Eagles' Wentz has stress fracture in back; no surgery needed

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Carson Wentz's back injury means Nick Foles gets another opportunity to rescue the Philadelphia Eagles.

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 "doubtful" for Sunday night's game against the Rams in Los Angeles and is scheduled to travel with the team. Foles wasn't available to speak to reporters, but teammates expect the Super Bowl MVP to start.

"He's the guy and it's my job to create as much separation for him or if he gives me an opportunity and I am covered, go get it," wide receiver Nelson Agholor said after practice.
