PHILADELPHIA -- Nick Foles will be back at quarterback for the Eagles when they play the Raiders on Sunday. cheap nfl jerseys . 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 Tuesdays 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 hadnt 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. "Thats one of the good things about practicing Tuesday is that you can kind of get a chance to get your eyes on people who have been out," Kelly said. "Nick is going to be our starter this week and hell take the reps with the ones." Foles, a third-round pick in 2011 out of the University of Arizona, suffered the concussion in the second half of a 17-3 loss to the Dallas Cowboys Oct. 20. He started that game in place of Vick, who was out with his first hamstring injury. Vick, who missed two games, returned last week and started in a 15-7 loss to the New York Giants, but re-injured the hamstring and left in the first half. Barkley has relieved Foles, against Dallas, and Vick, against New York. "Mikes hamstring is the same as it was," Kelly said. "We dont see him being able to go this week." Foles has appeared in five games this season, two as a starter, and has completed 52 of 90 passes for 622 yards with six touchdowns. He has not thrown an interception, and has a 101.3 rating. Foles came off the bench for Vick in a win over the Giants at the Meadowlands, and threw for 197 yards and two touchdowns in a 36-21 win. A week later, he started and completed 22 of 31 passes for 296 yards and three touchdowns in a 31-20 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers that earned him NFC Offensive Player of the Week honours. In his most recent start against Dallas, though, he suffered through a miserable 11-for-29, 80-yard effort before the concussion knocked him out of the game. "I just did not play well," Foles said. "Theres no reason. I just did not play well. Its going to make be better. Im going to get better because of it." In his rookie year, Foles started six games in place of an injured Vick and played to a rating of 79.1. He completed 161 of 265 passes for 1,699 yards with six touchdowns and five interceptions. "I feel very confident," Foles said. "Same confidence I had after the Tampa Bay game. You feel emotions, you are human. You play bad, you let everyone down." Kelly has that same confidence in his quarterback. "Thats one of the things I love about Nick, theres resiliency to him," Kelly said. "I know Nick didnt play well in the Dallas game. He understands that. Nick wasnt the only one who didnt play well against Dallas. "Ive seen Nick play well. Ive got a ton of confidence in Nick." wholesale jerseys . 5 Trade Deadline isnt that far away and teams will be making decisions on whether to buy, sell and decide which players can make the biggest difference and hold the greatest value. wholesale nfl jerseys .3 seconds to play and the Houston Rockets escaped with 115-112 victory over the Phoenix Suns on Sunday night. WASHINGTON -- Ryan Zimmermans return may have been the spark the Washington Nationals offence was waiting for. Zimmerman certainly made a difference Tuesday night. The Nationals all-star third baseman hit a run-scoring double in his return from the disabled list to spark a six-run seventh-inning as Washington beat the St. Louis Cardinals 8-6. "It was just fun to be part of a game again," Zimmerman said. "Thats the biggest part. It was a great game, a good win, and hopefully we can continue on with that." Zimmerman had missed 58 games because of an injured abdominal muscle which required surgery in early May. He was given ovations from the crowd in pre-game introductions and for each of his at-bats, with the loudest cheers coming after his double down the right-field line drove in the Nationals first run of the seventh. "This is his team," said Jayson Werth, who had an RBI single in the seventh to cap the rally. "Hes an icon of the franchise. Hes the guy, so any time youre missing a presence like that, its definitely good to get him back." The six-run inning matched the Nationals best this season, and none were wilder than this. Washingtons last four runs in the inning scored with two outs. The tying run scored on a wild pitch and the Nationals took the lead on a bases-loaded walk. They extended their winning streak to four games, also tying their season best. "Thats a crazy game right there," said Nationals closer Drew Storen, who pitched the ninth for his 16th save in 17 chances. Albert Pujols and Lance Berkman hit home runs for St. Louis, which has lost a season-high four straight games. Miguel Batista (3-2) of the Cardinals relieved starter Jaime Garcia to start the seventh with St. Louis holding a 6-2 lead. After Zimmermans double, Michael Morse had an RBI groundout for the second out. Danny Espinosa then scored Zimmerman on a single. "I cant even remember all the at-bats, there were so many good at-bats," Nationals manager Jim Riggleman said. "We got a couple breaks, a couple hits that werent really squared up that well -- iit was a lot of great at-bats" Reliever Trever Miller came on and hit Roger Bernadina, loading the bases, and then threw a wild pitch to pinch-hitter Ivan Rodriguez, allowing the tying run to score. cheap jerseys. After an intentional walk to Rodriguez, reliever Jason Motte came on and walked pinch-hitter Laynce Nix on the 11th pitch of the at-bat to give the Nationals their first lead of the game, 7-6. "It was just a nightmare of a seventh inning," Cardinals manager Tony La Russa said. Henry Rodriguez (2-1) pitched the seventh inning to earn the win. The Cardinals took advantage of a defensive miscue to score three runs in the fifth and take a 6-1 lead. An intentional walk to Pujols with one out loaded the bases for Berkman, who hit what appeared to be a double-play grounder to shortstop Ian Desmond. However, Desmonds flip to Espinosa caught the second baseman in an awkward position, and the throw to first was too late to get Berkman. The reprieve led to two more St. Louis runs as Yadier Molina and Andrew Brown hit run-scoring singles before the Nationals got out of the inning. Pujols hit a two-run homer in the first -- his 15th of the year -- and Berkman hit his 17th in the fourth.
