The Jaguars have acquired QB Josh Dobbs from the Steelers in exchange for a 5th-round pick. We imagine that Dobbs is coming to back up QB Gardner Minshew, who played well in relief of Nick Foles yesterday, but we'll see what we hear from the team. Dobbs was a 4th-rounder back in 2017 and struggled to a 54.5% completion rate with 0 TDs and 2 INTs this preseason. Meanwhile, Foles will hit IR-designated-to-return after today's surgery to repair his broken collarbone, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The earliest Foles can return is Week 10.
Jaguars QB Nick Foles will undergo surgery on his broken left clavicle on Monday. “We don’t have a time span [for return]," Foles said. “We’re going to take it one day at a time ... I’m going to do everything I can to get back as quickly as I can to where I’m ready to roll.” Pro Football Talk speculates that Foles could be placed on IR-designated-to-return. That'd knock him out until at least Week 10. Rookie QB Gardner Minshew is set to take over as Jacksonville's starter. He played well against the Chiefs on Sunday but is still a downgrade for this entire Jags offense.
Jaguars QB Nick Foles has been diagnosed with a broken left clavicle, according to The Athletic's Phillip Heilman. That figures to knock Foles out until at least October. We should get a more concrete timeline over the next couple of days, but it'll be Gardner Minshew under center in Jacksonville for the foreseeable future. The 6th-round rookie played surprisingly well in relief of Foles vs. the Chiefs, completing 22 of 25 passes for 275 yards, 2 scores and 1 INT.
Jaguars QB Nick Foles appeared to injure his left arm after throwing a TD to WR D.J. Chark in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the Chiefs. He headed back to the locker room with trainers. We'll update Foles' status when we learn more. Gardner Minshew is Jacksonville's backup QB.
Update: Foles is getting an x-ray on his left clavicle.
Update: Foles has been ruled out with what the Jags are calling a left shoulder injury.
The Jaguars have reached a 4-year deal with QB Nick Foles. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports it's a 4-year, $88 million pact with $50.125 million guaranteed. That's obviously a pretty serious commitment. We'll see how long it takes Jacksonville to realize that the 30-year-old Foles isn't really an upgrade over Blake Bortles. Foles is a QB3 for common-sized fantasy football leagues, and he doesn't significantly enhance the outlook for Jacksonville's wideouts. Ian Rapoport reports that the Jags are expected to release Bortles once the Foles deal becomes official.
Eagles QB Nick Foles (ribs) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. The fact that he was out there at all early in the week is a good sign. He's fully expected to start Sunday's game against the Bears.
The Eagles believe QB Nick Foles suffered bruised ribs in Sunday's win over the Redskins and will be OK, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Philly locked up the NFC's #6 seed with the victory, and it sounds like Foles will be available for next weekend's game against the Bears. We'll keep an eye on his status this week.
Eagles QB Nick Foles suffered a chest injury in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game against the Redskins and is officially questionable to return. QB Nate Sudfeld has entered for Philly. We'll update Foles' status when we learn more.
Eagles QB Carson Wentz (back) is out for this weekend’s game against the Texans. Nick Foles gets the start in a plus matchup but is still just a QB2 or cheap DFS play.
Eagles HC Doug Pederson announced on Monday that QB Nick Foles will start this weekend's game against the Texans. Pederson also said that QB Carson Wentz (back) will not go on IR yet. So Philly evidently believes he could return for Week 17 -- or potentially the playoffs. Foles was OK in Sunday night's upset win over the Rams, completing 24 of 31 passes (77.4%) for 270 yards, 0 TDs and 1 INT. He'll be just a lower-end QB2 vs. Houston.
Eagles QB Carson Wentz (back) has been downgraded to out for Sunday night's game against the Rams. Dealing with a stress fracture in his back, Wentz seems unlikely to play again this year. QB Nick Foles gets his 3rd start of the season in Los Angeles. He struggled to a 117-0-1 passing line against the Falcons in the opener and then went for 334-1-0 vs. the Bucs in Week 2 -- a line that's less impressive than it might have seemed at the time considering what the Bucs defense has been this season. Foles is just a low-end QB2 for Week 15.
Eagles QB Carson Wentz (back) is listed as doubtful for Sunday night’s game against the Rams. He did travel with the team to Los Angeles, but it’s fully expected to be Nick Foles under center. That’s a significant downgrade to all of Philly’s skill-position guys.
Eagles QB Carson Wentz has been diagnosed with a fractured vertebra, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. The injury is expected to "fully heal without further expected issues," Schefter adds. The Eagles still haven't ruled Wentz out for the season or even this week, but we'd be surprised if we see him again this year -- especially if the Eagles take another L on Sunday night against the Rams.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Eagles QB Carson Wentz is expected to miss Sunday night's game against the Rams with his back injury. That would return Nick Foles to the starting lineup. An already shaky passing game would still carry some upside against L.A., but neither Foles nor any of his WRs look particularly attractive for season-long lineups. TE Zach Ertz should certainly remain plugged in, though.
Eagles QB Carson Wentz won't practice on Wednesday due to back spasms, HC Doug Pederson said. Pederson only said "we'll see" when asked if Wentz will be ready for Sunday night's game against the Rams. If he can't play, Philly would turn back to QB Nick Foles, who tossed just 1 TD while averaging 5.5 yards per attempt over the season's first 2 weeks.
Eagles QB Carson Wentz (knee) has been medically cleared and will start Sunday's game against the Colts, the team announced Monday. Philly has been extremely cautious bringing Wentz back from last December's torn ACL and LCL in his left knee. He's reportedly been throwing well in practice, but his mobility inside and out of the pocket remains a question. Wentz will be a risk/reward Week 3 fantasy play in a plus matchup. His return is excellent news for the rest of the Eagles' skill-position guys. QB Nick Foles totaled 451 yards with just 1 TD and 1 INT over the first 2 weeks.
Eagles HC Doug Pederson confirmed on Wednesday that QB Nick Foles will start this weekend's game against the Bucs. QB Carson Wentz (knee) reportedly has a shot to return for Week 3. Foles' preseason struggles continued in Week 1, when he completed just 19 of 34 passes for 117 yards, 0 TDs and 1 INT. He can't be trusted in fantasy lineups, despite a plus matchup against Tampa.
There's "optimism" Eagles QB Carson Wentz (knee) will be ready for Week 3 against the Colts, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen. Wentz still hasn't been cleared for contact as far as we know, and we'll be watching his participation in practice this week. QB Nick Foles will get at least 1 more start against the Bucs this weekend. He'll be no more than a low-end QB2, despite that plus matchup.
Eagles QB Carson Wentz (knee) is expected to miss "a few more weeks," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The team continues to be "overly cautious" with its starting QB, Rapoport says, adding that it's possible Wentz is out into October. Philly's bye isn't until Week 9, so he won't get any relief there. We'll continue to monitor his progress, but Wentz owners need to be making backup plans at least through Week 5.
Eagles HC Doug Pederson said Tuesday that QB Carson Wentz (knee) is "close" to being ready. That's obviously not an exact timeline, but it at least sounds like Wentz has a shot to be cleared for Week 2. We'll watch his practice participation next week. QB Nick Foles gets the start in Thursday night's opener against the Falcons.
