PHILADELPHIA – After Nick Foles sustained a head injury against the Dallas Cowboys, rookie quarterback Matt Barkley made a less than memorable NFL debut.

The all-time leading passer in Pac-12 history with 12,327 yards. Barkley was once considered one of the top overall prospects as he threw for 116 touchdowns from 2009-12 before suffered a shoulder injury against UCLA his senior year, causing his draft stock to plummet.

Foles, who started in place of the incumbent Michael Vick, suffered a head injury at the end of the third quarter on a sideline tackle by Cowboys defensive ends George Selvie and Jarius Wynn, is reportedly undergoing the required NFL tests for head trauma with his return questionable.

Barkley, a fourth-round pick and 98th player taken in the 2013 NFL Draft out of USC, completed his first NFL pass to Jason Avant for six yards and complete 3-of-5 pass for 29 yards before being intercepted by Dallas linebacker Sean Lee in his first series as a pro.
