Foles (elbow) practiced fully Friday and does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

Though Foles will be available Sunday, he'll revert to backup status now that Alex Smith has been re-installed as the Chiefs' starting QB.

Foles (elbow) was limited at practice Wednesday, the Kansas City Star reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Alex Smith in line to start Sunday against the Panthers, Foles is off the Week 10 fantasy radar, in any case.

Foles completed 20 of 33 passes for 187 yards and a score in Sunday's win over Jacksonville.

EDGE Analysis

There was some talk of Foles, a third-round pick of Andy Reid's in Philadelphia, potentially giving the injured Alex Smith a run for his money for the starting job. Sunday's performance responded with a resounding "Meh!" Foles uncorked some beautiful touch throws, including a 23-yard touchdown to Albert Wilson, but he also botched a second, point-blank score with a short-armed pass and was rescued by a Jacksonville drop of an early would-be interception on a badly overthrown pass. Any criticism of Foles' solid but unspectacular play should be tempered by the fact that the team was without its top two backs, Jeremy Maclin was injured early, and tight end Travis Kelce got himself thrown out of the game. Still, there was little there to make fans forget about Alex Smith.

Foles is slated to start Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

EDGE Analysis

Meanwhile, fellow QB Alex Smith won't be available to back Foles up Sunday, setting the stage for Tyler Bray to handle the team's No. 2 QB duties. While Foles looked sharp in relief of Smith in this past Sunday's win over the Colts, he remains a speculative play in Week 9 fantasy lineups, though he's certainly worth considering by those scrambling for signal-caller help on a week in which six NFL teams are on bye.

Foles completed 16 of 23 passes for 223 yards and two touchdowns after replacing a concussed Alex Smith in Sunday's 30-14 win over the Colts.

EDGE Analysis

Foles showed an excellent rapport with his receivers, connecting with tight end Travis Kelce for a 14-yard second-quarter touchdown, and hitting wide receiver Tyreek Hill from 34 yards out in third. The 27-year-old quarterback has previously served as a starter for the Eagles and Rams, and has a 55:27 career touchdown-to-interception ratio. He'll have some upside against the Jaguars if Smith isn't cleared to play by next week.

Foles completed just two of his five passes for 65 yards in Saturday's third preseason game against the Bears.

EDGE Analysis

While he completed just two passes, one of them to Tyreek hill went for 58 yards. Given that he's cemented as the No. 2 option for the Chiefs this season, the team decided to give both Aaron Murray and Kevin Hogan a little run to see what they have behind Foles.

Foles had a big second preseason showing with the Chiefs, completing 18 of 22 passes for 133 yards.

EDGE Analysis

Foles replaced Alex Smith in the contest and led the team for a large portion of the game. He appears to have distanced himself from the other quarterbacks on the roster (Tyler Bray, Aaron Murray, Kevin Hogan) for the backup job, and may have solidified himself in that role with this performance. Regardless, it would take an Alex Smith injury for him to enter the fantasy picture.

Foles was the first quarterback to replace Alex Smith at Monday's practice, ESPN's Adam Teicher reports.

EDGE Analysis

Though Foles is currently listed behind Smith, Tyler Bray and Aaron Murray on the Chiefs' initial posted depth chart, the newcomer is getting more and more of the squad's second-team snaps behind Smith and we suspect that it wont be long before Foles moves up to the No. 2 spot officially.

Foles will see some time under center in the Chiefs' first preseason game next Saturday against the Seahawks, the Kansas City Star reports.

EDGE Analysis

While Foles may have an outside shot at securing the starting gig, but it's Alex Smith is nearly guaranteed to have that job. Given that the fifth-year quarterback began his career under Andy Reid, it could be a relatively quick learning curve for him, evidenced by the fact that he will see action in the first preseason game. The Chiefs currently have five quarterbacks under contract that are likely vying for three spots, and Foles may need to beat out Aaron Murray and Tyler Bray at the very least to secure his spot on the 53-man roster.

Foles agreed to terms with the Chiefs on Wednesday, Mike Garafolo of NFL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Foles' signing with Kansas City spells a reunion with Andy Reid, who the quarterback during his rookie season in Philadelphia. Original rumors claimed that the Dallas Cowboys were front-runners to sign Foles after backup quarterback Kellen Moore broke his ankle early in training camp, but the the Chiefs rose up as a suitor for Foles Wednesday evening and got the deal done. The fifth-year quarterback will likely back up Alex Smith in Kansas City, but has proven himself serviceable when called upon, throwing 53 touchdowns and 27 interceptions in 39 games over the course of his career.
