Report: QB Nick Foles to get starting nod in Chicago on Sunday

By Josh Liddick, Sports Talk Philly contributor

According to reports from NFL Network Insiders Mike Garofolo and Ian Rapoport and confirmed by head coach Doug Pederson, the Eagles will not have to be worried about who their starting quarterback will be in the Wild Card Round of the playoffs on Sunday afternoon in Chicago.

Nick Foles, who suffered a chest injury in the Eagles' win over the Washington Redskins on Sunday, will not miss time with bruised ribs, as there was no break. He is expected to get the start for the team as they begin their quest for a second straight Super Bowl Championship.

Foles went 28-for-33 with 221 yards and a TD in the Eagles' 24-0 win over the Redskins with Nate Sudfeld showing why he's a viable replacement in times of urgency by completing one pass for a touchdown to Nelson Agholor in relief of Foles.

Pederson spoke to the media on Monday afternoon and talked about what it's like for Carson Wentz (fractured vertebra) to have to watch his team play in the playoffs without him for the second straight postseason.

The Eagles, with Foles, will head to Chicago to take on the NFC North Champion Bears at Soldier Field on Sunday at 4:40 p.m.
