Nick Foles Injury Updates | Shark Bites

The Bears head toward Week 12 with injuries to both QBs. Nick Foles sustained a hip injury late in last Monday night's loss to the Vikings. Mitchell Trubisky entered that week with a shoulder injury and is still working back from it. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, HC Matt Nagy declined to say Monday who will start Sunday against the Packers, adding that a switch to Trubisky is "on the table." Tyler Bray came on to finish the Week 10 game after Foles' injury.

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.

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 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 Nick Foles' throwing shoulder injury is minor, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "Don’t expect any prolonged recovery," Rapoport adds. It sounds like Foles will be available by Week 1. We'll see if he's needed or if QB Carson Wentz (knee) is ready.

Eagles QB Nick Foles injured his right (throwing) shoulder in Thursday night's preseason game against the Patriots. The team is calling it a "shoulder strain." Foles played poorly before exiting, completing just 3 of 9 passes for 44 yards. The injury is a major concern considering QB Carson Wentz isn't a lock to be ready for Week 1. Nate Sudfeld is Philly's #3 QB.

Eagles insider Derrick Gunn confirms that QB Nick Foles broke his collarbone in Sunday's game against the Titans.  An MRI on Monday will determine exactly how long he'll be sidelined.  Foles figures to miss at least a month and could be out longer if there's more to the injury than just the broken bone.  We'll have another update on his status tomorrow.

Eagles QB Nick Foles left in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game with a left (non-throwing) shoulder injury.  He headed back to the locker room with trainers, presumably for x-rays.  Foles is considered questionable to return.  QB Mark Sanchez will step in if Foles can't.

Update: Foles was ruled out for the rest of the game at halftime.

Eagles QB Nick Foles told ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio, “I gotta get healthy.” Foles then showed Sal Pal a “soft-ball sized” bruise on his left shoulder. It’s unclear when Foles suffered that injury, but he’s taken some huge hits this season. Although the injury is to his non-throwing shoulder, it might still be a reason for Foles’ inconsistent play so far this season. He’s completing just 57.8% of his passes and averaging just 7.1 yards per attempt. Both marks are way down from last year’s 64% completion rate and 9.1-yard average.

The Eagles are set to sign QB Mark Sanchez, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen.  HC Chip Kelly must have a thing for weak-armed former USC QBs, selecting Matt Barkley in the 4th round of last year's draft and now signing Sanchez.  Those 2 will compete for backup duties behind QB Nick Foles.  If Sanchez wins that job, he'd take over an explosive offense in the event of a Foles injury.  Even then, though, it'd be tough to trust him as a fantasy option.  He arrives in Philly with a career 55% completion rate and 68:69 TD-to-INT ratio.

Eagles QB Nick Foles has left the game against Dallas early with a concussion.  He'll be evaluated for a concussion and won't return.  Foles looked a bit hobbled in the 1st half, though, and never worked as efficiently as he did in a Week 6 win over the Bucs.  FOX's Jay Glazer reports that the QB actually entered the game with an undisclosed groin injury.  Matt Barkley entered the game and threw an INT to Cowboys LB Sean Lee on his 1st possession.  We'll keep an eye on Foles' situation, but Michael Vick seems likely to reclaim the job in Week 8.

Eagles 3rd-round rookie QB Nick Foles has had an impressive preseason and appears to have bypassed Mike Kafka for the #2 QB spot.  Starting last night's game against the Browns in place of Michael Vick, Foles completed 12 of 19 passes for 146 yards with 2 TDs and 1 INT.  For the preseason, he's completed 63% of his balls and averaged a juicy 8.9 yards per attempt.  He's tossed 6 TDs vs. just 2 INTs.  "He's confident," WR Jeremy Maclin said of Foles.  "I think he's very talented and as long as he stats confident and stays poised, you'll continue to see him have good games."  Foles obviously isn't a threat to Vick's starting job, but he does have the look of Philly's QB of the future.  He's a worthwhile long-term stash in deep dynasty leagues.  Foles' emergence is also nice insurance for Eagles' pass-catchers in the event of another Vick injury.
