Foles likely to get start for Eagles

Wentz, who was planning a return to Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum for the first time since suffering his season-ending injury there previous year, missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday this week.

Wentz saw his rookie season end early a year ago, following a torn ACL.

Pederson made the announcement the next day that Wentz had a back injury that would keep him out of practice.

Philadelphia Eagles' Carson Wentz (11) laughs with Nick Foles (9) and Nate Sudfeld (7) during practice at the NFL football team's facility, Thursday, Dec. 13, 2018, in Philadelphia. Pederson insists there will be no long-term issues for Wentz following his recovery, which should take about three weeks and will not require surgery.

Given that three-month timetable, it seems highly unlikely Wentz will play again this season, especially with the 6-7 Eagles now a longshot to make the postseason.

Kind of like last season, the Philadelphia Eagles' highly-touted quarterback Carson Wentz, goes down in week 12, setting up former Wildcat Nick Foles to step-up in his place. Wentz put all his skills on display against the Washington Redskins last season. "Until you do a scan, you don't know, we do a lot of testing each week on a lot of players".

Because if he was, then he'd have to explain how a quarterback with a fresh diagnosis of a stress fracture can possibly heal in time to play on Sunday night.

Wentz was listed as doubtful for Sunday's game. Foles took over for an injured Wentz late in the season in 2017 and led the Eagles to a dramatic win over the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII for the franchise 's first Super Bowl title.

"But moving forward, we just have to make sure that we do a better job of protecting him, starting with the offensive line, starting with the backs", he said.
