Eagles head coach Andy Reid confirmed Wednesday that rookie QB Nick Foles will start Friday’s preseason game.

Michael Vick suffered a rib injury in Monday night’s game against the Patriots. Reid said he is not concerned about Vick’s ability to start the season opener.

Third-year QB Mike Kafka is out with a broken non-throwing hand.

On Monday night, Foles completed 18-of-28 passes for 217 yards, two touchdowns and one interception.
