Mike Kafka Well, whaddya know. After being the talk of Thursday night’s preseason game against the Steelers, Philadelphia Eagles rookie quarterback Nick Foles is now in the #2 QB spot. But it’s not due to any controversy at the position. It’s because Mike Kafka’s left (non- throwing) hand was stepped on and broken during the game. Kafka is expected to be out for 2-3 weeks. While he is participating on a limited basis and taking part in some drill, he will not be able to take snaps. Kafka’s injury means that Foles will now take snaps with the second team. It’s what many Eagles fans wanted to see following his strong showing against the Steelers–he was 6-of-10 for 144 yards and two touchdowns–and Foles’ confidence has not been rattled by he increased speed he’s seen from the promotion. I feel really comfortable. In different drills and different things, there is a mixture of different players. I’ve been with different o-lineman. Whether it’s in the cafeteria, in the dorms, or in the meet

Nick Foles, Philadelphia Eagles QB impressed in his debut with the team. But can he be called the future after one quarter of pre-season play?
