NFC East Notes: Nick Foles, Eagles, Redskins


Nick Foles

Eagles QB Nick Foles told reporters that his throwing shoulder is “a little strained” and he plans to get treatment on injury Friday.

“I was getting ready to throw a deep ball and it got grabbed as I was following on through, so it sort of got a little strained,” Foles said, via Pro Football Talk. “So, you know, I was with the trainers, I’ll go in tomorrow and get treatment on it and sort of go from there. But it feels all right, feels pretty good. Hopefully there’s no issues.

“[W]hen you’re following on through on a deep ball and somebody grabs your arm when you’re going, it’s not the best feeling,” Foles added. “But I feel optimistic about it and I’m excited to get into treatment tomorrow and just get this thing moving forward.

Ian Rapoport reports that tests on Foles’ shoulder determined that he’s okay and they don’t expect any prolonged recovery.


  • Les Bowen says that Foles’ injury doesn’t make Carson Wentz any more likely to start the opener.
  • Bowen adds that there’s “pretty much no way” any team trades for Foles with an injured throwing shoulder.
  • Tom Pelissero reports that Eagles WR Bryce Treggs is expected to miss a few weeks with a hamstring strain, which puts him right up against the opener.


  • Redskins RB Samaje Perine was seen in a walking boot after Thursday’s game, but HC Jay Gruden downplayed the severity of the injury: “Looks like it was OK. Twisted ankle for Samaje.” (Pro Football Talk)
  • However, Mike Garafolo reports that Perine expected to miss some time with an ankle sprain. According to Garafolo, Perine is likely out at least a week at least, so the Redskins will need to add some camp bodies at some point.
  • Redskins RB Byron Marshall is expected to miss 2-4 weeks with an ankle injury. (NFLTR)
