance and now with a concussed Vick, great play from Foles will almost certainly have him starting the remainder of the season.

Although Reid has been adamant that Vick, when healthy, is his starting quarterback, the source told Cole that this will allow Reid to remove Vick without “losing the locker room” and transition into a more pocket passing quarterback.

Foles entered the game with a standing ovation from the fans, who grew even louder when he threw his first NFL touchdown to Jeremy Maclin.

These developments all but signal the end for Vick in an Eagles uniform.
