Nick Foles Avoids ‘Major Injury’ in Loss to Vikings
Nick Foles was under pressure the entire game on Monday night, completing just one pass for over ten yards on nine attempts. It was no surprise when he got tossed to the ground on the Chicago Bears final possession. What was a surprise was when he was unceremoniously carted off the field afterward.
Early indications from the Bears are that Foles has avoided a major injury with initial tests indicating there is not a fracture in his hip. He’ll undergo further evaluation today to determine the nature and extent of the injury.

Once the Bears get more information on the nature of Foles’ injury we’ll know when he will be available to return. The Bears have a bye and then face off against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday Night Football on November 29.
