Nick Foles Exits With Injury

NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Nick Foles exited for the locker room early in the fourth quarter. He is being evaluated for a head injury and will not return.

The second-year quarterback took a hit from Dallas defensive ends Jarius Wynn and George Selvie near the Eagles sideline for a sack on third down late in the third quarter. He was slow to his feet but eventually walked off in his own.


After being evaluated by the trainers Foles walked into the tunnel. Matt Barkley immediately began warming up.

Michael Vick (hamstring) is not active. James Casey is the emergency quarterback.

More info as it becomes available.

    Season: Over

    • GEAGLE

      Idiot,,.let the over reaction begin..”god I hate sharing this team with this fanbase

      • TruthHurts

        Your over reaction to bench Vick and start Foles is just as pathetic. Back to your hole GEagle where you belong with the rest of the Foles butt bandits

      • Shart

        obviously you’re not a beerleaguer/phillies phan. ever heard the phrase “tongue in cheek”?

    • G_WallyHunter

      Can maybe get a top 4 pick if TB NYG Jax keep it up

  • N

    Chip…..where is your offense

  • N

    Cut Matt Barkley

    • G_WallyHunter

      Agreed, looked terrible, bad move bad draft trade gawd dang today sucked…. like I said… very humbling after this intriguing 2 win streak.

  • GEAGLE

    Bad game all around offensively,,,starting with Chip, FOles, Herremans! the Oline in the run game, shady, every single WR and TE….tough game, but even during the big wins we should know that this will be a ROLLERCOASTER..

    defense is coming together beautifully. THey took a giant step forward this week? surprise surprise Billy Davis isn’t a liar. they have been making gradual improvements the past couple of weeks, but today was a huge step forward. Shocker a young and new defense is improving as it gets games under its belt..

    I expect there to be games like this in 2013 regardless of who is on the he field, so I surprisingly take the losses much better then I ever have. but man does it sting when it happens against Dallas, continuing the streak of home losses by an average of 10 points,.

    Doubt Dallas can beat us twice this year, division games are just too weird???if that stands true! the silver lining is the next time we play them is the last game of The season on the road where we are actually COMPETANT,,,and knowing this division it very well could come down to the wire..

    Don’t think it was realistic to think we would beat the cowboys this year…and big picture, if you can only have one win, it would certainly have to be the last game of the year….tough day….Huge test this week seeing how we rebound from a loss that is going to have our guys dejected this week in practice..because we have a winniable opponent in the Giants, I think it’s going to tell a lot about the Charecter of This team. Losing this game at home will really hurt our guys..how they persevere this week will be huge

    • TruthHurts

      If Foles starts again, like you have been whining for all year, then this is what we can expect.

      Vick starts, and we win. No doubt about, Foles has no where near the talent and execution that Vick has.

      You whine about sharing a fan base with peeps claiming the season is over. You and many others on this board are just as bad claiming Foles the next Eagles QB god! Go back to your other screen name, whatever the hell it is, because it is much better without your dumbass comments on here.

        LOL, when Foles was doing well, it was “small sample size!!” But as soon as he has an awful game, it’s “That’s the REAL Foles!!”

        • http://abigbuttandasmile.com/ A Big Butt and a Smile

          This game kind kills the sample size argument. This was beyond bad. Just awful.

          • BlindChow

            Of course you would say that, but that’s not how “sample size” works. You can’t define his future from this one awful game any more than you can from his great game last week, I mean, unless you had some sort of theoretical anti-Foles agenda.

            His career average is much closer to the middle than either of these extremes.

    INJURY PRONE!!!!
    LMFAO

    • JofreyRice

      I mean if you put up a ratio in starts vs. starts missed due to injury, I think Nick might have a worse injury prone record than Vick–albeit with a tiny sample size.

      The way he played today, he can nurse that till next year.

        Um…nice edit cause your 1st try at a reply was a fail!!!

        • 1972

          lol I just erased what I wrote because that reply wasn’t for you. My bad

          • RIP illa

            It’s all good

  • Addicted2Mula

    For those who screamed Foles to start what now? I think we needed Vicc for this game

    • G_WallyHunter

      Please Vick come back. can’t blame all on Foles, obviously receivers just can’t get outta man… seemed like oline had decent coverage most the game Foles kept gettin coverage sacks… Receivers can’t beat coverage and we get this

      • Addicted2Mula

        And if you saw one of my comments on another post i said lets see how Foles does against man. And yes all the blame is not on.Foles

        • G_WallyHunter

          Yup, whatever the way it is, see what happens next week. This ain’t on Foles tho, offense was crap and mismatched all game

      • BlindChow

        Foles missed open receivers all game. Just like Vick was doing before he got injured. At least Vick can run for first downs occasionally.

        • G_WallyHunter

          One word to describe today Humbling.

    • BlindChow

      Yeah, if we wanted a QB who’d complete less than 50% of his passes and couldn’t run, we could have just played Gimpy Vick.

  • BleedGreenJames

    I might get chastised for this, but the Eagles need to do whatever necessary to acquire Mariota. If it means sending a Washington-esque deal to someone then so be it. We need a franchise QB and Mariota would run this offense to its absolute maximum. I’ve thought long and hard about it, and I know how valuable draft picks are, but I’m ready to say screw it, build the D later, and go and grab Mariota, that kid is the truth.
