Nick Foles QB PHI 17 Days
Coach Chip Kelly said Friday that Foles will have another X-ray in three to four weeks to observe how his broken collarbone is healing, Geoff Mosher of CSN Philadelphia reports. Kelly said the X-ray will give the Eagles a better sense of when Foles might be ready to return.
Initial media reports indicated that Foles would miss six to eight weeks, but the Eagles have not publicly stated any concete timetable or target date for when they expect Foles to return. Kelly wouldn't even commit to Foles as the starter when he eventually returns, saying that he didn't want to deal in hypotheticals. If you haven't already, it's probably time to drop Foles in redraft leagues and better utilize that roster spot.

Though Foles will not need surgery to repair his fractured clavicle, the QB is expected to miss 6-8 weeks, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
While Foles has evidently avoided a worst-case scenario, with such an estimated timetable putting a return before the end of the season within range, the QB's extended absence is a big hit to his fantasy owners, who will now need to aggressively seek out a replacement. Mark Sanchez -- who will fill in for Foles as the Eagles' starter -- is thus an obvious priority waiver/FAAB target.

Foles, who has a crack in his clavicle, is slated to undergo an MRI, according to coach Chip Kelly.
While it's clear that Foles is going to miss time, a timetable for his potential return has yet to be established, though perhaps his MRI will provide some added clarity on that front, sooner rather than later. While Foles is sidelined, Mark Sanchez is in line to start at QB for the Eagles, beginning next Monday against the Panthers.

Foles was diagnosed with a broken collarbone after Sunday's win over the Texans, and an MRI on Monday will determine the expected length of his absence, CSN Philadelphia's Derrick Gunn reports.
Foles will likely be out for at least the next few weeks, but a broken collarbone won't necessarily sideline him for the rest of the season. It sounds like the Eagles should have a better idea about a timetable by Monday or Tuesday, at which point they'll hopefully relay that information. Mark Sanchez played pretty well during Sunday's win over the Texans, and while the former Jet isn't one of the league's better passers, he could make for a surprisingly strong option over the next few weeks. Foles entered Sunday on pace for 683 pass attempts, which would be the third-most any player has thrown in a season.

Though coach Chip Kelly did not provide a detailed update on the status of Foles (clavicle), it appears as though the quarterback could miss some time, the Star-Ledger reports. "It doesn't look good," Kelly said after Sunday's win over the Texans. "Foles is in a sling."
If Foles is unable to play next Monday against the Panthers, Mark Sanchez would be in line to start at QB for the Eagles, with the more significant concern for Foles owners being the possibility suggested by Jeff_McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer that the QB may have suffered a broken collarbone. Such an outcome has not been confirmed either way, though, so stay tuned for further updates on Foles' status.

The injury that knocked Foles out of Sunday's game against Houston is an issue with his clavicle, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.
Even though the injury is to Foles' left (non-throwing) shoulder, a broken clavicle would likely result in an extended absence for the Eagles' passer. However, the Eagles have not released the results of the X-rays, so the severity of the clavicle injury remains uncertain. Mark Sanchez replaced Foles on Sunday and would take over as the starter if Foles has to miss any time.

Foles (left shoulder) will not return to Sunday's game against Houston, the Philadelphia Inquirer's Jeff McLane reports.
The Eagles have still not announced the results of Foles' X-rays, but obviously he's dealing with more than just a minor bruise for the team to declare him out. Mark Sanchez will finish this one out for the Eagles, and we'll have plenty more information on the Eagles' quarterback situation once the team releases more information about the severity of the injury. Philadelphia plays next Monday night against Carolina.

Foles suffered an apparent left shoulder injury on the last play of the first quarter Sunday against the Texans, the Philadelphia Inquirer's Jeff McLane reports. Foles was taken to the locker room for X-rays, and his return is questionable.
Foles was hunched over as he walked to the sidelines following the injury. Mark Sanchez is warming up on the sidelines and will take over for Foles on the Eagles' next possession. Stay tuned.

Foles completed 36-of-62 passes for 411 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 24-20 loss at Arizona. He was not sacked and tossed two interceptions.
In many ways, it was a mixed bag for Foles, as he made a number of big plays with several poor decisions sprinkled in. This was the case on back-to-back plays at one point in the second quarter, when from deep in his own territory, he made an improvisational play, hooking up with Riley Cooper on a sweet 50-yard bomb. On the very next play, however, Foles tossed an interception in the end zone, while throwing the ball of his back foot to a covered player. He later added a gorgeous 54-yard touchdown to Jeremy Maclin, but also had an ugly interception in the fourth quarter. The third-year QB got off to a quick start this season, but he's posted just a 6:7 TD:INT ratio in the last four games. He's more than capable of making big plays in Philadelphia's creative offense, although he needs to do a better job protecting the ball, while avoiding the aforementioned mistakes, some of which can be attributed to poor footwork/mechanics. Next week, he'll face a Texans' secondary that hasn't' been able to defend the pass very well this year.

Foles completed 21-of-34 passes for 248 yards, with two touchdowns and two interceptions in Sunday's 27-0 win over the Giants.
Foles got off to a fast start as the Eagles jumped out to a lead, but he then reverted to the sloppy form that we've seen for much of this season. Both of his interceptions were ugly, though it should also be noted that he made a few excellent throws. That seems to be his M.O. this year, as he's on pace for 4,341 passing yards, 27 touchdowns and 19 interceptions. Foles will hope to be more consistent after the Eagles' Week 7 bye, starting with a Week 8 game in Arizona.
