News you need to know
From Mark Wimer's Monday injury report (Mon Dec 15): Foles remains out of practices and games until his collarbone is fully healed and he is back in game shape.
General News (Wed Dec 17): is out for this week's game.
General News (Tue Dec 16): has been ruled out for Week 16, because his collarbone is not completely healed, according to head coach Chip Kelly. Further, Foles is reportedly only 70 percent healed. He will not play again during the regular season.
Week 16: at Washington Redskins
Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. The Eagles are in second place in the NFC East, one back of Dallas with two games to go - nobody has locked up the division yet, though, so this game against Washington is crucial for the Eagles, who have lost two straight games including the loss to Dallas last week. Back in Week Three, Nick Foles was slinging the football for Chip Kelly, but he wasn't cleared to resume football activities during a checkup last week (broken collarbone), so Mark Sanchez will start in this Week 16 renewal of the NFC East rivalry. Speaking of Sanchez, he's cooled down of late, throwing two interceptions and zero TDs for the Eagles vs. Dallas last week (17/28 for 252 yards passing). He relies on Jeremy Maclin (six targets for 4/98/0 receiving vs. Dallas last week) and Brent Celek (six for 4/52/0) pretty heavily these days - Jordan Matthews is falling off the radar and had just one target for zero catches last week (he tweaked a knee but returned to the game, albeit to little effect). The Washington pass D gave up 23/34 for 238 net yards, three TDs and zero interceptions to Eli Manning last week (one sack for -12 yards), and Shuan Hill threw two TDs and zero interceptions at Washington two weeks ago (16/22 for 198 net yards, with four sacks taken for -15 yards). Washington has allowed the second-most TD passes this year with 31 given up and is tied for next-to-last in the NFL with only five interceptions generated. They are 17th in the NFL averaging 237.9 net passing yards allowed, and have 33 sacks this season (tied for 16th in the NFL). This is a good matchup for Sanchez and company - they should rebound against the suspect Washington secondary.
