Eagles DE Michael Bennett (foot) is active for today's game against the Saints. He has been playing through "questionable" tags for weeks and is fine for IDP usage. CB Sidney Jones (hamstring) is inactive after entering the day questionable. He wouldn't have been an IDP option anyway. His absence keeps the Philly secondary weakened.

Eagles DE Michael Bennett (foot) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears. Bennett has played through "questionable" tags for weeks and put in a full practice Friday. Expect him to be in the lineup.

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 DE Michael Bennett (foot) and MLB Jordan Hicks (calf) are active for today's game against Washington. Both entered the day questionable. Bennett has played through "questionable" tags for weeks and should be fine for normal IDP usage. Hicks played just two-thirds of the snaps in last week's return from the multi-week calf injury and looks risky.

Eagles DE Michael Bennett (foot) and MLB Jordan Hicks (calf) are questionable for Sunday's game against Washington. Bennett has been playing through "questionable" tags for weeks and should be in for the finale as well. We'll certainly confirm his status Sunday. Hicks returned last week from 4 games down with the calf injury. He played just 66% of the snaps in that game. Then he missed Thursday's practice and spent Friday limited before the "questionable" designation. Hicks presents a lot of risk for IDP owners this week. But we'll update his status as well in case you're looking to take the plunge. We did move him down the Week 17 IDP rankings.

The Eagles have activated WR Mike Wallace from IR. Wallace has been out since Week 2 with a fibula fracture. He saw just 3 targets over the 1st 2 games, so it's tough to expect any impact from Wallace in Week 17. Philly would have no reason to activate him, though, without some plan for his use. Wallace's return adds a bit of a challenge to the target outlooks for Nelson Agholor and Golden Tate.

Eagles DE Michael Bennett (foot) is active for today's game against the Texans. He has played through questionable tags for several weeks and is fine for usual IDP usage in a high-upside matchup.

The Eagles left MLB Jordan Hicks off the final injury report after he put in full practices Thursday and Friday. Hicks started the week limited by the calf issue that cost him the past 4 games but looks ready for a full return. He'll find a Houston offense that presents a top-6 scoring matchup for fantasy LBs on the year. We've vaulted Hicks up the Week 16 IDP rankings. Elsewhere on the Philly D, DE Michael Bennett is questionable with his foot injury. He has played through questionable tags since Week 13 with the issue. We'll check his status Sunday morning.

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 DE Michael Bennett (foot) is active for tonight's game against the Rams. He has played through multiple questionable tags and is fine to use if you waited for him in IDP lineups.

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 DE Michael Bennett (foot) is questionable for Sunday night's game against the Rams. Bennett played through questionable tags each of the past 2 weeks and put in a full Friday practice this week. Expect Bennett to play Sunday night, albeit in a poor matchup for sack upside.

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 HC Doug Pederson labeled QB Carson Wentz "questionable" for Sunday night's game against the Rams. Pederson also revealed that Wentz is dealing with a stress fracture in his vertebra and will require 3 months to fully heal. We'll see how the Eagles officially list Wentz on the injury report this afternoon, but consider him a long shot to play vs. the Rams.

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.
