Nick Foles Injury: Eagles think quarterback is “OK” after suffering bruised ribs

UPDATE: Good news for Foles — and the Eagles — it looks like the team is optimistic this isn’t a long-term injury for the quarterback.


Nick Foles was having yet another good game for the Eagles against Washington, tying an NFL record for consecutive completions (25) and putting the team up 17-0 heading into the fourth quarter. But then, the quarterback was taken down on a sack by Ryan Kerrigan and ended up being taken to the locker room to be evaluated for a chest injury.

It seems like the chest injury may have been a bit of carryover from the big hit he took last week from Jadeveon Clowney against the Texans that sidelined him for one play.

Foles was 28-of-33 on the day for 221 yards, two touchdowns and one interception before he was sidelined.

Nate Sudfeld came in for the quarterback, and head coach Doug Pederson said earlier in the week that he has a lot of confidence in the young QB. When Sudfeld came in for the one play against Houston, Pederson said the quarterback was calm and prepared and was ready to finish out the game if he had to — and, now he might be in that position.
