Nick Foles completed 35-of-48 passes for 334 yards and a touchdown in the Eagles' Week 2 loss at Tampa Bay.
Foles' efficiency looks decent on paper, but he gripped the ball too long in the pocket, took six sacks, and needed an entire half to get the offense moving against a bad defense. Foles remains a high-end NFL backup, but he's obviously a severe downgrade from Carson Wentz. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Sunday that Wentz will have a real chance to return for Week 3 against the Colts. Sep 16 - 4:48 PM

Date:

Coach Doug Pederson confirmed Nick Foles will start Week 2 against the Bucs.

Not a surprise at all, as Carson Wentz (knee) still has yet to be cleared for contact. Foles was dreadful in the opener, going 19-of-34 for a measly 117 yards and an interceptions, but the Eagles still escaped with a win. This is a good on-paper matchup, but Foles can't be trusted as more than a QB2.

Eagles will announce their Week 2 starter at quarterback on Wednesday.

OC Mike Groh said the team has already made their decision, and most reporters expect Nick Foles to once again get the nod. Foles struggled in the opener, throwing for just 117 yards while completing 56 percent of his throws, but he gets an easier matchup this week in Tampa Bay.
Sep 11 - 12:34 PM

Nick Foles completed 19-of-34 passes for 117 yards, zero touchdowns and an interception in the Eagles' 18-12, Week 1 win over the Falcons.

Foles fumbled, but the Eagles recovered. He also caught a 15-yard pass in a sequel to the Super Bowl's "Philly Special." Beyond that, Foles was completely unwatchable, but the Eagles somehow eked out a victory. Foles had no one to throw to but undershot a few deep balls. His interception was a late pass Dallas Goedert couldn't hold onto as he was immediately hit. Foles looked disturbingly similar to the pumpkin he was down the stretch last season before suddenly morphing into Steve Young for the NFC Championship Game and Super Bowl. With Carson Wentz (knee) looking unlikely to be cleared for Week 2, Foles will have an easier matchup in the Bucs.
Sep 7 - 12:28 AM

Eagles coach Doug Pederson confirmed Nick Foles will start the season opener.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported as much on Saturday, but the Eagles resisted making it official until now. Recovering from an ACL injury, Carson Wentz has yet to be cleared for contact, making it possible Foles starts multiple games. Coming off a dreadful preseason, Foles will not be a recommended streaming option against the Falcons on Thursday night.
Sep 3 - 11:40 AM

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports Nick Foles will be the Eagles' starting quarterback for Thursday's opener against the Falcons.

Reports had begun to surface that Carson Wentz would be ready, but he's simply not far enough along in his rehab. Foles has yet to be cleared for contract. The situation appears to be genuinely week to week. Foles had a concerningly bad preseason, though the Eagles rarely had their entire first-team offense on the field at the same time. Missing Alshon Jeffery, Foles will be a mid-range QB2 in what could be a high-scoring contest.
Sep 1 - 3:57 PM

Nick Foles completed 13-of-17 passes for 127 yards, zero touchdowns and two interceptions in Thursday's preseason game against the Browns.

Foles also lost a fumble and took a safety in a truly disastrous performance. Foles was playing with mostly second- and third-stringers in the skill corps but each of his interceptions were completely inexcusable decisions, one a dead-duck deep ball, the other a line drive right into Jamie Collins' gut near the goal line. Foles has now led 10 offensive possessions this summer without generating any points. Foles was similarly dreadful down the stretch in 2017 before turning into Joe Montana during the postseason. Despite Foles' playoff heroics, the Eagles will be in real trouble if Carson Wentz (knee) is not cleared for Week 1.
Aug 23 - 10:01 PM

Coach Doug Pederson said Nick Foles (shoulder) will play "about a half" during Thursday's preseason game versus the Browns.

Foles exited last week's game early with a strained shoulder but will suit up with the starters Thursday for an entire half. LT Jason Peters and RB Darren Sproles have officially been ruled out. With Jay Ajayi nursing a lower body injury, Wendell Smallwood and Matt Jones are expected to be the only active running backs against the Browns. Either way, this is terrific news for Foles as he appears ready to go for Week 1 if Carson Wentz (knee) is held out.
Aug 21 - 11:27 AM

Nick Foles (shoulder) will return to practice on Sunday.

Foles had an injury scare Thursday night against New England, but obviously it was nothing serious. He's expected to split reps with Carson Wentz during Sunday's 11-on-11 drills. Both players should be ready for the Eagles' opener on September 6.
Aug 19 - 12:12 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Eagles don't expect Nick Foles (shoulder) to miss extended time.

An MRI confirmed Foles doesn't have any structural damage. He'll likely be held out the rest of the preseason, but there's no concern over his Week 1 status. With Foles and Carson Wentz sidelined, Nate Sudfeld is in line to start the Eagles' third preseason game.
Aug 17 - 5:10 PM

Nick Foles said he was "optimistic" about his shoulder injury.

"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.
