Pederson also announced that franchise quarterback Carson Wentz will not go on injured reserve as he deals with a stress fracture in his back that could require three months of recovery time. Pederson said that Wentz is considered "week-to-week."
Foles completed 24-of-31 passes for 270 yards and an interception in Philadelphia's 30-23 upset win over the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday night. He found a familiar target in Alshon Jeffery, as the pair connected eight times for 160 yards for the Eagles (7-7).
The 29-year-old Foles is no stranger to stepping up in place of Wentz, who sustained a torn ACL and LCL in his left knee during a game against the Rams on Dec. 10, 2017.
Wentz was considered the front-runner for league MVP honors before the injury and had to watch Foles guide the Eagles to a 41-33 win over the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII. Foles earned Super Bowl Most Valuable Player honors to boot.
The 25-year-old Wentz relieved Foles after the first two games of this season and completed 279-of-401 passes for 3,074 yards with 21 touchdowns and seven interceptions in 11 contests. Wentz has thrown for 70 touchdowns against 28 interceptions in 40 career games since being selected by the Eagles with the second overall pick of the 2016 NFL Draft.
