"It just sort of got jarred in a funny way as I was following through, but you know it feels good and we’ll check it out more thoroughly." Foles said. He's expected to undergo tests Friday. The Eagles are understandably being overcautious and will likely return with good news on his status Friday. Aug 17 - 9:20 AM

Nick Foles (shoulder) will undergo tests on Friday.

Speaking Thursday night, Foles said he was feeling good, but the Eagles have decided the issue merits a closer look. More than likely, the tests will bring back good news.
Aug 17 - 1:16 AM

Nick Foles was forced from Thursday's preseason game against the Patriots with a strained throwing shoulder.

Foles was injured by an awkward hit on an Adrian Clayborn strip sack. Foles immediately went down grabbing his right side. With many of the Eagles' regulars sitting out, Foles looked nothing like his Super Bowl self before going down, completing 3-of-9 passes for 44 yards. He was sacked twice. Were neither Foles nor Carson Wentz to be ready for Week 1, Nate Sudfeld is the Eagles' No. 3 quarterback.
Aug 16 - 8:38 PM

Eagles coach Doug Pederson said Nick Foles (neck) will play in the second preseason game.

Foles sat out some time with spasms in his traps and neck, but the injury was never considered serious. With Carson Wentz (knee) a question for Week 1, Foles could open the season as the starter.
Aug 14 - 11:35 AM

Nick Foles (neck) will return to practice Saturday.

HC Doug Pederson said Foles will practice strictly on a limited basis. Although he appears to be recovering from muscle spasms that have sidelined him the past week, it seems wise for the club to give Nate Sudfeld another extended outing in their next preseason game. Carson Wentz (knee) wore pads Saturday but still remains out.
Aug 11 - 10:10 AM

Nick Foles said he is dealing with muscle spasms in his traps and neck.

Foles has missed the last three practices and is not expected to participate in the preseason opener. He says he is fine, however, and should be back on the field soon. With Carson Wentz (knee) also out, Nate Sudfeld should play the majority of the snaps in the first preseason game.
Aug 7 - 12:03 PM

Nick Foles (upper body soreness) did not practice Tuesday.

It is his third missed practice in a row and all but guarantees he will not be ready for the preseason opener. With Carson Wentz (knee) also out, Nate Sudfeld should play the majority of the snaps. Foles is expected to be back well before Week 1.
Aug 7 - 10:20 AM's Mike Silver reports the Browns offered the Eagles the No. 35 overall pick for Nick Foles before eventually trading for Tyrod Taylor.

Per Silver, the Eagles consulted Foles, who said he wished to remain in Philadelphia. The sides later reached a reworked contract that gave Foles 2018 incentives and the option to leave in 2019. It's nice to see a team do right by a player, but the Eagles should have sold high on their Super Bowl hero. As it is, he's excellent quarterback insurance as Carson Wentz completes his recovery from a torn ACL.
May 22 - 6:51 PM

Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports the Eagles have reached an agreement with QB Nick Foles on a revised contract.

The deal includes a mutual option for 2019, so it's possible Foles could still hit the market as a free agent next offseason. He'll also receive a $2 million signing bonus. The Eagles are sweetening Foles' deal as a way of repaying him for leading the team to its first Super Bowl last year. He'll be back as Carson Wentz's backup in 2018.
Apr 20 - 4:27 PM

Eagles coach Doug Pederson believes it's "safe to say" the team is keeping Nick Foles for 2018.

With Carson Wentz rehabbing a torn ACL, the Eagles set a high price for Foles. It appears no one came close to matching it. In some ways it's a waste — Foles will never have more trade value — but it ultimately makes sense. Teams are not going to overpay for 3-4 starts, while the Eagles have incentive to keep Foles as Wentz insurance.
Mar 27 - 2:39 PM

Eagles coach Doug Pederson said the team hasn't fielded any serious offers for Nick Foles.

"It had to be the right deal for us to do that," said Pederson during an appearance on NFL Network. "But there wasn't anything coming down our way for Nick." ESPN's Chris Mortensen previously reported that the Eagles were seeking greater compensation for Foles than they did for Sam Bradford when he was traded for first and fourth-rounders in 2016. Unless they're a blown away by an offer, it appears the Eagles will stand pat with Foles as the No. 2 to Carson Wentz. The reigning Super Bowl MVP will earn a modest $4 million in 2018.
Mar 25 - 10:02 AM

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports the Eagles are seeking more than the first- and fourth-round picks they received for Sam Bradford in Nick Foles trade talks.

That's apparently been the Eagles' "basic answer" in talks. Per Mort, the Eagles are fielding inquiries, but have not "solicited" any. With Carson Wentz recovering from a torn ACL, the Eagles have incentive to be patient with their Super Bowl-winning backup, though his value should be at an all-time high before the draft before steadily declining thereafter. Getting a first-round pick probably isn't the most likely outcome.
Mar 5 - 1:31 PM

Geoff Mosher of FanRag Sports reports the Eagles have already been offered a second-round pick for Nick Foles.

That is almost certainly not enough to get a deal done, but it does confirm other teams are making inquiries about the Super Bowl MVP. MMQB's Peter King reported the Eagles are "confident" Carson Wentz will be ready for Week 1, opening the door for them to trade Foles, but he added they value Foles more highly than Sam Bradford, who fetched a first and a fourth prior to the 2016 season. If this mystery team really wants Foles, they will need to up their offer.
Mar 5 - 12:12 PM

Nick Foles earned game MVP as the Eagles upset the Patriots 41-33 in Super Bowl 52.

Foles built on his stunning NFC title game by staying in attack mode on downfield throws, scoring the Eagles’ first touchdown on a 34-yard first-quarter bomb to Alshon Jeffery and threading a needle to Corey Clement in the third quarter from 22 yards out. Foles also caught a touchdown on a fourth-and-goal trick-play pass from Trey Burton, and threw his third TD to Zach Ertz from 11 yards out in the fourth quarter, which proved the game winner. Foles inherited the Eagles’ quarterback job after Carson Wentz’s ACL tear and engineered a 5-1 finish. In a quarterback-needy NFL, the Eagles may receive offseason trade inquiries for Foles, who is due $7 million in salary and bonuses for 2018. Ideally, Philly would keep Foles as insurance for Wentz’s knee.
Feb 4 - 10:24 PM

Nick Foles underwent "precautionary" X-rays on his ribs following Sunday's NFC Championship game win.

Per ESPN's Sal Paolantonio, Foles' injury "doesn't appear serious," and the X-rays truly appear precautionary. Foles likely experienced routine soreness following Sunday's stunning blowout, although it wasn't for a lack of pass protection. The Eagles held the Vikings' vaunted pass rush to just five QB hits and one sack in the 38-7 rout. "I'm good, I'm good," Foles assured after the tests.
