Foles is out for the next six-to-eight weeks after breaking his collarbone in the second quarter of Sunday's 31-21 victory over the Houston Texans. He will not need surgery on the injury.

According to Eckel’s report, members of the organization have not been pleased with Foles' play, even though Philadelphia sits at 6-2 and is tied for first place in the NFC East at the halfway point of the season.

In his Pro Bowl season of 2013, Foles was the league's highest-rated passer, throwing 27 touchdowns with only two interceptions, while completing 64 percent of his passes.

Through eight games this season, Foles has thrown 13 touchdown passes, but his 10 interceptions are tied for second in the NFL.

A league source told that Roseman is looking at quarterbacks and isn't convinced that Foles is the quarterback they want moving forward. According to, Roseman preferred Kirk Cousins, now with the Washington Redskins, over Foles in the 2013 Draft.
