#Eagles QB Nick Foles has a clavicle injury from what I'm being told. If broken, it could be a 4-6 week injury.— Jeff McLane (@Jeff_McLane) November 2, 2014
Foles was hurt during Philadelphia's Week 9 game against the Houston Texans. Foles was visibly hurt after being sacked early in the game. The third-year quarterback left the game and was taken back to the locker room before being ruled out to return.
Eagles backup quarterback Mark Sanchez took over for Foles and did enough to help lead the Eagles to a 31-21 win over Houston. It wasn't all pretty for Sanchez, however, as the veteran threw two interceptions.
The Eagles will be forced to stick with Sanchez as they prepare to face some very important games on their schedule. Foles' injury also means that second-year quarterback Matt Barkley will serve as the team's second-string quarterback.
Eagles QB Nick Foles broke collarbone, as @TheRealDGunnCSN reported, and is sidelined indefinitely. Aaron Rodgers missed 7 games last year.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) November 3, 2014
