PHILADELPHIA (AP) Carson Wentz's back injury will likely give Nick Foles another opportunity.

Eagles coach Doug Pederson said Friday that Wentz does not require surgery for a stress fracture in his back and the injury could take up to three months to heal. The quarterback is listed as "questionable" for Sunday night's game against the Rams in Los Angeles and is scheduled to travel with the team.

"The fact that he doesn't need surgery on this is the best news you could possibly have on anybody that has a stress fracture or stress injury," Pederson said. "If we put him out there, there has to be 100 percent that there's no risk of anything further."
