Tests on Foles' shoulder injury have revealed that his issue is a minor one, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Though a precise timetable for Foles' return to action hasn't been outlined, the report suggests that a "prolonged recovery" isn't expected. Foles' short-term status is of import to the Eagles, since the Week 1 availability of Carson Wentz (knee) could go down to the wire.

Foles will be sent for further tests on his shoulder Friday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Foles told reporters that his shoulder feels "pretty good" after suffering an injury in Thursday's preseason game, but the team will be cautious and send him for more testing Friday. The results of Friday's examination will shed more light on his outlook for the rest of the preseason.

Foles (neck) is questionable to return to Thursday's game agaisnst New England after suffering a shoulder strain.

EDGE Analysis

Foles was hit early and often during his time in Thursday's game, getting sacked three times while completing just 3-of-9 passes for 44 yards. Though he's questionable to return, it would be surprising to see the team risk his health in the preseason. Look for Nate Sudfeld to take some extra snaps while Foles is sidelined.

Dave Spadaro of the Eagles' official site predicts Foles (neck) will play approximately one quarter of Thursday's preseason contest at New England.

EDGE Analysis

Foles has been suffering through muscle spasms in the vicinity of his neck for nearly two weeks, but his health has improved enough that an appearance is expected of him in the Eagles' second exhibition. It would mark his first time on the field since earning Super Bowl MVP honors back in February, but he could be in for a rude welcome in the home stadium of the opponent he defeated in that game. With Carson Wentz's (knee) status up in the air for Week 1, the Eagles may exercise caution with Foles, the starting quarterback in the meantime, so a quarter of play Thursday seems optimistic.

Foles (neck) is expected to play in Thursday's preseason game against the Patriots, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Foles sat out this past Thursday's preseason opener while recovering from muscle spasms in his neck, but it looks as though he's past that issue and ready for some in-game reps. While Foles is clearly the Eagles' No. 2 QB, franchise signal-caller Carson Wentz is still bouncing back from a knee injury and acknowledged Tuesday that his Week 1 availability could turn into a close call.

Foles (neck) will be a limited participant at practice Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Foles didn't play in Thursday's preseason opener as he continued to battle muscles spasms in his neck, but his full return to practice shouldn't be too far off at this point. The team has no incentive to push Foles' return with him securely in the backup role, especially with franchise quarterback Carson Wentz still on the mend from a knee injury.

Foles is dealing with muscle spasms in his neck area, Martin Frank of the Delaware News reports.

EDGE Analysis

The issue has kept Foles out of practice of late, but the QB is confident that he'll be fine before long. It's safe to assume that Foles won't be playing in Thursday's preseason opener, as there's no upside in pushing him, especially with franchise signal-caller Carson Wentz still working his way back from a knee injury.

Foles (upper body) isn't practicing Tuesday and likely will be held out of Thursday's preseason opener against the Steelers, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Carson Wentz (knee) still a limited participant and Foles held out for a third straight day, the Eagles presumably will be left with Nate Sudfeld and Joe Callahan at quarterback for Thursday's game. There hasn't been any indication that Foles is dealing with a serious injury.

Foles is dealing with unspecified "upper body soreness," Tim McManus of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

As a result, the QB was a spectator for Monday's practice. If things go as hoped, Carson Wentz (knee) will be able to reclaim the Eagles' starting QB role in time to get the starting nod in Week 1, but Foles remains on hand, giving the team a highly capable contingency plan in the even that Wentz suffers any setbacks or is simply brought back slowly by the team with the long haul in mind.

The Eagles and Foles agreed to a revised contract Friday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Foles' second stint with the Eagles was expected to end after the 2018 season, but the adjusted deal has a mutual option for the 2019 campaign, allowing him to dabble in free agency next offseason or return to Philly. Along with additional flexibility, he received a $2 million signing bonus and has the potential to earn more millions in incentives in 2018 if he starts and reaches certain benchmarks. In the end, Foles' upcoming earnings are tied to Carson Wentz's recovery from a torn ACL, which he suffered Dec. 10. With knowledge of the typical rehab from such an injury, Foles is a good bet to be under center for a number of games, but Wentz relayed his goal Tuesday of a return by Week 1.
