Michael Vick will start for the Philadelphia Eagles in their preseason opener against New England on Friday night because coach Chip Kelly says it's his turn to go first in the quarterback rotation.

Nick Foles also will take snaps with the starters, and Kelly says the second-year pro will start the second preseason game. Both Vick and Foles are expected to get between 12 and 20 snaps vs. the Patriots.

The two QBs have been competing for the No. 1 job since Kelly's arrival in Philadelphia. Rookie Matt Barkley will come in after Vick and Foles.

Kelly made the announcement Thursday, saying it had nothing to do with evaluations or performance in training camp so far.
