The Facts: Foles is out for at least eight weeks on injured reserve and eligible to return for the Week 11 game against the Colts, and sources say that is the target date for him to be back.
Foles won't be on the sidelines today as his team takes on the Texans, as he is unable to travel per doctor's orders in the wake of surgery to repair his collarbone. Instead, as Gardner Minshew II takes over, Foles will watch from home. As for the shoulder, Foles had a plate and screws utilized while fixing the clavicle to ensure long-term health, and a source told NFL Network's Ian Rapoport it was a clean, straight-forward break. Assuming everything heals properly, he'll begin practicing the week before the Houston game in Week 9, then have the bye, then be back Week 11. In the meantime, Minshew steps into the spotlight. We'll see how that goes in coming weeks.
