Nick Foles went from the backup in Kansas City to the backup in Philadelphia, where he signed a two-year, $11 million contract, with $7 million guaranteed. Foles will now back up second-year quarterback Carson Wentz, and he has minimal Fantasy value as long as Wentz is healthy. In 2016, Foles started one game for the Chiefs in Week 9 against Jacksonville and completed 20-of-33 passes for 187 yards and one touchdown. Foles is not worth drafting in the majority of leagues as long as Wentz is healthy heading into Week 1.
Foles (elbow) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. Foles has been recovering for over a month now, but he's set to back up Carson Wentz against the Redskins on Sunday.
Eagles coach Doug Pederson expects Foles (elbow) to be ready for Week 1, Dave Zangaro of CSN Philadelphia reports. 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. 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. Although Foles has been practicing, the Eagles see no reason to push him and risk him 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. 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.
