With the knowledge that Eagles starting QB Nick Foles would miss time with the broken collarbone he suffered against the Texans, there is now a much clearer picture as to how much time Foles will be be gone with the injury.
According to Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer, while Foles will not require surgery on the injury, he will in all likelihood miss at least 6-8 weeks.

The same type of injury caused Packers QB Aaron Rodgers to miss seven games for Green Bay in 2013, leading many to suspect Foles would need a similar recovery time. The Eagles are actually in a very similar situation to what the Packers were in that year, and if they can manage to play .500 football or better with backup QB Mark Sanchez at the helm, the loss of Foles should not prevent them from reaching the playoffs again.
