Eagles coach Doug Pederson expects Nick Foles (elbow) to be ready for Week 1.

Foles has sat out most of camp with elbow soreness, but Pederson doesn't expect the injury to linger into the regular season. It's bad news for Matt McGloin, who faces an uphill battle to make the 53-man roster if Foles is healthy.

Nick Foles (arm) suffered a setback in practice this week.

Foles returned from a two-week absence earlier this week but aggravated his sore arm during a joint practice session with the Dolphins and hasn't seen the field since. He's unlikely to suit up for next week's preseason finale and now Foles may be in a race against the clock to be ready for Week 1. With third-stringer Matt McGloin likely to be released, the Eagles have legitimate depth concerns behind starter Carson Wentz.
Aug 25 - 2:28 PM

Eagles signed Nick Foles, formerly of the Chiefs, to a two-year, $11-million contract.

The deal includes $7 million guaranteed. Foles will be nothing more than a backup in his return to Philadelphia after a two-year hiatus, but this move is interesting because of what it could mean for Chase Daniel. The Eagles were openly trying to trade their (former?) backup before free agency, and bringing in Foles suggests they are close to a deal. Philly could also decide to cut Daniel, but that would net them just $1 million in cap space.
Mar 13 - 8:48 AM

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports there's "mutual interest" between the Bucs and free agent Nick Foles.

Foles would be accepting a strict backup role behind Jameis Winston. It's not a great landing spot, but the Bucs need a No. 2 quarterback after losing Mike Glennon. Foles has been linked to the Jets and Eagles. The Chiefs also haven't ruled out bringing him back.
Mar 10 - 7:02 PM

Chiefs declined Nick Foles' team option, making him a free agent.

That saves the Chiefs $6.75 million. Foles made one start for Kansas City last year, completing 20-of-33 passes for 187 yards and one touchdown in a Week 9 win over Jacksonville. He'll inevitably be linked to the Jets, who are looking for an upgrade on current quarterbacks Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg. NFL Network's Mike Garafolo also said not to rule out a return to Philadelphia, where Foles played from 2012-14, while the Chiefs are reportedly interested in bringing him back at a cheaper price.
Mar 9 - 9:55 AM

Bleacher Report's Ty Dunne expects the Bills to "chug along with a Nick Foles-ish" quarterback in 2017, "and start over."

That means cutting Tyrod Taylor and signing someone like Foles to bridge the gap to a younger quarterback. Owed $6.4 million, Foles is expected to be released by the Chiefs shortly. Dots can connect him to Buffalo, where new QBs coach David Culley was on the Eagles' staff when Foles was drafted and the Chiefs' staff when Kansas City signed Foles last year. Foles turned 28 in January.
Feb 17 - 8:18 PM

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports the Chiefs are expected to decline Nick Foles' team option for 2017.

Most outlets had Foles pegged for a $10.4 million salary for 2017, but Garafolo reports it's actually a more reasonable $6.4 million. Either way, the Chiefs aren't likely to pick it up, which would make Foles a free agent. It would save the Chiefs $6.75 million in cap space. Foles bombed out in his short time with the Rams in 2015 but looked good in limited work with the Chiefs last season, completing 36-of-55 passes (65.5 percent) for 410 yards (7.5 YPA) and a 3:0 TD:INT ratio. He could be a candidate to start somewhere come Week 1.
Feb 15 - 11:01 AM

Nick Foles could be a cap casualty this offseason.

Foles is due a non-guaranteed $10.75 million in 2017. He'll either be released or need to take a pay cut. The Chiefs have just $4.1M in projected cap space.
Feb 4 - 6:20 PM

Chiefs backup QB Nick Foles (elbow) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

The injury is to his right (throwing) arm. With Alex Smith returning this week, Foles' status isn't a Week 10 concern.

Nick Foles completed 20-of-33 passes for 187 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions and rushed three times for a loss of three yards Sunday in the Chiefs' Week 9 win over the Jaguars.

He was also sacked twice for a loss of 18 yards. Foles did the bare minimum to get by on Sunday. His accuracy was non-existent and the only receiver he showed any measure of chemistry with was tight end Travis Kelce (five catches for 58 yards on seven targets). Predictably, Kelce was ejected for throwing his towel at an official early in the fourth quarter. Foles’ only touchdown came in the first quarter on a 23-yard strike to Albert Wilson, who blew past Jags linebacker Telvin Smith for an easy score. Tasked with killing clock in the fourth quarter, Foles threw an inexplicable incompletion with just over three minutes left and followed that up by getting sacked for a 13-yard loss. We’re guessing Foles will be back holding the clipboard for Alex Smith (concussion) next week when the Chiefs travel to Carolina.

Coach Andy Reid announced Nick Foles will start Week 9 against the Jaguars.

Alex Smith is supposedly symptom-free of the concussion he allegedly didn't even suffer, but he's in the "return to play" protocol. It's all a confusing situation, but the Chiefs took a ton of heat for putting Smith back in the game this past Sunday after his head was slammed to the Lucas Oil Stadium turf. He seemed to barely even know where he was after the hit. Foles isn't much of a downgrade from Smith. His main job will be to hand the ball off to the running back.
Wed, Nov 2, 2016 12:54:00 PM

Nick Foles completed 16-of-22 passes for 223 yards and two touchdowns in Kansas City's Week 8 win over the Colts.

Foles finished the game after Alex Smith left with a concussion in the second quarter. His touchdowns went to Jeremy Maclin and Tyreek Hill. Foles could start next week if Smith doesn't get cleared, but isn't on the streamer radar.

Chiefs signed QB Nick Foles.

ESPN's Adam Schefter linked the Chiefs to Foles earlier Wednesday, and the two sides quickly struck a deal to reunite Foles with Andy Reid. In 2012, Foles was drafted by Reid's Eagles at No. 88 overall. He started six games for Reid that year, completing 60.8 percent of his passes with a 6:5 TD:INT ratio. Foles gives the Chiefs a quality No. 2 to Alex Smith. The Foles signing gives the Chiefs flexibility to carry only two quarterbacks on their 53-man roster if none of Tyler Bray, Aaron Murray, and Kevin Hogan steps up.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Chiefs are a "sleeper" team to sign free agent Nick Foles.

This gives the Cowboys some competition. Andy Reid drafted Foles in the third round in Philadelphia, and the Chiefs never did replace Chase Daniel. Perhaps Aaron Murray, Kevin Hogan, and Tyler Bray aren't cutting it in camp.
