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. Wed, Nov 9, 2016 06:24:00 PM

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.

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.

Cowboys executive VP Stephen Jones confirmed he's "had talks" with free agent Nick Foles.

Jones also said the Cowboys are exploring potential trades. With Kellen Moore going down with a fractured fibula on Tuesday, Dallas wants to get a new No. 2 quarterback in the building quickly so he has time to pick up the offense. Odds are heavily in Foles' favor, since he won't cost Dallas a draft pick.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports the Cowboys are one of a "handful of teams" interested in free agent Nick Foles, and he could sign as early as Wednesday.

The Cowboys are the only team with any concrete reports showing their interest. They could be bidding against themselves, as Foles' agent could have leaked this info to get his client signed sooner rather than later.

ESPN's Ed Werder reports the Cowboys are "considering" signing free agent Nick Foles, but will also explore the trade market for a backup quarterback.

Foles' agent also represents coach Jason Garrett, OC Scott Linehan, and Tony Romo, so he's done plenty of business with Dallas. It makes too much sense not to happen, but the Cowboys also want to poke around and see what else is available. Josh McCown and Mike Glennon were mentioned as potential trade options. Signing Foles just costs money, not trading away a draft pick.

49ers coach Chip Kelly said he is not interested in signing free agent QB Nick Foles.

"I’m a big fan of Nick, but right now our eggs are in Kap and Blaine’s basket," Kelly said, "and we’re going to see what those guys can do." Foles had his one good season as a starter with Kelly in Philadelphia, but the coach decided to trade him and some picks for Sam Bradford last offseason. The Cowboys, Bills, and Broncos have also said they are not interested. At this point, the Vikings may be Foles' only option.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said the team is not considering free agent Nick Foles.

That's three teams—the Cowboys, Bills and Broncos—who have already turned him down. It's obviously not a great sign that the Cowboys prefer undrafted backup Kellen Moore over Foles. The Vikings could kick the tires on Foles now that backup Taylor Heinicke is out with a foot injury.

ESPN 1500 Twin Cities' Patrick Reusse is "hearing" free agent Nick Foles has been promised a chance to compete for the starting job if he signs with the Vikings.

Yeah, no. Even if that's something that's being whispered to Foles' agent behind the scenes, it has no practical bearing on reality. Teddy Bridgewater isn't exactly an upper-echelon starter, but he's well established as being better than Foles. Few things generate more fanciful scenarios than backup-quality quarterbacks.

The Buffalo News' Vic Carucci reports the Bills are not interested in free agent QB Nick Foles.

Bleacher Report's Jason Cole linked Foles with the Bills, Vikings, and Cowboys yesterday. The Bills are already out of the running, and Broncos coach Gary Kubiak confirmed his team will not pursue Foles either. Desperate for a viable backup, the Cowboys would make a lot of sense.

Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said the team is not interested in free agent QB Nick Foles.

The Broncos have serious questions at quarterback, with Mark Sanchez struggling to beat out seventh-round sophomore Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch well of the pace. Even so, they rightly have no interest in a quarterback who was benched for Case Keenum. Josh McCown would be a much better target for Denver.

Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reports the Bills, Vikings, and Cowboys are free agent Nick Foles' three likeliest destinations.

Cole also reports the Jets showed interest in Foles, which may have played a role in Ryan Fitzpatrick re-signing with New York. Dallas would make a lot of sense as a Foles landing spot. Kellen Moore was out of his depth as a 2015 spot starter, and fourth-round rookie Dak Prescott isn't ready to play in the NFL.
