Nick Foles' collarbone healing normally - [Full Article]

Eagles QB Nick Foles' 4-week followup CT scan showed the quarterback's left collarbone is healing normally, a source close to the situation said. The source said Foles can't take a hit yet, but he can step up strengthening exercises, with an eye toward full clearance 6 to 8 weeks from the Nov. 2 break. The source stressed that more healing must take place before Foles is cleared to take a hit.

Of course, Mark Sanchez' error-free performance against Dallas made it look unlikely, for now, that the starting job will be available when Foles returns, though, in an ideal world, before deciding on a quarterback for 2015, the Eagles would be able to get a look at Foles behind this offensive line, with the once-again powerful run game that helped Foles perform so well in 2013.

Fantasy Impact: 

Sanchez has been up and down but as the story said, his most recent performance against Dallas certainly won't cost him the starting job right now. But, Foles still has a way to go, so for now Sanchez is providing owners with at least low-end QB1 numbers.
