Philadelphia QB Foles ready, willing, should Eagles call on him as Vick works his way back

Nick Foles prepares each week like he's one play away from being the starter. It's no different now that he's taking first-team reps in practice.

After stepping in for an injured Michael Vick and helping lead the Philadelphia Eagles (2-3) to a 36-21 win over the New York Giants, Foles is getting ready to make his seventh career start, if needed, at Tampa Bay (0-4) on Sunday.

"It always feels good getting reps," Foles said. "No matter what day it is out here, whoever I'm running with, I enjoy it, I cherish it. I always want to get better."

Vick threw passes again on Wednesday, but didn't participate in team drills for the second straight day because of a pulled left hamstring. He was injured on a scramble late in the second quarter against the Giants.
