    Head coach Andy Reid is standing by his quarterback Michael Vick despite a three-game losing streak.

    Three people familiar with the decision tell The Associated Press that Michael Vick hasn't been benched by coach Andy Reid.

    The three people spoke Monday night on condition of anonymity because all announcements about the starting lineup come from Reid. The Eagles' headquarters was closed Monday due to Superstorm Sandy, and there was no media availability.

    Vick, the four-time Pro Bowl quarterback, has struggled this season and Philadelphia (3-4) has lost three straight games.

    Reid didn't endorse Vick after Sunday's 30-17 loss to Atlanta, saying he's going to evaluate all his starters. Vick then said he would support whatever decision Reid makes.

    That led to speculation Vick's days were numbered. But Reid is sticking with Vick over unproven rookie Nick Foles as of now.
