Report: QB Nick Foles' collarbone only 70 percent healed


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2014) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles' broken collarbone is only 70 percent healed, and there's no way he'll play in either of the team's final two regular-season games, reports Sportsradio 94WIP. Foles suffered the injury Week 9.

Per the report, Mark Sanchez will finish out the regular season and Foles would only have a chance to return if Philly makes the playoffs.


Maybe Mark Sanchez not worth the trouble


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/15/2014) When Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez threw for just 96 yards against the Seahawks in Week 14 after averaging 300.5 in his first four starts in place of Nick Foles, it was thought to be just a product of the matchup. After all, the Seahawks had allowed an average of 116.0 passing yards in their previous three games, looking once again like a world championship-caliber defense.

But with what seemed like a favorable matchup Week 15 against Dallas, a team that entered the week ranked 25th against the pass, Sanchez again laid an egg, but a different kind. He threw two interceptions with no touchdown passes, completing 17 of 28 passes for 252 yards.

Looking back at his numbers, Sanchez still seems to be as mistake-prone as ever. For all the success he's had replacing Foles, he has just 10 touchdown passes to nine interceptions. He's thrown two picks in four of his seven games this year.

The Eagles offense is prolific enough that he figures to have good yardage when he's not facing the Seahawks, but the interceptions could keep him from performing like a top-12 quarterback down the stretch. Of course, he's facing the Redskins in Week 16, who've allowed the most Fantasy points per game to quarterbacks this season, but just how willing are you to gamble on something like that this time of year?


Eagles QB Mark Sanchez throws two picks in loss vs. Cowboys


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2014) Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez completed 17 of his 28 passes for 252 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions in his team's 38-27 loss to the Cowboys in Week 15.

Sanchez did a good job of bringing the Eagles back from the brink of a blowout loss after falling behind 21-0 in the second quarter but also contributed two of the team's four turnovers. It's the first time in his seven games this season that Sanchez has failed to throw a touchdown. He'll be looking for a big rebound performance when the Eagles face the Redskins in Week 16.


Don't lose faith in Mark Sanchez


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/11/2014) Mark Sanchez, who has started at quarterback for the Eagles since Nick Foles went down in Week 9, looked like he might be in for a rude awakening against the Seahawks last week, but 10 completions for 96 yards went beyond even the most pessimistic projections.

But again, he was facing the Seahawks, which counts for a lot more now than it did at the start of the season. They're back to playing world champion-caliber defense, allowing an average of 107.5 passing yards in their last four games. Yes, that's the average for a four-game stretch. They're making every quarterback look like Kurt Kittner.

Sanchez averaged 300.5 passing yards in his first four starts for the Eagles -- better even than what Foles was doing -- and leads one of the league's most explosive offenses. Prior to Week 14, the Eagles ranked fourth in both yards and points per game. You shouldn't be afraid to use him Week 15 against the Cowboys. They rank only 25th against the pass, allowing 251.9 yards per game, and he just put up 22 Fantasy points against them two weeks ago.

It doesn't mean you have to start him -- both Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard rank at least 12 quarterbacks ahead of him for Week 15 -- but if you had gotten used to starting him, don't let his Week 14 performance be the reason you stop.


Eagles QB Mark Sanchez has a tough time Week 14


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez had a tough time Week 14 against the Seahawks.

Sanchez completed 10 of 20 passes for 96 yards and two touchdowns. He threw one interception and was sacked three times during the contest. Sanchez's first touchdown came as the result of a turnover. Following a fumbled punt, the Eagles took over at the 14 yard line. A few plays later, Sanchez found Jeremy Maclin on a 1 yard touchdown pass. His other score also came with somewhat of a short field. This time, though, Sanchez struck from 35 yards out, finding Zach Ertz on the play. Other than that, Sanchez was mostly limited against a rejuvenated Seahawks defense. Sanchez also had 7 rushing yards.

He'll take on the Cowboys Week 15. 


Not the week to start Mark Sanchez


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/4/2014) With the way Mark Sanchez has performed since taking over as the Eagles quarterback in Week 9 -- contributing two touchdowns, either rushing or passing, in four of his five games -- you're probably itching to get him in your lineup even at a weak position. But Week 14 isn't the time to do it, not with the Seahawks coming to town.

The Seahawks rank third against the pass, giving up 199.4 yards per game and, even worse, have allowed the fewest Fantasy points per game to quarterbacks. They've been especially stifling lately, allowing less than 150 passing yards to the last three quarterbacks they've faced.

The Eagles have a prolific offense, ranking fourth in both yards and points per game, so they have as good a chance as any team of overcoming the numbers, but why force the issue at a position where you probably have a strong alternative?

Going by Jamey Eisenberg's and Dave Richard's rankings, you'd have to play in a 16-team league to consider starting Sanchez this week.


Report: Eagles QB Nick Foles to return in 2-4 weeks


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/29/2014) A followup CT scan on the injured left collarbone of Eagles quarterback Nick Foles revealed that it's healing normally. He should be cleared to return to game action in 2-4 weeks, a source has told the Philadelphia Daily News.

If replacement Mark Sanchez continues to perform as well as he did in the Thanksgiving Day defeat of Dallas, speculation is that Foles will not get his starting job back upon his return. It remains to be seen who is behind center if and when the Eagles begin their playoff journey.


Eagles QB Mark Sanchez has big first half in easy win


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/27/2014) Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez did almost all his damage in the first half of Thursday's 33-10 rout at Dallas, throwing for 202 yards and accounting for two touchdowns. He finished 20 of 29 for 217 yards and a touchdown and ran five times for 29 yards and another score.

After committing six turnovers in his previous two games, Sanchez did not have a turnover Thursday.

Sanchez came out on fire. He led the Eagles to 80- and 88-yard touchdown drives on their first two possessions. Sanchez capped the first march with a 2-yard keeper off a zone read, and he ended the second with a 27-yard scoring strike to rookie Jordan Matthews.

Sanchez plays the Seahawks in Week 14.


Eagles QB Mark Sanchez posts third straight 300-yard game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez registered his third consecutive game with at least 300 passing yards, leading his team to a comfortable 43-24 victory over Tennessee in Week 12. Prior to this season, Sanchez never had two consecutive 300-yard games.

Sanchez hooked up with James Casey for a 14-yard touchdown in the third quarter. He compiled 307 yards through the air while completing 30 of 43 pass attempts. He added one touchdown, two interceptions and finished with a 78.3 passer rating. He has 1,187 passing yards with seven touchdowns and six interceptions this season.

Sanchez will look to make it four games in a row Thursday against Dallas.


Mark Sanchez puts up garbage-time points


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez ended up with decent numbers, but his second start in Week 11 against the Packers was mostly a disaster Sunday.

Sanchez finished the game with 21 Fantasy points, but most of that came after the game was already out of reach. He tossed both of his touchdowns in the second half with the Eagles down 30-plus points, after tossing a pair of ugly interceptions in the first half. He ended up completing 26 of 44 passes for 346 yards in the blowout loss.

Sanchez looked solid in his first start, but looked like the Mark Sanchez of old Sunday. He has six touchdowns in almost three full games since Nick Foles' injury, to go with four interceptions.

This Eagles offense looks like it can turn just about anyone into a productive Fantasy option, especially if they have to throw the ball 35-plus times. It might not be pretty, but Sanchez looks like he's in the right spot to remain Fantasy relevant down the stretch, even if you'll never feel great about starting him. 


Mark Sanchez charged with four turnovers Week 11


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez completed 26 of 44 throws for 346 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 53-20 loss at Green Bay. But he also threw two interceptions, including a pick-six, and was credited with two lost fumbles.

Sanchez telegraphed a short pass to tight end Brent Celek in the third quarter. Packers defensive end Julius Peppers picked it off easily and returned it 52 yards for a touchdown. Sanchez also was intercepted when he tried to throw out of bounds but didn't get enough on the ball.

One of Sanchez's fumbles occurred when LeSean McCoy failed to secure the handoff. On the other, Sanchez couldn't handle a high shotgun snap and Packers corner Casey Hayward scooped up the loose ball for a 49-yard score.

Sanchez, who threw second-half scores to Jordan Matthews and Jeremy Maclin, posted his 10th career 300-yard game and the second highest yardage output of his career. However, he overthrew several open receivers. He'll try for a better performance Week 12 against the Titans.


Mark Sanchez throws for 332 yards, 2 TDs in first Eagles start


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2014) Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez kept Chip Kelly's offensive machine rolling Monday night in his first start since replacing the injured Nick Foles. Sanchez hit 20 of 27 throws for 332 yards and two touchdowns with no turnovers in a 45-21 pasting of the Panthers.

It was Sanchez's first 300-yard game since Nov. 22, 2012. He moved well in the pocket and took only one sack.

With his team leading 17-7, Sanchez led a 91-yard touchdown drive in which he completed five straight passes for 28, 17, 20, 20 and 13 yards. Four of those went to his favorite receiver, Jordan Matthews, including the 13-yard score.

Sanchez later found Matthews for an 18-yard touchdown, and he nearly had a 30-yard scoring pass to tight end Brent Celek. But Celek was ruled down inside the 1.

Sanchez posted a 102.5 passer rating. He visits the Packers in Week 11.


Eagles' Maclin: 'The sky is the limit' for QB Mark Sanchez


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/6/2014) The support continues to pour in for Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez, who takes over as Philadelphia's starting quarterback with Nick Foles sidelined. Sanchez is remembered for his struggles toward the end of his tenure with the Jets, but Eagles teammate Jeremy Maclin is the latest player or coach to show confidence in Sanchez.

"The Mark Sanchez I knew when he got here was the quarterback that led [the Jets] to two straight AFC championship games," Maclin said Wednesday, per the New York Post. "He was a quarterback who won at this level as a very high draft pick and did very well with what he was given in New York. 

"Mark can play, man. There’s no question about it. He’s also surrounded by a lot more talent than what he had in New York, so the sky’s the limit."

Stephen Hill, who is a former teammate of Sanchez with the Jets and is now on the Panthers' practice squad, chimed in as well. He said Sanchez shouldn't have any issues with Chip Kelly's up-tempo offense. Sanchez makes his first start of the season Monday against Carolina.

"He gets the ball out of his hands quickly," Hill said, per ESPN. "That's going to be a big deal, especially for our defense." 


Eagles 'feel very confident' with Mark Sanchez at quarterback


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2014) Eagles coach Chip Kelly offered his support Monday for quarterback Mark Sanchez, who takes over as the starter after Nick Foles suffered a broken collarbone Sunday against the Texans.

"I feel great about Mark. We felt great about him all along," Kelly said. "I always said you need two quarterbacks. ...I thought he did a great job in our system. He played outstanding in the preseason and showed no rust when he got in there against Houston yesterday. We feel real confident. We feel obviously really bad for Nick that he’s out, but we feel very confident in Mark if we have to go in that direction."

Sanchez completed 15 of 22 passes for 202 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in relief of Foles during a 31-21 win Sunday.

"We didn't change anything," Kelly said of the Texans game. "He can run everything."


Eagles coach Chip Kelly: Nick Foles has a crack in his clavicle


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2014) Eagles coach Chip Kelly told reporters that starting quarterback Nick Foles has a crack in his clavicle and is undergoing an MRI to determine the extent of the injury, per the team's official website. According to an earlier report from CBSSports.com NFL insider Jason La Canfora, Foles could miss four-to-six weeks while recovering from the injury.

"There's a crack in the clavicle and we don't know the extent," Kelly said during his news conference.

The team will turn to Mark Sanchez for the time being. Sanchez completed 15 of 22 passes for 202 yards and two touchdowns, while also tossing a pair of interceptions in a Week 9 victory over the Texans.


La Canfora: Nick Foles breaks clavicle, Sanchez time for Eagles


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles suffered a broken clavicle in Sunday's win over the Texans and wil undergo a full MRI Monday, CBSSports.com NFL insider Jason La Canfora reports.

Foles is expected to miss four-to-six weeks while recovering from the injury, and a more specific timetable should be known after Monday's MRI. Per La Canfora, coach Chip Kelly is very comfortable with backup quarterback Mark Sanchez, so if the former USC Trojan rises to the occasion, the team could move forward with Sanchez under center.

The Eagles sit at 6-2 in sole possession of first place in the NFC East.


Mark Sanchez shows competence in relief


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Backup quarterback Mark Sanchez took over at quarterback for the Eagles following Nick Foles' injury in Week 9 against the Texans and the offense kept running, just as it is designed to.

Foles did a solid job last season running Chip Kelly's offense, but there was always the thought that he was a product of the system more than anything. And, though Sunday's performance by Sanchez isn't necessarily confirmation of that, it's not like Sanchez looked all that much worse than Foles.

Sanchez completed 15 of 22 passes for 202 yards and two touchdowns, while also tossing a pair of interceptions. Those numbers aren't far off what Foles had in the game and overall this season, which isn't really a surprise. As bad as Sanchez has been in his career, Kelly's offense in Philadelphia is designed to put quarterbacks in good position to succeed.

There probably isn't much of a reason to rush out and grab Sanchez, who has never been much of a Fantasy option in his career. However, with six teams on bye and quarterbacks like Andrew Luck, Philip Rivers and Tom Brady out, Sanchez just might be worth a flier for Week 10 against a Panthers defense that is giving up 21.2 Fantasy points per game to quarterbacks this season.


Eagles QB Mark Sanchez comes through in defeat of Texans


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Eagles backup quarterback Mark Sanchez was shaky after a strong start against Houston on Sunday in relief of injured starter Nick Foles. But he saved his best for last.

Sanchez opened with a flourish, firing a 52-yard strike to sizzling veteran wideout Jeremy Maclin and adding an 11-yard touchdown pass to Jordan Matthews. He was 8 for 9 for 111 yards at halftime, but he had also thrown an interception by then and continued to flirt with picks after intermission. He was fortunate that the Texans dropped two on one third quarter possession.

He did come through when needed, however, firing an 8-yard score to Maclin with 3:50 remaining in the game to clinch the victory. Sanchez finished 15 of 22 for 202 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions.

If Nick Foles is indeed out with a clavicle injury, as has been widely speculated, Sanchez will be under center when Philadelphia hosts Carolina next Monday night.


Nick Foles, Mark Sanchez to sit preseason finale; Matt Barkley gets starting nod


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) Eagles coach Chip Kelly confirmed that Nick Foles and backup Mark Sanchez will sit out the preseason finale, Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia reports. Matt Barkley will get the nod Thursday against the Jets.

Mark Sanchez lighting up preseason


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/17/2014) Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez is 18 of 22 for 196 yards and two touchdowns through two preseason games. He threw just one incompletion Friday night against the Patriots, posting a 112.2 passer rating, reports ESPN.com.

It would take a lot for the Eagles to consider trading Sanchez.

"You better have two quarterbacks in this league," coach Chip Kelly said. "So I think unless something blows you out of the water, we're real confident with Mark starting a game if we need it. ... We need him."


Chip Kelly says Mark Sanchez 'has been outstanding'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2014) Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez "has been outstanding since he's been here," coach Chip Kelly told reporters. "I think he's starting to feel more comfortable in terms of what we’re trying to do."

Sanchez has played so well that there's no question he's the No. 2 QB, according to The Star-Ledger. "Every day he's here," Kelly said, "there is an energy you can feed off of from him."


Site predicts Mark Sanchez to back up Nick Foles


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/18/2014) Mark Sanchez will battle Matt Barkley for the backup quarterback job behind Nick Foles in camp this summer. But ESPN says to "put your money on Sanchez" winning the No. 2 spot, suggesting that the Eagles wouldn't have even signed him if he was going to be their emergency quarterback. 

Chip Kelly: Mark Sanchez signing a 'no-brainer'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/30/2014) Eagles coach Chip Kelly said he's excited about the addition of quarterback Mark Sanchez, who's expected to back up Nick Foles.

"I've said many times that we will always look to add quality players at the quarterback position," Kelly said. ""We consider it a key position in this game, so having the chance to add Mark to that group was a no-brainer for us.

"Mark has started 68 games in his career and has taken his teams deep into the playoffs multiple times, so we really like what he brings to the table from an experience standpoint. I also had the chance to see Mark play in college and have always had respect for his game and athletic ability."


Mark Sanchez says he'll be ready for OTAs


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2014) New Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez, who's rehabbing from shoulder surgery, said he'll be ready for OTAs, reports the New York Daily News. Sanchez's one-year contract includes $2.5 million guaranteed.

Sanchez, who's expected to back up Nick Foles, said he's excited to learn under coach Chip Kelly.

"I feel like this team, this coach, the kind of firepower they have, there's just an exciting element to being here in Philadelphia," Sanchez said, per Philly.com. "Coach Kelly really is on the cutting edge of the NFL. He's one of those guys who has a really exciting vision for the future. I think he is on a constant pursuit of a competitive edge. He's an excitable person. I think as an offensive mind, I'm going to do nothing but learn here."


Report: Mark Sanchez signing with Eagles today


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2014) Quarterback Mark Sanchez will sign with the Eagles on Thursday after passing his physical, reports CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora.

Sanchez was cut by the Jets last week. He missed all of last season following shoulder surgery, but drew interest from several teams, according to La Canfora.
