Eagles announce strained shoulder for Nick Foles

AP

Eagles quarterback Nick Foles missed the first preseason game with an upper body injury. He left the second with an injury.

The Eagles announced a strained shoulder for Foles.

In the second quarter, the Super Bowl MVP was sacked by Adrian Clayborn and fumbled. Linebacker Ja'whaun Bentley returned the loose ball 54 yards for a touchdown.

Foles immediately grabbed his right arm after being hit and headed directly to the medical tent.

Nothing about the game went well for Foles.

He went only 3-for-9 for 44 yards and took three sacks. The Patriots led 17-0 before Eagles backup quarterback Nate Sudfeld directed a seven-play, 69-yard touchdown drive.

  1. Shoulders are notorious for being slow healing…..and if it’s his throwing arm even worse.

  2. Two bad it isn’t the Superbowl Pats fans. Only a bunch of losers would game plan,play their starters and blitz on every play in a pre season game. Enjoy it while it last.

  3. Eagles are treating this like a preseason game . Pats treating this like a playoff game .

    a couple of those sack 6 months ago and that game turns out a little different

    BUT IT DID NOT!

  6. Sucks. As a Pats fan we didnt want this. We want to get a crack at a healthy Eagles team at the end of the year. Hopefully Wentz comes back and goes the distance.

    Wentz is hurt now Foles, lol, easy road for packers

    Sudfeld is looking like he would own you guys.

  8. they said he got hurt on the play where he was strip sacked for a fumble return TD dude….which is what blew it open. What excuse? Injured after the fact. But keep reaching again. 20 people lack reading comprehension and are blinded by Eagles hate. 4 people have common sense.

    “easy road”; then ya forgot to pay homage to the zebras in gb’s back pocket.

  10. Me thinks Foles storybook run will come back to earth this year . I have watched football since the mid 70’s and I have seen very few QB’s ever get THAT hot like Foles did from the NFCCG to the SB . It was like the stars all aligned perfectly and he could do no wrong in those two games .

    Foles just has a strained shoulder and Wentz will be back week one but what kind of low life wishes for injury’s?

    More like easy road for the Saints, Rams or Vikings.

    One-man teams don’t work in the NFL.

  13. Let the haters hate. But let me remind you that about half our starters were hurt last year and we put a hurting on the nfl. Oh that’s right we’re champions.

  14. John Faulstich you really didn’t say that did you??? This was a second pre season game. You are talking about the Super Bowl The Eagles and you want to insert sacks in a second pre season game. That is delusional and sad.
    THHE PHILADELPHIA EAGLES ARE THE 2018 SUPER BOWL CHAMPIONS and they didn’t cheat to get there. The Patriots filmed the Eagles sideline calls in the 2004 Super Bowl and knew every defensive and offensive play the Eagles ran in the second half. That is cheating!

  15. The Pats played their starters including Brady for an entire half….blitzed repeatedly….ran trick plays.

    The Eagles played their 3rd string QB for most of the game, ran an vanilla offense, never blitzed.

    Someone was salty about losing Super Bowl 52.

  16. First off… Its preseason. Nobody is game planning and many Eagles starters didnt play. That doesnt excuse Foles playing like crap but still, he is the backup (I know Pat fans forget that since he beat you in the SB, but he is the backup).

    It also looked like the Patriots really wanted this game. Well, you got your revenge I suppose lol. Part of that is human nature and understandable but part of that is also pathetic in a preseason game. They blitzed like crazy and everything (an unwritten rule not to blitz in preseason). At the end of the day, its preseason. Score doesnt mean crap. The Eagles lost 37-20 (actually outgained the patriots in yards too lol).

  17. Sending stunts & blitzing 6 in the preseason. BB says he is always on to today/tomorrow, but it sure as heck looked like he wanted to make up for some mistakes made a few months ago.

    Go get your (preseason) pound of flesh Bill… I’d want a little too.

  18. Vick is still available. Or McNabb.

    “Eagles love Sudfeld” – yes, until he has one bad game, then they will sour on him and boo him off the field

    Typical Packer fan revelling in other teams’ injuries.

  20. Say what? Who is making excuses? Foles gets hurt early.. what is so hard to understand about that?!

  21. Unfortunately for the Patriots, this game does not count. It probably does not make them feel any better winning a meaningless game after blowing the big one last February.

    ===================================================

    That’s what I was thinking when Eagles fans cheered while Michael Irvin was laying on the ground with a spinal cord injury.

  23. You Pat fans act like this game actually matter, some crazy post by Pats fan, you should be embarrassed by how stupid you guys sound. Eagles are still Super Bowl champs and this was a boring pre season game that nobody cares about except the trolls. Talk about act like you have been there.

    lollolol

    Easy Road for the Packers? lol. Even if both are hurt and they lose a couple of games, they are still good enough to overcome that and make the playoffs.

    The Packers still have to worry about The Saints, The Rams, The Vikings, The Falcons, Panthers up and coming teams like the 49ers.

    The Packers are vastly less talented than the Saints, Rams, Vikings, Falcons. The only reason the Packers even stand a chance rests on one player. Better hope he doesn’t get hurt again.

  25. My gosh, the Patriots* fans on here, to no surprise, seem thrilled that they won a preseason game against the team to which they lost the Super Bowl just months ago and this game somehow vindicates everything. Seriously the worst, most childish fanbase in all of sports.

    We won a preseason game! That means we should have won the Super Bowl!

  26. Yeah I know. It’s the preseason. But the Eagles wanted this game. Just ask Lane Johnson. They did not want historical revisionists to say “I knew the Patriots were better. They just had a lot of injuries and a couple bad calls go against them.”

    So given that, there are a lot of things that should alarm the Eagles.

    Lame Johnson seemed to think it mattered. He sounded pretty stupid, so maybe you should include him in your tantrum.

    Trust me, this game didn’t matter to the vast majority of us. It’s not exactly our first rodeo, capice?

  29. Foles didn’t look good even before the injury happened. And how come we’re not hearing from Lane Johnson? No-postgame comments for this one?

    It’s called evaluating your talent……after last season’’s defensive meltdown I’m sure Bill wants to see what he has to work with

  31. I don’t get the comments about a team actually playing football. You know, running actual plays designed to work?
    I thought that exhibition games were about evaluating the roster, trying out formations, schemes, plays.

    NE’s defense was execrable in the SB…
    There is just about no other immediate priority for BB to evaluate than his defense….and they have a new DC to boot.

    and in a variation to NE’s reply to fans complaining about running up the score, “if you don’t want us to score, stop us”….

    It is a contest, isn’t it?

    Based on all the comments from the past week Eagles players and fans were the ones foaming at the mouth over this game. NE fans have been through this a few times more than you guys so you’re excused for your bad behavior. Take heart, you may grow into real fans once your team goes to 8 Super Bowls in 17 years. I’ll take 0-4 in preseason anytime.

  33. Wentz is looking great at camp. Apparently the only way you knew he had a knew injury was due to the brace. t looks like he will PROBABLY start week 1. Foles has a strained shoulder, not a broken collarbone – get a grip.

    Meanwhile, Philly’s 3rd string QB throws for 3 TDs and 312 yards in a half. The one INT was not on him.

    Gawd I love our QB coaching staff. FLY EAGLES FLY!

  34. I take no joy on a preseason win, its meaningless. Eagles are still champs this mornng, I get that. And kudos to them.

    But what blows me away is all the comments from eagles fans criticizing the Patriots for playing competatively. Do you not understand the point of preseason games? If teams were just to do walkthroughs they could skip games just hold practices. The point of a preseason game is to get the players reaquainted with game speed and intensity. Although the outcome does not matter the teams are still supposed to attempt to succeed at the things they are trying to do.

    I think the Eagles fans getting upset over the Patriots winning are the real ones that need to remember this was nothing more than a preseason game.

    Put up another billboard and see what happens then.

    ——————-
    That billboard is hilarious. I chuckle every time I drive by it. No anger here, I do have to salute a good trolling when I see one. And the bet that caused it was won fair and square there is no denying. So hey.

    The Patriots have said absolutely nothing about it and there has been no movement to get it taken down. I have a sneaking suspicion Belichick secretly likes it being there for his players to drive past every day.

  36. Much like the Patriots, the Eagles are so stacked, they can plug anyone in at QB. This injury won’t make a difference.
