Eagles coach Doug Pederson expects Foles (elbow) to be ready for Week 1, Dave Zangaro of CSN Philadelphiareports.

EDGE Analysis

Pederson said Foles is still considered day-to-day and is expected to throw during the upcoming week. While he may not be available for the preseason finale, Foles apparently is on track to serve as Carson Wentz's backup Week 1.

Head coach Doug Pederson said Foles (elbow) had a setback this week, Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Foles, who hasn't participated in the preseason, seemingly overworked his arm in practice Monday. If he isn't ready to go in time for the regular season, Matt McGloin will take over as the backup to Carson Wentz.

Foles (elbow) will be sidelined for Thursday's preseason game against Miami, Tim McManus of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Although Foles has been practicing, the Eagles see no reason to push him and risk further aggravating his elbow. Matt McGloin is expected to receive a good chunk of preseason snaps, but still expect Foles to be the backup for the 2016 second-overall pick, Carson Wentz, when the Week 1 depth chart is set.

Foles (elbow) practiced for the first time in more than two weeks on Monday, Zach Berman of Philly.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Foles missed the team's preseason opener, and is still expected to be sidelined for their next exhibition contest as well. The hope is for him to return for the team's third game. "You don't want to rush it, but at the same time, you want to get him in the action," according to offensive coordinator Frank Reich. The Eagles are hopeful Foles can back up second-year quarterback Carson Wentz this season, but it remains to be seen if his elbow will be up for the challenge.

Foles (elbow) isn't expected to play in Thursday's preseason matchup with the Bills, Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Though Foles returned to practice Monday, it seems the Eagles won't be rushing him back into action. Matt McGloin will presumably handle the No. 2 QB reps in his place.

Foles (elbow) returned to practice Monday, Tim McManus of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Foles has been sidelined throughout training camp with the elbow issue, which allowed Matt McGloin to handle second-team duties during the Eagles' preseason opener last week against the Packers. It's unclear if Foles will get enough reps under his belt in the next few days to receive clearance to play Thursday against the Bills, but he still looks like a good bet to break camp as the top backup to Carson Wentz.

Eagles coach Doug Pederson said Sunday that Foles is dealing with elbow soreness, but the issue isn't deemed serious and it's expected that the quarterback will return to practice "in a week or so," Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

While Foles is sidelined, Matt McGloin will see most of the reps with the second-team offense, with Dane Evans serving as the third-string option at quarterback. Though Foles memorably submitted a 27:2 touchdown-to-interception ratio in only 13 games with the Eagles in 2013, that season has represented an outlier for what's been an otherwise mediocre career for the 28-year-old. As Foles begins his second tour with Philadelphia, it's not expected that he'll pose a serious threat to 2016 first-round pick Carson Wentz's status as the starter.

Foles agreed to a two-year contract with the Eagles on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

After spending the last two seasons in Missouri with the Rams and Chiefs, Foles will head back to the place where he began his career in 2012. The 27-year-old once looked like he might be the permanent solution at quarterback for the Eagles after tossing 27 touchdowns against just two interceptions over 13 games in 2013, but he regressed the following season and appears to have settled into backup duties at this stage of his career. Foles will serve as the understudy for second-year signal caller Carson Wentz, and his addition will likely prompt the Eagles to trade well-regarded backup Chase Daniel to another team this offseason.

Foles, whose team option was declined by the Chiefs on Mar. 9 and is therefore an unrestricted free agent, is the subject of interest from the Bucs, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The feeling is allegedly mutual, reports Fowler, citing unnamed sources. Foles would presumably slide into the No. 2 quarterback role vacated by Mike Glennon, who inked a three-year contract with the Bears on Friday. The 28-year-old Foles completed 36 of 55 passes for 410 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions over three games in 2016 as Alex Smith's backup in Kansas City, and enjoyed his best pro season while a teammate of new Bucs receiver DeSean Jackson in Philadelphia back in 2013.
