Report: Nick Foles’ shoulder injury is minor

AP

The play looked far worse than it ended up being, thankfully for the Eagles.

Further medical tests reveled quarterback Nick Foles‘ shoulder is “OK,” and the Eagles don’t expect a prolonged recovery, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports.

The Eagles announced a strained shoulder for Foles after a strip-sack by Adrian Clayborn on Thursday night. Foles said afterward that his shoulder “feels all right, feels pretty good.”

The Eagles can breathe again after getting the diagnosis confirmed.

The Super Bowl MVP immediately grabbed his right arm after being hit by Clayborn as he took his arm back. He headed directly to the medical tent after Patriots linebacker Ja'whaun Bentley returned the loose ball 54 yards for a touchdown.

Foles did not play in the first preseason game with an upper body injury. Starter Carson Wentz did not play in either game as he continues to work his way back from the knee injury that prematurely ended his season and opened the door for Foles to star in the postseason.

    “The City of Last Place”.

    Defending Superbowl Champions, Skins, last place as usual. Get a reality check boy.

  2. Frankly it didn’t look bad either but more an easy excuse to pull him out as he was having a terrible time – more like the old Foles and on a really bad day. Sudfield looked ok though. Pats ginally found a pass rush.

  4. Belichick showed the blueprint on how to stop Foles. He might as well retire now.

  5. 28 of 43 for 373 yards, 3 TDs, and a Super Bowl MVP trophy when the game counted. If only everyone else could hold him to such a terrible performance…

  6. LMBO, it was a preseason game which the Eagles did not game plan for but it’s obvious the Pats did. Now the Eagles haters think that game actually means something. It’s preseason fools.

    Why couldn’t he do it in the game that MATTERED ???

  8. Chump. You a QB1, then go out and prove it, ‘steada hidin’ behind a clipboard… chile, pleeze (rolling eyes).

  9. I don’t really get the media’s obsession with Foles. He is a very inconsistent backup who won a Superbowl and not even the first backup to do it. I want to hear about camp battles PFT not about a team that has a loaded QB position.

  10. Can I jut put everything to rest here ,the Cleveland Browns where 4-0 in the preseason last year !

  11. Guess there’s a couple of people on here that didn’t watch the Super Bowl in February. Or realize this is preseason. Or that the Browns went 4-0 in preseason. Or that coaches don’t pull out their playbooks during preseason. Or…

    Might as well stop. Delusion in the northeast can’t be rationalized. Can’t fix stupid. Or arrogance.

    Oh. And the Patriots lost.

    Comment of the day! And that is called TRUTH!

  13. He just wanted out of the game. 3 of 9 for 44 yards for the Super Bowl MVP against a now healthy Pats defense. Historical revulisionists — not to mention the British tabloids — are going to haveca field day with this.

    Belichick tried a bunch of different stuff to see what worked and what didnt. He had not a care how the game came out as long as he learned what he needed to from it. As it perchance happened to be the Pats won. But who cares? Not the Pats for sure. I doubt the Eagles cared either. If Pederson also left with whatever knowledge he was seeking then he too had a successful night and went home happy.

  16. Iam not making this statement in hater mode ,,,I think Nick is looking to preserve himself until he gets paid for the SUPER BOWL MVP thing ,,,it’s starting to set in that he gots to get pizzzzzzzzaaaaaaad ,and a year removed from free agency just might be playing with his head !

    think he’s a bit better than that … was a starter for a couple of years and made the pro bowl.

    pats are healthy on d again and will probably finish close to their #1 ranking in 2016 as sb champs. everyone will forget philly

  21. Can anyone tell me how a poster can state with any confidence that one team “game planned” while their team “didn’t bother to game plan” ?

    Couple things come to mind:

    What is wrong with game planning?

    Does it signify that they’re: a) bad, b) unsporting, c) lame, d) should let the other team win?

    What does it say about a team that doesn’t?

    a) they’re foolish, b) they don’t care, c) they are clueless, d) unmotivated, e) don’t know how?

    My head hurts

  22. Eagles fans, lead by Lame Johnson for a week leading up to the game:
    “The patriots are done, we smoked them in February, and we are gonna smoke them again to make a massive statement”

    Eagles fans midway through the second quarter:
    “It’s just a meaningless preseason game, not sure what the big deal is”

  23. Foles is fine. He didnt even have a preseason last year. He will open against Atlanta, and win that one again, then Wentz will come back week 2 and light it up for the next 18 weeks.

  24. Man some of these giants fans are right. Patriots fans are possibly the biggest cry babies in the NFL. When I was watching the super bowl i was getting annoyed with how little collinsworth knows about the game. When he was complaining about the eagles 2 tds and saying “I give up”, I told my wife that these pats fans are going to be crying all off-season if they lose this game just because collinsworth doesn’t know what the heck he’s talking about. It’s going to give them a reason to cry but I had no idea how bad they would be on here lol. For one, comparing ertz 3 steps and a dive to what Jesse James did when he caught the ball and instantly went down to a knee,is just a horrible comparison. And 2, clement DID have possession but he also got that final left foot down as well. You can see the rubber pellets kicking up, even though collinsworth says he didn’t. It does get a little annoying reading all these pats cry baby comments on every eagles article but it comforts me to know that they’re way more annoyed and miserable and still hurting from that L in the super bowl.

  25. Dilfer DOES NOT = Foles. Good lord people.

    Folds had “it” to win a Super Bowl against a QB who might be the GOAT for having “it” in SB’s.

    I saw it with my own lyin’ eyes.

  26. Does anyone in here actually believe this injury was minor?

    And by the way, Carson Wentz isn’t playing in week 1.

    And I personally have him missing multiple weeks.

    Comment of the day! And that is called TRUTH!

    Another truth is the NE is still living rent free in quite a few places. But yeah, its preseason and the only thing that really matters is how many players a team will lose to injury. Anyone taking this semi-official practice/beer & swag sale as anything more than that needs to get a grip.

  28. Glad the injury is a minor one. Anyone that celebrates anyone getting injured is deranged.

    Preseason games are an exercise mostly with guys you’ll never hear from again. The goal is to work on timing and get in-game reps, and hopefully not get hurt.

    And now after this game you see all the Eagles fans getting mad about Patriots fans gloating, except you dont see any Patriots fans gloating. You just see Eagles fans being mad. Irs obvious that it was Eagles fans treating this game like anything that mattered and Pats fans didnt care so much.

    But to throw Eagles fans a bone Ill point out the possibility that they did too win the game. We actually none of us know exactly what each coach had in mind for what they wanted to learn in that game nor how much each feels like they got it. It is entirely possible that the day was a bigger win for Pedersen than it was for Belichick. We have no way of knowing. But for those that cant stop choking on the final score that possibility is something they can cling to instead and it might help them to feel a little better. And its real.
