Nick Foles expects to be good to go on game day

Nick Foles isn’t going to let a little soreness in his ribs stop him from playing in the postseason.

The Eagles quarterback said Wednesday he expects to be “feeling great” by game day.

“Yeah, a little bit of soreness, but every day drastically improving,” Foles said, via video from the team. “A lot of time working on recovery, getting ready for this game. But I feel great. We just did the first part of our day. I was able to move around a little bit and feel really good.”

Foles said he will wear his normal stuff plus “maybe a little bit in there just for a little bit more” protection.

“I want to be able to function and move around,” Foles said.

Foles missed the final 10 snaps of Sunday’s victory over Washington after taking a hard hit by Ryan Kerrigan.

  1. Eagles should do right by Nick and give him that $1M bonus that he just missed. He is the main reason they won the SB last year and are back in the playoffs this year. Take it out of Wentz’s salary.

    While I agree in principle, they did give him a raise this year when they didn’t have to at all. They’ll give him the bonus though, I’m sure of it since he’ll be playing playoff snaps and presuming he plays the entire game against the Bears, he’ll be over his metric for the entire season, even if his contract states for regular season only.

  3. But who’s gonna be the backup?

    @blessedunliketherest
    Chris Long was paid after donating his salary last year.
    Dorenbos was given a SB ring.
    Lurie has worked hard to raise millions for Autism.
    Don’t be so shocked if they cut him some slack.

  4. That Chicago defense is legit. If Foles gets hit early, his ribs will certainly bother him all day. Not to mention the crowd noise frigid temperatures of soldier field. Even without the benefit of the sun since it’s a night game. The Eagles backed into the playoffs due to other teams losing.

    Look for Chicago to own this cake walk all afternoon. I’d expect Foles to throw no fewer than two interceptions.

  5. I love how Eagles fans are riding Nick Foles now, after they were so quick to toss him to the side as soon as Wentz was healthy…. Even the head coach keeps disrespecting the man by going out of his way every chance he gets to publicly proclaim that Wentz is their starting QB no matter what. Look I get it, Wentz is the more talented player yes, but after what Foles came in and did for them at least show him some respect.

  6. The “frigid temperatures of Soldier Field.”

    The forecast calls for a high of 43. I’d hardly call that frigid.

  7. The Foles Factor! Definitely a winnable game as long as BDN is feeling alright. Da Bears D is legit, but Philly is used to being the underdogs. They take it and embrace it ! Regardless of the outcome, it should be a good tight game. Go Iggles!

  8. Stating the obvious here but Eagles have to maintain the rushing attack all game long to take some of the pressure off Foles. Many like Josh Adams but I think you roll with Smallwood/Sproles all game. They’re both a better fit if you’re using the RPO and screen plays. All I’ve seen lately from Adams is him getting stuffed a yard past the line of scrimmage.

  9. Chicago fans proclaiming their defense will win this game and maybe they might but their offense is lame and the Eagles get any kind of early lead it’s on to New Orleans. This Eagle teams defense has come alive with sacks and turnovers the last six games. Their secondary, defensive line and middle linebacker are healthy. Their offense is now scoring between 24/34. If refs call a netural game Eagles will embarrass this Chicago team. Last years champions are playing like last year.

    Jeez, I guess the Eagles should just stay home then…
