Foles Out With Shoulder Injury; Sanchez In

HOUSTON -- Eagles quarterback Nick Foles is questionable to return while he undergoes X-rays on his left shoulder. Mark Sanchez is in at quarterback in the meanwhile.

Foles injured his shoulder while taking a sack on the final play of the first quarter. He had thrown one touchdown and one interception on the day and was 9-of-12 for 119 yards.

On his first drive, Sanchez led the Eagles to a 60-yard touchdown drive, thanks in large part to a 52-yard pass to Jeremy Maclin on his first play from scrimmage. Maclin would be penalized 15 yards for unsportsmanlike conduct following the play, but the Eagles would press on undettered. On 3rd-and-goal from the 11-yard-line, Sanchez lofted a perfect pass to Jordan Matthews, who secured the catch to give the Eagles a 14-7 lead.

UPDATE: Foles was officially downgraded to out following halftime. Sanchez is the lone remaining quarterback on the active roster.
