Nick Foles of Philadelphia Eagles suffered a shoulder strain in the second quarter of the preseason match against the New England Patriots at Foxborough, Massachusetts.
Patriots defensive end Adrian Clayborn beat Halapoulivaati Vaitai and beat Foles while he entered his throw and let go of the ball. Linebacker Yes & # 39; Whaun Bentley grabbed the fumble and ran 54 yards for a touchdown.
Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz throws the ball harder than he was before tearing the ACL and LCL in his left knee, according to the team's data. Wentz had time to strengthen his upper body during his rehab.
Foles grabbed his limb as he walked to the lawn. He was evaluated in the tent of the coaches before he returned the sideline.
"It was just the shoulder, it was kinda rocked in a weird way as I went through," Foles said. We will check it in more detail tomorrow.
Coach Doug Pederson said that Foles would have played another series if he had not been injured.
Foles said he would get treatment on Friday in Philadelphia, saying he is "optimistic" about how things will turn out.
"I will do anything to get back on the field and hopefully practice the first day we practice again [Sunday]," he said, "and be ready to roll."  Carson Wentz is on the way to recovery from a torn ACL and LCL. He still has to be cleared of contact by the medical staff and said, "It'll be close," when it comes to his availability for week 1 against the Atlanta Falcons. The uncertainty surrounding Wentz's status makes Foles health even more important.
"I'll go in tomorrow and get treated and go from there," Foles said. I hope there are no problems. "
Foles, the reigning Super Bowl MVP, finished 3 of 9 for 44 yards and was dismissed three times in the 37-20 loss to New England third. Quarterback Nate Sudfeld replaced him with the lineup and threw for 312 yards with three touchdowns and an interception.
