PHILADELPHIA -

Michael Vick will start at quarterback on Friday night when the Eagles host the Patriots in their preseason opener. Nick Foles will start next week when Philadelphia takes on Carolina.

Eagles coach Chip Kelly has insisted that performance in training camp had nothing to do with the decisions. Rather, he says it is simply Vick's turn in the rotation.

Vick and Foles have been splitting reps with the first team offense, and Friday happens to be Vick's turn.

Kick-off between the Birds and Pats is scheduled for 7:30 Friday night at Lincoln Financial Field.
