Eagles rule four out, including Carson Wentz

The Eagles knew early on that Carson Wentz wasn’t nearly ready to come back, but now it’s official for another week.

Their quarterback who is dealing wih a stress fracture in his back is among the four players ruled out for Sunday’s wild card game against the Bears. Linebacker D.J. Alexander (hamstring), cornerback Sidney Jones (hamstring), and wide receiver Mike Wallace (ankle) were also declared out.

Quarterback Nick Foles practiced fully for the Eagles for the second straight day and isn’t listed on the final report, which should take care of any concerns about his status as he deals with a rib injury.

The Eagles listed four players as questionable: Defensive end Michael Bennett (foot), cornerback Avonte Maddox (oblique), tackle Jason Peters (quadricep), and guard Isaac Seumalo (chest).

Bennett and Seumalo practiced fully Friday, which should put them on the right side of 50-50.

  1. Nick Foles is an absolute blast to watch as a neutral fan. He has moments ( good for him because he has put with a lot) when he looks like one of the top purest passers ever and then can revert to looking like an arena league player the rest of the game. Fascinating

  2. Carson is a quality QB, but Foles is the guy Bear fans don’t want to see on Sunday – but see him they will. Best in the League at avoiding the sack, but that will be put to the test.

  4. Don’t even know why the Eagles continue to hitch their wagon to Wentz.

    Seems like a great guy, but it doesn’t matter how good you are if you can’t play.

    If you’re not durable, you’re not usable.

    Rest up and recuperate Carson, and come back better than ever next season!

    That will likely be an annual statement.

    Surprised Sydney Jones is out again. And disappointed.

    Surprised? A little I guess, he has been seemingly milking it

    Disappointed? Not at all, he’s spent the season getting torched constantly. No interest in seeing him lined up out there in a playoff game

  8. Lots of myths in here about the Eagles QBs so let me dispel them. Carson Wentz isn’t more injury prone than most QBs. McNabb missed quite a bit of games due to injury in his career. So did Cunningham. Brady, Rodgers, and Brees.

    As for Nick Foles outside of the Rams nightmare, he has rarely had a bad game. Google the high variance response to Nick Foles and it proves beyond doubt that the myth of the “hot and cold Nick Foles” is just that: a myth.

    Foles has been consistently good as a starter. Especially in Philadelphia where he has an avg passer rater of 93.5 in his career as an Eagle and a winning record too.

    the bears are an overrated fraud
    try winning against a real team before you punch your ticket to the SB!

    I think this Sunday will say a lot about whether the Bears are overrated, but it’s refreshing to see a Vikes fan not talk trash about the Eagles.

  10. @ The Truth. I laughed hard at the earlier comment about Foles looking like an arena level player at times. When? Certainly not in an Eagles uniform. I don’t count the Jeff Fisher days as he Fisher’ed a number of NFL caliber QB’s. Stop parroting what you hear from so called experts on youtube clips. Foles has never been a hot and cold player. This dude reminds me of a Gregg Rosenthal article on NFL.com at the beginning of the season where he rated Nick Foles as the #32 best QB.

  11. by the posts i see above me thinks the bears fans are a wee bit scared of the super bowl champs.don’t think for one minute the bears team and coaches are feeling the same eay. They have a tough task knocking out the champs lots of pressure on them

    Get over it dude. How can you call them an “overrated fraud” when they were picked to be 3rd or 4th in the division and our team was picked to win the division highhandedly. They won the division uncontested and swept us….the last game of the season was an embarrassment and the Bears definitely proved themselves by knocking us out of the playoffs. Don’t be a sore loser, be glad it isn’t the Packers!
