Don’t Worry, Nick Foles’ Ribs Are Just Fine

He got an X-Ray after the championship game to prove it.

Nick Foles is doing just fine after the Philadelphia Eagles destroyed the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC championship game on Sunday. He underwent X-rays on his ribs after the game merely as a precaution. “They were just checking,” Foles told ESPN after the Eagles’ 38-7 victory over Minnesota. “I’m good. I’m good.” If his ribs had been a bother during the game, Foles didn’t show it. He completed 26 of 33 passes for 353 yards and three touchdowns, including a 53-yarder to Alshon Jeffery and a 41-yarder to Torrey Smith. He will also now get a two-week reprieve before the Super Bowl on Feb. 4 in Minneapolis. “I haven’t even had time to really comprehend what’s going on, to be honest. I don’t even know if I ever will,” Foles said after the game, according to The Washington Post. “When I was up there on the stage, it’s something you dream about as a kid. Just being the magnitude of this game and for us to go out as a team and put together a great performance, that’s something really special.”
