Nick Foles is day-to-day with hip/gluteus injury

Fortunately, it looked far worse than it turned out to be.

Bears quarterback Nick Foles is day-to-day with an injury to his right hip and gluteus maximus. Coach Matt Nagy provided the update late Tuesday morning.

On the first play of Chicago’s final drive of the game, Foles was thrown hard to the ground after throwing an incomplete pass. Foles seemed to be badly hurt, laying motionless before eventually being carted off.

With Mitch Trubisky out due to a shoulder injury, Tyler Bray replaced Foles.

The lanky signal-caller routinely takes a pounding, fearlessly standing in the pocket behind blockers who often fail to protect him from contact.

The Bears have their annual bye in Week 11. The next play the Packers in Green Bay on Sunday night of Thanksgiving weekend.

  1. You know it’s bad when I’d rather listen to Chris Berman recycle his 30 year-old schtick for the 50 year-old sports Bros with their baseball caps on backwards than go back to the Bears game.
    It’s bad people. So bad.

  2. A cherry on top, for the raging dumpster fire in Chicago. It’s amazing to me that so many of these guys in the front office still have jobs.

  3. They might want to shut him down after last night. He looked AWFUL. He was able to get lucky and catch lightning in a bottle in Philly, but really all he is good for is a backup roll.

  4. Those Bears fans sure are taking their time, stuffing their mouths with meatballs and Italian sausage, since they can’t say much at all these days.

  5. I know that the game announcers are supposed to stay neutral but I am so sick of hearing them say “when the Chicago offense gets on a role” to stretch interest in a really dull game. What we’ve seen is the role the last 4 games and even in victory they looked terrible. Put Chicago on the Direct TV pkg. only line so masochists’ can still get their fix

    He’s a pocket QB with NO pocket. Every 3rd down by time he finished his drop back, they were already in his face. By time he got the ball in the shotgun there was already a free runner two steps away. They can’t even run the ball or screen successfully cause the Oline broke down half the time. Football starts and ends with your offensive line. Only a handful of QBs have been able to carry a team without one, Russell Wilson being one of them.

    Even the early throws Foles missed, anybody can tell that it was a timing issue. If you’ve been playing for weeks behind a very bad line what tends to happen is the QB will rush the throw based on that precedent as they can’t trust them. If you can’t protect then you’re in for a long season.

  7. If it’s a serious injury, like Andrew Luck or Alex Smith, it may just be a sign to call it a day and retire. Nick Foles had a good SB run but has never show the ability to win consistently, before and after his SB year. Take your SB MVP and all the money you’ve made and enjoy the next chapter of your life unimpaired.

  8. His not being able to come back may be a blessing for the bears. He cannot avoid the rush with his legs and once he sees the rush he rushes his throws or tosses the ball away. It was way to easy for the vikes d last night He was the gift that kept on giving.
    A lot of the blame came on not having a run game any team fears. They are playing pass all the way and he is playing into their plans. Time to think of retiring pal

  9. Maybe put Foles behind a competent O-line and the whole offense will look better…just sayin’. How’s Jacksonville playing, by the way…

  10. There’s not an either/or here when it comes to fingering blame on Foles vs. the O-Line: they’re both to blame.

    That said, when you have no running game and your QB not only can’t lead his receivers but STARES THEM DOWN FROM THE MOMENT HE GET THE BALL, u doomed.

    Are you saying Mitch should be starting, as he does a lot better behind the same line, or that the Bears should’ve used their two first round picks and $20 plus million a season on their offensive line instead of Mack?
