This morning, it was revealed that Colts QB Carson Wentz had surgery on the foot that has been bothering him in training camp. He will miss 5-12 weeks, which could put him in the range of being back in time for Indy for their Week 1 season opener Seattle, or not until the halfway point of the season.
Nick Foles’ name has been trending now and is the talk of trade rumors online, after Wentz went down. Foles is currently on the Bears, and was Wentz’s backup QB in Philly, where he stepped in for Wentz after suffering a torn ACL in the 2017 season. Foles went on to lead the Eagles to a Super Bowl win, and was the MVP of that game.
Foles is now speaking out about the trade rumors, as well as Wentz and Coach Frank Reich. He added that he hasn’t spoken to anyone about a trade right now either.
“Listen, Frank Reich is one of my favorite, if not my favorite, coaches of all time. He understands me as a player,” Foles said. “He understands me as a person. But you know, I haven’t had any talks with them. I’m a Chicago Bear right now. But he knows me, he understands“In this league, I don’t want to go to someone that I don’t know. I don’t want to … Listen, great coaches, when you have a great coaching staff, it’s something special,” Foles said. “A big reason we were great in Philly was we had a great coaching staff. They put us in a position to succeed, and it showed. Everyone can say it showed. That being said, I don’t want to just go somewhere where I don’t know ’em, I don’t know the offense. I’ve gone down that road before, and it’s not fun.”
It sounds like Foles is perfectly fine with staying put in Chicago, even with Justin Fields and Andy Dalton being ahead of him in the depth chart. Flip the page to check out Foles speak on the trade rumors, Coach Reich, and Wentz.
