PHILADELPHIA -- Fresh off an inauspicious debut, Matt Barkley could start his first NFL game for the Philadelphia Eagles because hes the only healthy quarterback on the roster. Tim Brown Womens Jersey . Filling in for the injured Nick Foles, Barkley threw three interceptions in the fourth quarter of Sundays 17-3 loss to Dallas. With Michael Vick still recovering from a hamstring injury that forced him to miss the last 2 1/2 games, its uncertain wholl be under centre against the New York Giants this week. "My decision on who our quarterback is, is based on health," coach Chip Kelly said Monday. "Right now I dont know who is healthy and who is not healthy. Until we find out who is healthy, it doesnt help anybody to say that guy our starter. It doesnt help the situation because I dont know when theyre all coming back. Our focus is to play the New York Giants this week. "What is the best way to get us to beat the Giants, depending on who is the healthy quarterback this week." Foles sustained a concussion when he was sacked by George Selvie and Jarius Wynn on the final play of the third quarter. Before that play, he struggled, completing just 11 of 29 for 80 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions. Foles was coming off an impressive performance in a win at Tampa Bay that earned him NFC Player of the Week honours. He also played well after replacing Vick late in the second quarter of a win at the Giants on Oct. 6. His sparked a quarterback controversy in Philadelphia. Kellys reluctance to commit to giving Vick his starting job when he returned only fueled the talk. Now, its pretty clear Vick will start when hes ready. "I think he was off a little bit," Kelly said of Foles. "His feet werent set on a couple of those throws, and in all instances, we have to do a little better job. There were times when guys were open that we didnt get the ball on him. There were other times when we didnt get off of coverage, and there was a couple of times that we gave up too much leakage pressure, so hes not being able to set his feet." It was the most important start in Foles young career. First place in the NFC East was at stake when the Eagles (3-4) played the Cowboys (4-3). Perhaps the pressure was too much for the second-year pro? "No, I dont think it had anything (to do with it)," Kelly said. "Thats my feeling, but I havent spoken to him about it, but Nick never struck me as the guy that the moment kind of catches him. He came off the bench against the Giants without taking a snap, and led us on a drive right at the end in two-minute (offence) to get a field goal in a critical situation. I saw him play in college, and I dont think any time in college did I ever see Nick get overwhelmed by the moment or whatnot." As for Barkley, he entered in a tough spot. The Eagles were trailing by two touchdowns in the fourth quarter so the defence knew Barkley would be passing every down. "Difficult situation for him to come in," Kelly said. "Im sure hed want those throws back." Vick was inactive against the Cowboys after dressing as the third-string quarterback at Tampa. Tight end James Casey, who couldnt play against the Buccaneers, returned and filled the emergency QB role vs. Dallas. Vicks hamstring injury is more severe than he originally thought, but its possible he could return this week. "Mike did work out before the game and said he feels like hes moving in the right direction," Kelly said. "So it will be interesting to see where he is from the standpoint of coming in and running around a little bit (Tuesday) morning in terms of warm-up with the strength and conditioning staff and how that goes."

Jim Otto Raiders Jersey . -- Derek Jeter says the New York Yankees have no choice but to move forward now that Alex Rodriguez has accepted his suspension for the 2014 season.The Indiana Pacers remain on top of the TSN.ca NBA Power Rankings, ahead of the usual suspects, the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs. With eight wins in the past nine games, the Pacers have displayed their outstanding defence, allowing 82 or fewer points in five of those eight wins. Its been a while since the last update (due in part to holidays and technical issues with a location move), so there have been some dramatic moves, highlighted by the Toronto Raptors vaulting from 28 all the way up to 10. That the Raptors have gone 10-5 in the past 15 games, with entirely respectable losses at Miami and Indiana most recently, is one thing, but the softness of the teams below the top tier is what makes it possible for such a huge move up the list. Suddenly, though, a season that had talk about lottery picks and Andrew Wiggins iis steering in the direction of a playoff spot, and possibly homecourt advantage in the first round.

Other teams moving up include the New Orleans Pelicans, with a healthy Anthony Davis, going from 16 to 11 and, also getting healthier, the Washington Wizards are up from 17 to 12. The Sacramento Kings, with solid play from small forward Rudy Gay move from 26 to 20. Heading the other direction, the Los Angeles Clippers drop from six to 13, due largely to Chris Pauls shoulder injury. The Detroit Pistons have lost seven of eight and fall from 15 to 22; the injury-ravaged Los Angeles Lakers have lost eight of nine games and sink from 18 to 23 while the Orlando Magic have lost seven of nine, as well as starting centre Nikola Vucevic, and land at 29, from 19 in the previous update.
