Nick Foles (shoulder) is practicing.
Foles' shoulder injury suffered in Thursday's preseason game versus New England was indeed very minor, as he's back on the practice field for the Eagles. Carson Wentz is progressing to 11-on-11 work, but he's going to be a close call for Week 1 in less than three weeks. Foles is going to start this week's preseason dress rehearsal game versus the Browns, and there's a chance he's under-center against Atlanta on September 6.
Nick Foles' shoulder injury is minor, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Rapoport says it's minor and not to expect "any prolonged recovery." So it sounds like Foles could potentially miss next week's critical third preseason game, but thankfully it's not a serious injury that would require surgery. If Foles is unable to play next week, Nate Sudfeld would draw the start, which would be valuable experience for him in case he's the backup quarterback in the event Carson Wentz, who is expected to advance to 11-on-11 in practice next week, is not ready to start the season. It doesn't sound like Foles is in jeopardy for Week 1, so he might draw the start to open the year against Atlanta if Wentz isn't 100%.
Update: Nick Foles' injury is being called a shoulder strain.
Foles still has his shoulder pads on and is on the sideline, which is a very positive sign considering he didn't go into the locker room for further testing. Despite being called questionable, the Super Bowl LII MVP is not going to return to tonight's game, but he's likely to start next week's third preseason game against the Browns.
Nick Foles leaves preseason game with apparent right arm injury.
Foles was attempting to take a deep shot in the second quarter against the Patriots, but he had his arm hit as he was trying to throw, and it turned into a fumble that was returned for a touchdown. Foles immediately grabbed around his shoulder/bicep area and was in obvious pain, and he went into the medical tent to be evaluated. Hopefully the injury isn't too serious, but we'll keep you updated when more information becomes available.
The Eagles and Nick Foles have agreed to a revised contract with a mutual option for 2019, according to Mike Garafolo.
Foles was set to become a free agent after the 2018 season, but this new deal gives him a pay raise while still giving him a chance to either 1) stay in Philadelphia for two more years if Carson Wentz gets injured again or 2) hit free agency after this season if he chooses. Also, this could wind up basically being a ploy to get quarterback-needy teams to offer more in a trade for the SB-winning quarterback, as it has the appearance of being serious about keeping Foles for at least 2018. A trade shouldn't be ruled out based on the new deal, but the Eagles would be wise to hold out for anything less than a premium first-round pick or multiple high draft picks.
Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said that it's "safe to say" Nick Foles will be with the team to start the 2018 season.
A coach's words in March don't necessarily mean much, but it's always been difficult to imagine Philadelphia trading the Super Bowl LII MVP for anything less than a premium draft pick or multiple draft picks, especially with Carson Wentz coming off a torn ACL. An injury elsewhere in the league could change things, but it would be a surprise if Foles wasn't back with the Eagles in 2018.
Multiple teams have made trade offers for Nick Foles, according to Chris Mortensen.
Mortensen says the Eagles "basic answer" is it's going to take more than what they got for Sam Bradford from the Vikings just before the 2016 season (a first and a fourth), which isn't surprising after Foles just led the team to its first Super Bowl in franchise history and won the game's MVP. If more than one team did indeed make an offer, with the Eagles saying it will take more than what they got for Bradford, it indicates they are willing to move him. We would not trade Foles if it didn't include at least a top-15 pick in the draft, as he has already shown he can get it done and win the team a championship, and the Eagles already have a really strong roster that doesn't need to add positions. Backup quarterback is one of the most underrated and important positions in the NFL, and the Eagles have the best one in the league.
Nick Foles wins Super Bowl MVP as he leads the Eagles to their first Super Bowl victory in franchise history.
Foles continued his amazing play in Super Bowl LII, showing no nerves whatsoever against the Patriots en route to the game's MVP honors. Foles was 28/43 for 373 yards, three passing touchdowns, and one interception, and he also added a one-yard touchdown reception on a trick play on fourth-and-goal late in the first half on what was one of the plays of the game. The interception was on a pass that went of Alshon Jeffery's arms and deflected right to Patriots safety Duron Harmon. Foles' first touchdown was to Alshon Jeffery on a 34-yard touchdown where he made a very nice throw to the end zone and gave his big receiver a chance to make a play—something Foles does a good job of. He then threw a 22-yard touchdown to Corey Clement on an absolute dime in the end zone into tight coverage, and then the go-ahead score to Zach Ertz on a slant route with 2:21 to go in the game. Foles played with ice in his veins throughout the entire postseason, but it wasn't just a lucky streak—throughout his career, Foles has shown he can play quarterback at a high level. While we know he can get it done on what is a very good team, there won't be a quarterback controversy in Philadelphia, and the question becomes whether the Eagles decide to trade him if a team makes an enticing offer this offseason. No matter what happens, Foles will always be a legend for the Eagles after helping lead the team to its first Super Bowl win.
Nick Foles lights up the Vikings to help send the Eagles to Super Bowl LII.
Minnesota has the league's best defense, but they played their worst game of the season against Philadelphia; but Foles deserves a ton of credit for playing a truly outstanding game, playing with poise while throwing accurate passes all over the field from short to deep. Foles was 26/33 for 352 yards and three touchdowns in the victory, hitting huge plays and four passes over 36 yards throughout the game. Two of Foles' touchdowns were to Alshon Jeffery, with one coming on a 53-yarder where Jeffery got behind Vikings cornerback Terrance Newman and Foles stood in the pocket and made a Ben Roethlisberger-esque throw. The other touchdown was on an absolute dime to Torrey Smith for 41 yards. Doug Pederson and the coaching staff are doing an excellent job with their game plans, and Foles is playing great football. He should be confident heading into Super Bowl LII against the Patriots.
Nick Foles, Eagles advance to NFC Championship Game with 15-10 win over the Falcons.
Foles was 23/30 for 246 yards, zero touchdowns, and zero interceptions. The 28-year-old kept the ball moving and made no big mistakes for the home-underdog Eagles, and a defensive stand was just enough to send Atlanta home. With a great supporting cast, Foles has more than enough to go all the way for Philly. He will either get the Vikings or Saints next week in the NFC Championship.
Foles struggles in Week 17.
The Eagles starters got limited action against the Cowboys, going 4/11 for 39 yards and an interception. The interception wasn't a good one, as he threw it right into coverage and probably didn't see the corner coming underneath the route—but those plays happen. Foles will need the offensive line to do its job and protect in the playoffs for the Eagles to have a chance.
Nick Foles, Eagles clinch #1 seed in the NFC with 19-10 win over the Raiders on Christmas Night.
Foles was 19/38 for 163 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. Oakland did a nice job containing the Eagles receivers, as Alshon Jeffery was completely shut down by Sean Smith to zero catches, and Nelson Agholor was the only wide receiver with more than one reception. There was also a lot of pressure on Foles, but a late interception helped set them up for the game-winning field goal. Philadelphia doesn't have anything to play for in Week 17 against Dallas, but Foles will probably start to get some momentum heading into the postseason. If so, he'd only be an QB2 because of the risk of a quick day.
Nick Foles tosses four touchdowns in Eagles' victory.
Foles stepped right in for Carson Wentz and played a very good game, helping the Eagles get a win over the Giants and clinch a first-round bye in the NFC playoffs with two weeks to go. Foles was 24/38 for 237 yards and four touchdowns in the win, as he spread the ball around and threw the scores to four different players, especially playing well in the red zone while throwing precise passes to his playmakers. Those that trusted the Eagles offense and Foles were certainly rewarded with playoff championship appearances on the line, and Foles will be a QB1 option against a subpar Oakland defense in Week 16. The teams are totally different than four years ago, the Raiders are the team Foles threw a record-tying seven touchdowns against.
Nick Foles plays well in relief of Carson Wentz.
After Wentz went down with a potentially serious knee injury, Foles stepped in and helped lead the Eagles to a victory over the Rams. Overall, Foles was 6/10 for 42 yards along with a nine-yard rush, but his best play was a perfect throw to Nelson Agholor on a stick-type of route for a first-down, allowing the Eagles to drain more of the clock and give the Rams basically no time to drive for a game-winning field goal. Foles has some streaming appeal while operating one of the league's best offenses, and he'll be one of the better streaming options next week against the Giants.
Nick Foles was a full participant in practice.
Foles battled an elbow issue that kept him out the entire preseason, but he's apparently back to 100% with this full Wednesday practice. He'll be Carson Wentz's backup this season while giving Wentz a veteran presence to lean on as someone that's been the starter in Philadelphia.
The Eagles are signing quarterback Nick Foles to a two-year contract, according to Adam Schefter.
Foles returns to the place where he had some major success and won some games under Chip Kelly. Foles provides the Eagles one of the best backup quarterbacks in the league. Chase Daniel will almost certainly be on the move.
The Chiefs officially declined Nick Foles option, according to Mike Garafolo.
Foles could still return to the Chiefs, but he may look for the opportunity to start if a team will give it to him.
