A source tells NJ.com that the Rams have interest in Nick Foles if the Eagles decide to trade him this offseason.
Foles is 14-4 as a starter over the last two seasons, but there's plenty of reason to believe he is not Chip Kelly's guy for the long haul. Kelly inherited Foles, he prefers a mobile quarterback, Foles regressed sharply as a thrower in Year 2 and the Eagles could be plotting a move up in the draft for Oregon QB Marcus Mariota. According to NJ.com, the QB-desperate Titans and Texans would also have interest in Foles, who has one year remaining on his rookie contract. The Rams have already said Sam Bradford (ACL surgery) will face competition in training camp. Jan 26 - 10:36 AM

Speaking Wednesday, coach Chip Kelly declined to give Nick Foles a full endorsement.

Kelly said he'll go through a long evaluation process on all his players, including Foles. He's not going to name him his starter even though Foles is 14-4 over his last 18 starts under Kelly. That's because he was shaky this season, turning the ball over 13 times in just over seven games and completing 59.8 percent of his passes. The problem for the Eagles is that they're unlikely to find serious competition for Foles unless they mortgage their future to move up in the draft for Marcus Mariota or Jameis Winston. Foles, heading into the final year of his rookie contract, is the heavy favorite to open 2015 as the Eagles' starting quarterback.

Nick Foles (collarbone) has been ruled out for Week 17.

Coach Chip Kelly has already said that Mark Sanchez will remain under center against the Giants, and that the team won't be turning to Matt Barkley. It means Foles closes the book on 2014 having played zero snaps after November 2, and the owner of a 13:10 TD:INT ratio and 81.4 QB rating through eight starts. Foles will enter the offseason as the favorite for 2015 duties, but the Eagles will undoubtedly search for alternatives. It's just a matter of if they can find a better option.

FOX Philadelphia's Howard Eskin reports Nick Foles' collarbone is just 70 percent healed.

Eskin's report has been seconded by FOX Sports' Mike Garofolo. It means there's no way Foles will return before the end of the regular season, and that he'll likely be questionable for a potential Wild Card appearance. The Eagles' hopes of a division championship are pinned to the scattershot arm and decision-making of Mark Sanchez.

Coach Chip Kelly announced Nick Foles (collarbone) has already been ruled out for Week 16 against the Redskins.

A Week 16 return was always viewed as a best-case scenario for Foles. Mark Sanchez will get at least one more start and will look to take advantage of a suspect Redskins pass defense that has been torched by anyone and everyone in 2014. Matt Barkley isn't an option. Consider Foles week to week at this point.

Nick Foles (collarbone) is due for a follow-up exam next week.

It's been five weeks since Foles broke his collarbone. He's hoping to get cleared to practice following this week's showdown with the Cowboys, but that's far from a guarantee. It's also unclear if Foles would even get his job back from Mark Sanchez if cleared before the end of the season.

Eagles declared QB Nick Foles, CB Roc Carmichael, DB Jaylen Watkins, TE Trey Burton, C Julian Vandervelde, OT Dennis Kelly and DE Taylor Hart inactive for Week 14 against the Seahawks.

Foles remains week to week, but it's not a guarantee he'll reclaim his starting job from Mark Sanchez.

Nick Foles' broken left collarbone is "not totally healed."

Speaking Monday, Eagles coach Chip Kelly said Foles is healing on schedule, but didn't elaborate on when he might be cleared. Foles is progressing at the exact same rate Aaron Rodgers did last season. The earliest he's likely to return is Week 16, but even that will be dependent on how Mark Sanchez is playing. There's no point in holding onto Foles in re-draft leagues.

Nick Foles' (collarbone) four-week followup CT scan revealed the injury is healing normally.

He's been cleared to step up strengthening exercises with an eye toward full clearance in 2-4 weeks. Foles still can't take a hit at the moment. Anything can change, but Mark Sanchez is coming off a strong start on Thanksgiving and has led the Eagles to a 3-1 record across four games under center. He has more athleticism than Foles and has run the offense perfectly. A lot is going to depend on how Sanchez fares over his next couple starts, but it appears Foles will be cleared before the regular season is through.

Nick Foles (broken left collarbone) will undergo a CT scan on Friday.

According to reporter Les Bowen, Foles is "feeling markedly less tenderness every day," and his "strength is improving." A source tells Bowen there's "no reason" to believe Foles will be sidelined longer than his 6-8 week timetable. It's been 25 days since Foles went down against the Texans. It appears there's a chance he could return before the regular season is through, though a lot of that depends on how Mark Sanchez fares over his next 1-2 starts.

Sources close to the situation tell the Philly Inquirer that Nick Foles' (collarbone) best case scenario would be a Week 16 return.

Foles will have a followup appointment next week. The Philly Inquirer's Jeff McLane reports Foles' initial timetable of 6-8 weeks was likely on the optimistic side, and the collarbone must be "more than" fully healed in order to prevent against doing further damage to the bone. As Mark Sanchez has become increasingly turnover prone the more he's played, the chances have increased of Foles regaining his starting quarterback job when healthy.

Nick Foles (broken collarbone) is due for a follow-up appointment either this week or next.

The absolute best-case scenario for Foles was thought to be a six-week recovery timetable following his Nov. 2 fracture. That means Week 14, although no one is really expecting that. We also don't know if Foles will even get his starting job back at that point as he wasn't playing at a very high level prior to the injury. Replacement Mark Sanchez has been equally mediocre, but is 2-1 as the starter with three 300-yard games.

Eagles declared QB Nick Foles, S Earl Wolff, S Jaylen Watkins, OL Julian Vandervelde, OL Dennis Kelly, WR Jeff Maehl, and DE Taylor Hart inactive for Week 10 against the Panthers.

Mark Sanchez gets the start in place of Foles (broken collarbone), who may not be back this season. Wolff started last week. Chris Prosinski is active over him.

The Newark Star-Ledger reports members in the Eagles organization, including GM Howie Roseman, had "soured" on Nick Foles even before he broke his collarbone in Week 9.

"I think Howie is looking at quarterbacks," a league source told NJ.com. "He's kind of soured on Foles, and I don't think he's alone. The organization isn't sold that he's the guy going forward. Let's just say the way things were going, he wasn't going to get a contract extension that's for sure." Foles is eligible for an extension in the offseason. After posting a ridiculous 27:2 TD:INT ratio across 13 games and 10 starts last season, Foles took a step back before getting hurt. He's tossed the second-most interceptions (10) behind only Blake Bortles and is averaging a weak 6.9 YPA. We're not sold on Foles being the quarterback of the future anywhere, let alone Philadelphia. Andy Reid and Marty Mornhinweg drafted Foles.

FOX Sports' Mike Garafolo reports Nick Foles does not need surgery on his "cracked" collarbone, and the Eagles "hope" he can return in six weeks.

A six-week timetable would put Foles' projected return date at Week 16, depending on Foles' healing process. Mark Sanchez will be the Eagles' starter until that point, and should not have trouble offering top-12 fantasy quarterback production in the meantime in a talented, up-tempo attack designed by offensive mastermind Chip Kelly. Foles is safe to drop in 12- and 14-team fantasy leagues. Sanchez should be rostered everywhere.
