Could Nick Foles Return Before Season's End?

QB Nick Foles has been cleared to resume working out by head coach Chip Kelly which leads to speculation about when Foles may return to the starting lineup.

In his Monday afternoon press conference, Eagles' head coach Chip Kelly told the media he had cleared injured quarterback Nick Foles to resume working out which has led many to raise the following question: When it comes to Nick Foles playing again this season is it more a question of when than if?

As we reported on Sunday, Nick Foles made the trip to Lambeau with his team. Eliot Shorr-Parks of NJ Advance Media reported that Foles was more than just an observer. Foles was seen throwing the football and participating in sprints with the practice squad. Shorr-Parks reported that the third year Eagles quarterback "showed zero signs of being injured as he ran around the field, making one handed catches and pretending to drop back in 'the pocket' a few times before firing off a pass."

At his Monday press conference, head coach Chip Kelly told the media Foles has "been cleared to workout, but it isn't anything in terms of contact." Foles, who sustained a fracture to his collarbone in Houston two weeks ago, is scheduled to get another x-ray in the next couple of weeks. "Until they get an x-ray done," Kelly informed, "he'll continue to work out...try to stay in shape."

Foles is officially out for Sunday's game against Tennessee at the Linc, but said nothing beyond that lending to speculation that Foles may be able to return under center before season's end.

So, if given the choice of a healthy Nick Foles or Mark Sanchez, who would you rather have starting at quarterback for the Eagles? Does it even matter? Weigh in below in our WarNest poll question.
