The Rams offensive line struggled Sunday, as running backs Tre Mason, Benny Cunningham and Todd Gurley combined for 37 yards on 16 carries. Foles was also sacked twice.
He connected with seven different receivers and seems to have developed chemistry with wideout Kenny Britt, who caught seven passes on 10 targets for 102 yards after catching a touchdown pass in Week 2. While the two are playing well together, there isn't much upside in Week 4 against the Cardinals in Arizona.
Foles relayed that his ankle was rolled on near the end of Sunday's game, but it wasn't serious enough to hinder his practice participation. With a friendly matchup on tap against the Steelers, who have surrendered 623 passing yards and six touchdowns through two games, he could be a sneaky play in Week 3.
Foles sustained the injury on the final drive of the contest, and afterward, he was examined and potentially worked on in the training room. Wagoner relayed that the next opportunity to provide an update on Foles' status arrives Tuesday, when the Rams' next practice takes place. In two games under center in St. Louis, he's 35-of-59 passing (59.3 percent) for 447 yards and two touchdowns, which he's supplemented with another score on the ground.
Foles connected with eight different receivers, with tight end Jared Cook (five catches on seven targets for 47 yards) and running back Benny Cunningham (four catches on six targets for 27 yards) the only players with more than two receptions.
The Rams offense was stagnant for most of the day outside of Kenny Britt's 40-yard touchdown in the third quarter, and there is little to make fantasy owners believe Foles can break out with a big performance in Week 3 against the Steelers.
Foles completed 18 of 27 passes for 297 yards and a touchdown in the upset victory over the reigning NFC champs. He ran in for a one-yard score in the third quarter and threw a 37-yard touchdown to Lance Kendricks in the fourth quarter.
The Rams will face off against the Redskins Week 2.
