Philadelphia Eagles to start Nick Foles at quarterback in Week 16

Philadelphia Eagles to start Nick Foles at quarterback in Week 16

Friday's press conference grew so contentious because of extensive cross-examination regarding Wentz's injury that Pederson stormed off afterward, canceling the weekly informal and off-the-record chat session he has with reporters every Friday morning during the season. Improbable triumphs like Foles' don't usually occur twice in one career, Besides, this Eagles team isn't as strong as last year's. He took over in Week 14 last season after Wentz tore two ligaments in his left knee during a comeback win on the road against the Rams.

Pederson made the announcement the next day that Wentz had a back injury that would keep him out of practice. The Eagles were 1-1 in Foles' starts this season. He missed practice on Wednesday before being limited the past two days. "Until you do a scan, you don't know, we do a lot of testing each week on a lot of players".

Can Nick Foles lead the Philadelphia Eagles back to the postseason?

The fracture will fully heal if given sufficient time, the source said.

Purportedly, the company intends to use the cryptocurrency to allow WhatsApp users to transfer money. Like many other companies, Facebook is exploring ways to leverage the power of blockchain technology.


ESPN reported Wentz has an estimated recovery time of three months, making it unlikely he will play again this season. The quarterback is listed as "doubtful" for Sunday night's game against the Rams in Los Angeles and is scheduled to travel with the team.

Unlike Wentz's status heading into the 2018 season, it does not appear that Wentz's back injury will linger into next season as it will not require surgery.

"If we put him out there, there has to be 100 percent that there's no risk of anything further".

Should Wentz not play, the starting job will go to Nick Foles, who took over late last season and steered the Eagles to an upset Super Bowl win over the New England Patriots and was named Most Valuable Player in the process.
