Bruce Arians is expected to be released from the hospital “any moment” after being treated for an inner-ear infection, according to his agent, Mike Brown.
Arians, who stepped in for Chuck Pagano and guided the Colts to an 11-5 record this season, got sick this week and was forced to miss Sunday’s 24-9 playoff loss to the Ravens.
The Eagles have requested permission to interview the Colts offensive coordinator but had yet to reach out to the Arians camp to set up an interview time as of late Monday morning, according to Brown. Arians is expected to be back in Indianapolis by this evening and will likely sit down on Tuesday and go over the list of interested teams to formulate a plan. The anticipation is that the interview process will be “in full swing” by Thursday.
Would the hiring of Chip Kelly in Philadelphia take Nick Foles out of the quarterback equation?
Ron Jaworksi seems to think so.
“Nick Foles will not run a Chip Kelly offense if he decided to come here, rest assured of that,” Jaws told Jon Marks and Sean Brace on 97.5 The Fanatic. “If a coach like Chip Kelly…that runs this up-tempo, spread, speed-style option, these guys come here, there might be a future for Michael Vick. I know he’s , I know he’s been beat up, but I’ll tell you, some of the things I’m seeing, Michael Vick can do the same things these guys are doing in the spread option.”
