QB - FA
According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Indianapolis Colts are releasing veteran QB Nick Foles after one season with the team.
At the age of 34, Foles has now played for six different teams over an 11-year career, largely playing as a backup quarterback capable of starting in a pinch. In 2022, Foles played just three games with the Colts, completing less than 60% of his passes and throwing four interceptions with no touchdowns. At this point in his career, regardless of where he lands in free agency, Foles has no fantasy value outside of a spot start in the case of an injury.
Colts interim coach Jeff Saturday told reporters Monday that Nick Foles is "really sore" and won't play in Week 18 against the Texans.
Sam Ehlinger was announced as the starter for the Colts. Foles injured his ribs on Sunday after taking a hard hit from Kayvon Thibodeaux. The 2022 season ends for Foles having thrown zero touchdowns and four interceptions in limited action.
Indianapolis Colts QB Nick Foles is being ruled out for the second half of the game against the Giants with a rib injury.
QB Sam Ehlinger will come in to replace Foles, who went down with a rib injury following a sack. Foles finished his game with just 81 yards passing and an interception. Ehlinger will have the opportunity to attempt to erase a 21-point halftime deficit.
Indianapolis Colts QB Nick Foles, who left the game just before halftime with a rib injury, is questionable to return on Sunday against the Giants.
Foles went down with an injury after a sack by edge rusher Kayvon Thibodeaux. The cart was brought out for him, but he was able to walk back to the sideline before boarding back on the cart to the locker room. QB Sam Ehlinger is serving as the team's backup and will play if Foles is unable to return.
Nick Foles will remain the starting quarterback in Week 17 against the Giants.
Foles struggled in his first start Monday night against the Chargers. The Colts’ offense is struggling to find consistency and fantasy managers should leave Foles out of Week 17 lineups.
