Foles attempted just one pass after being removed as the Bears' starting quarterback after Week 10.

EDGE Analysis

Foles started eight games in his first year with the Bears, throwing for 1,852 yards and 10 touchdowns along with eight interceptions before losing the job back to Mitchell Trubisky. With Trubisky going into the off-season as an unrestricted free agent, it's possible that Foles will be in competition to be the team's starting quarterback in Week 1 of the 2021 season, though it's unlikely he'll be considered as any more than a top-20 fantasy option at his position. He's currently signed with the Bears through the 2022 season.

Foles (hip) is active for Sunday's game against the Lions.

EDGE Analysis

Foles came into the morning labeled as questionable, but full practice sessions for the 31-year-old Thursday and Friday hinted at a likely Week 13 return. He wasn't able to suit up last Sunday night against the Packers and will now revert to a backup role for another divisional showdown against Detroit.

The Bears list Foles (hip) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions.

EDGE Analysis

Though the questionable designation implies that Foles has a 50-50 chance to play, he looks to be trending toward active status after practicing in full capacity Thursday and Friday. Head coach Matt Nagy backed up that sentiment Thursday, saying that he expects Foles to return from a two-week absence to back up Mitchell Trubisky, according to Larry Mayer of the Bears' official site. Nagy hasn't committed to Trubisky as the team's starting quarterback for the rest of the season, so a poor showing from the 2017 first-round pick against Detroit could allow Foles to move back atop the depth chart as soon as Week 14.

Foles (hip) was a full practice participant Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

After sitting out last week's loss to the Packers with the hip injury, Foles looks poised to play Sunday against the Lions, but he won't be returning to action in a starting role with head coach Matt Nagy naming Mitch Trubisky as the team's Week 13 signal-caller. Per Larry Mayer of the Bears' official site, Nagy said he expects Foles to be healthy enough to handle the No. 2 duties this weekend, a notion that would be supported by the Bears not adding another quarterback to the roster before Sunday. Whomever starts for the Bears in Week 14 and beyond will likely hinge on how Trubisky performs against Detroit.

Foles (hip) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

EDGE Analysis

Foles was unable to practice in any capacity before being deemed inactive of last Sunday's loss in Green Bay, so it's encouraging to see him back on the field in at least a limited fashion. Coach Matt Nagy has already named Mitchell Trubisky the starting quarterback for Week 13, but it's possible that Foles could be available as the No. 2 option over Tyler Bray in the Bears' matchup with the Lions.

Foles (hip) is inactive for Sunday's contest at Green Bay.

EDGE Analysis

On the heels of the Bears' bye, Foles didn't practice at all this week due to a hip pointer suffered in the team's last game Nov. 16. Because he was listed as doubtful, there was little reason to believe Foles would be available Week 12, and Chicago forecast his absence by elevating Tyler Bray from the practice squad Saturday. Consequently, Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) will start for the first time since Week 3. Beyond Sunday, coach Matt Nagy hasn't committed to Foles or Trubisky, so the former may be under center again Week 13 against the Lions if he can get past his health concern.

Foles (hip) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game at Green Bay.

EDGE Analysis

Unable to practice in any capacity this week, Foles appears highly unlikely to play. Meanwhile, Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) was a full participant Wednesday through Friday, and he doesn't have an injury designation for the game. Trubisky likely will make his first start since Week 3.

Foles (hip) missed Thursday's practice.

EDGE Analysis

Afterward, coach Matt Nagy continued to call Foles day-to-day and said the team will examine the team's QB situation Friday before making a call on its Week 12 starting signal-caller. Considering Foles has yet to step on the field and Mitchell Trubisky (right shoulder) has back-to-back full sessions under his belt, the latter seems to be trending toward the starting nod. Still, Nagy seems to be leaving the door open for Foles to get in some reps before naming one of the duo as the No. 1 QB for Sunday's game at Green Bay.

Foles (hip) was a non-participant in Wednesday's practice.

EDGE Analysis

According to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune, head coach Matt Nagy said he's viewing Foles as day-to-day, so the signal-caller still has a chance to be available for Sunday's game against the Packers. In the meantime, however, Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) will get the opportunity to work as the Bears' top quarterback in practice. After a string of underwhelming performances, Foles wasn't guaranteed to remain the Bears' starter coming out of a Week 11 bye, and the decision to potentially remove him from the role would become easier for the Chicago coaching staff if he isn't able to practice Thursday or Friday.

Coach Matt Nagy said Monday that it's "too soon" to announce whether Foles (hip) or Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) will start Sunday's game against the Packers, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Both Foles and Trubisky are dealing with injuries coming off the Bears' bye. Foles picked up what is believed to be a severe hip pointer versus the Vikings on Nov. 16, while Trubisky's shoulder issue has kept him off the field since Week 8. Per Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times, only Trubisky was present at the portion of Monday's practice open to the media, and a decision on the starter for Week 12 could be revealed as early as Wednesday. Foles has just a 10:8 TD:INT across eight games this season, and he's only thrown for over 300 yards once.
