The Philadelphia Eagles are going to have a dilemma in the next few weeks. Injured quarterback Nick Foles could be back by Week 16.

Currently, the team is led by Mark Sanchez, who led the Birds to a big win over the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving. Now comes word that Foles broken collarbone is healing normally following a four-week followup CT scan.

Since Foles went down with the injury, the Eagles have only loss one game – to the Green Bay Packers – and three wins. And an NJ.com story by veteran Eagles reporter Mark Eckel suggested that the front office has lost confidence in Foles as the long-term quarterback.

With the good next, Foles is expected to step up his exercises, as he could be back in 2-4 weeks. A lot of people have been speculating that he’ll be back in Week 16 at the Washington Redskins.

While he may be able to throw, he’s not expected to take a hit anytime soon.

Sanchez, who signed a one-year contract with the team in the off-season, is better for head coach Chip Kelly’s offense, as he brings more athleticism than Foles. The veteran also is able to run the offense very well.

The former New York Jets quarterback will have to stay near perfect in the next several games, including against the reigning champions, the Seattle Seahawks, in their next game, before three straight NFC East games to end the season.
