Jason Avant out, was Eagles' emergency QB

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Jason Avant is officially out for the game against the Dallas Cowboys after injuring his hamstring on Sunday evening. Avant is the team's emergency quarterback, and Michael Vick is already done for the day after suffering a concussion in the second quarter.

Nick Foles came in to replace Vick, and the Eagles would have no option at quarterback should Foles go down. Trent Edwards is on the roster, but is inactive against the Cowboys.

Avant had just one catch and was tackled behind the line of scrimmage on Sunday. For the year he has 26 catches for 284 yards. The seventh-year veteran has never thrown a pass in the NFL.

Foles has come in throw a go-ahead 44-yard touchdown pass to Jeremy Maclin in the third quarter. The Eagles now lead 14-10, but could be in big trouble if something were to happen to Foles. Philadelphia has to hope the rookie can stay healthy and do enough to lead them to victory.

The Dallas Cowboys lead the Philadelphia Eagles, 10-7, at halftime in Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday. The Eagles drew first blood, but the Cowboys have answered with 10-straight points to grab the lead.

Michael Vick connected with Riley Cooper on a 2-yard touchdown to get Philadelphia on the board with 9:57 left in the first quarter. That capped a 10-play, 81-yard drive that took more than five minutes off the clock.

The Cowboys tied the game when Felix Jones caught an 11-yard scoring strike from Tony Romo on the ensuing possession. That drive took even longer than Philadelphia's, as it consumed almost eight minutes of the clock.

Vick was lost for the day when his head hit the turf in the second quarter. The Eagles have announced that the quarterback has a concussion. Nick Foles replaced Vick to run the offense for Philadelphia.

Dallas took the lead on a 30-yard field goal with 3:54 to go in the second quarter.
