UPDATE: Nick Foles will NOT require surgery per @MikeGarafolo
The Philadelphia Eagles beat the Houston Texans today, but in the process may have lost QB Nick Foles for a while, to a broken collarbone. Foles attempted 13 passes in the first half, before suffering the injury and Mark Sanchez finished the half, and the game for the Eagles. Sanchez completed 15 of his 22 attempts for 202 yards, 2 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. Sanchez hooked up with rookie Jordan Matthews and veteran Jeremy Maclin for scores. Sanchez and Maclin hooked up for a big 59 yard play:
The Mark Sanchez Era in Philly may last a month or more. #Eagles QB Nick Foles could miss that much with a broken collarbone. Tests tomorrow

Foles joins Robert Griffin III, Kirk Cousins and Tony Romo on a list of NFC East QBs to miss time this season, leaving the one and only Eli Manning left standing. Unfortunately, Sanchez is a legit fantasy football option for Week 10 in the NFL, as Andrew Luck (Colts), Tom Brady (Patriots), Philip Rivers (Chargers), RG3 (Redskins), Teddy Bridgewater (Vikings) and Ryan Fitzpatrick (Texans) are all on BYE! However, the Eagles host the Carolina Panthers on Monday Night Football!
