Eagles quarterback Nick Foles said Wednesday he was feeling better by the day, and the team’s injury report confirms that.

After being limited in Wednesday’s practice, Foles returned to being a full participant Thursday.

He is expected to play Sunday after being knocked out of last week’s game with a rib injury.

Center Jason Kelce (knee) also returned to a full practice Thursday.

Linebacker D.J. Alexander (hamstring), defensive end Michael Bennett (foot), cornerback Sidney Jones (hamstring) and quarterback Carson Wentz (back) did not participate.

Defensive tackle Fletcher Cox (knee), left tackle Jason Peters (quadricep), offensive guard Isaac Seumalo (chest) and receiver Mike Wallace (ankle) remained limited. Cornerback Avonte Maddox (oblique) and running back Wendell Smallwood (hand) were added to the injury report as limited participants.

    Pederson, Foles>>>>>Nagy, Trubisky

    ————————–

    You can’t accurately say that yet, no way.

    The Bears defense is what will be competing against Pederson and Foles. Did you even watch the Rams or my Vikings play the Bears this season. You are in for a very rude awakening especially with that pumped up Chicago crowd.

  2. Uh, oh Bears fans…Prepare for some Nick Foles magic! Eagles in an upset!

    I dunno… I’m a Bears fan and even I would admit that this is a game that the “same old Bears” had a very high chance of piddling down their leg. But these aren’t the same old Bears. The change in culture that Nagy has brought in is palpable, and there is stronger player leadership on both sides of the ball than any time I can remember since the days of Lovie with Urlacher, Peanut and Briggs in their prime. They’ve had 4 close losses to learn from in the regular season and absent a few injuries, appear to have a good amount of momentum.

    I’m optimistic — cautiously — that the Bears will handle their business on Sunday.

  3. I like when Eagles fans talk about how Nick Foles has a better passer rating than Tom Brady and a host of others. Let’s see what that passer rating looks like after another 15 or so playoff games and let him get another 1 or 2 championships under his belt before we start comparing him to the all-time greats. Right now, he’s just a guy who has played over his head during his short 4 game playoff career. If he goes to the Super Bowl this year and wins, I’ll start believing that there is something special about him.

  4. Should be on heckuva game. The Bears are a very very good team with a good defense and a pretty good offense. But you know what I think the Bears are alot like last years Rams an up and coming team who lit up the regular season last year(same record as the Bears had this year(12-4) The Rams got beat in the wildcard weekend last year by the Falcons and the Rams were home. What this tells is that the Falcons were in the super bowl the previous yra (lost to the Pats) and the Eagles won the super bowl last year. This being said the Eagles have the playoff pressure experience to survive and the Bears yes they are a good team especially at home but lacking the playoff pressure that comes with the playoffs. Trubisky is a young second year QB as was Goff with the rams last year. lots of parallels i see with this game comparing it to the rams falcons last year rams were favorites as are the bears Falcons had the playoff experience where the Rams did not and the same here with this game.Its gonna be a good one.

  5. Foles…. just like any QB, don’t give him time to throw and watch him rush those passes into E Jackson, and K Fullers hands. Sorry Eagles, not happening this year.

    Uh-huh…and the Eagles front 7 is going to take the day off, give Trubisky all the time he wants, and have a picnic right there on Soldier Field instead of coming to play…

  7. Aside from last year’s success, he set or tied 3 regular season records and was the top rated passer from 2013…including being voted to the Pro Bowl.
