Eagles quarterback Nick Foles is slowly making his way back, and his path to a return to the field seemed to take another step forward on Wednesday. Foles took part in a team drill at the beginning of practice on Wednesday, the first time he has taken part in the light drill since he injured his collarbone.
Foles did not have a helmet on during the drill as the team practiced inside of the bubble at the NovaCare Complex, meaning he will still likely be listed as "out" on the official practice report released by the team. Still, Foles has clearly started to up his workload over the past week, both with the team and on the sideline with trainers and coaches.
The team slowly starting to work Foles back into practice means the quarterback is getting closer and closer to being ready to play. HC Chip Kelly has said multiple times that Foles is working hard to return when healthy, but he has not guaranteed that the quarterback would start over Mark Sanchez when he does get clearance from the doctors to play.
Sanchez has played relatively well since taking over as the starter. He's the #8 fantasy QB since Week 10, which was his first start. How he performs this week against the Cowboys will go a long way towards determining his short-term status as the Eagles' starter.
