Nick Foles Knocked Out with Shoulder Injury, Replaced by Mark Sanchez [UPDATE]

By Jason McIntyre

Nick Foles had an uneven first quarter against the Texas – gorgeous long TD pass, pick-six – and early in the second quarter he got knocked out of the game.

Foles took a shot from Houston’s Whitney Mercilus, and the QB had his shoulder driven into the ground. He was slow to get up and then went to the locker room.

Mark Sanchez took over at QB. In a neat twist, Sanchez’s first NFL start was in Houston in 2009. He beat the Texans, 24-7.

Sanchez threw a 52-yard pass to Jeremy Maclin on his first play. A few plays later, he threw a TD pass to rookie Jordan Matthews.

UPDATE: Sounds like a clavicle injury for Foles, via Fox’s Mike Garafolo.
