As if blowing out the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Championship Game to advance to Super Bowl LII wasn’t good enough, the Philadelphia Eagles seemingly made it through the game without sustaining any major injuries.

With that said, Eagles quarterback reportedly did have precautionary X-rays after the game.

The good news is that it doesn’t appear to be serious.

Even if Foles is dealing with some pain, the good news is the Eagles will have some time to rest before they play the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl on Sunday, Feb. 4.

Foles was unexpectedly excellent in Philadelphia’s 34-7 win over the Vikings on Sunday night. The 29-year-old passer had 26 completions on 33 attempts (78.9%) for 352 yards, three touchdowns, zero interceptions, and a 141.4. He did all that against a Minnesota defense that ranked first in the NFL. The performance was nothing short of impressive.

It goes without saying the Eagles could really use another game like that from Foles in the Super Bowl. The good news is he’ll be healthy and ready to go for that matchup.

We’ll hear more about Foles’ status from Doug Pederson during his Monday press conference at noon.
