Tim Tebow Works Out for Eagles, but Team Doesn’t Plan to Sign Him

Tim Tebow Works Out for Eagles, but Team Doesn’t Plan to Sign Him Jared Wickham/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Tebowmania experienced a sudden jolt on Monday as Tim Tebow surprised the NFL world by working out for the Philadelphia Eagles. Despite the workout, ESPN is reporting the Eagles have no plans to sign the former Heisman Trophy winner. Tebow last appeared in an NFL regular season game when he was with the New York Jets back in 2012. He did spend time with the New England Patriots in 2013, but was cut before the regular season started. A true media magnet, Tebow was one of the greatest college football players of all time while he was with the Florida Gators. He was a first-round pick by the Denver Broncos back in 2010, and even led the team to a division title in 2011. Despite his success, his erratic and unorthodox style never quite fit in the NFL, and he's been unable to gain many opportunities to continue his pro career at the quarterback position. Tebow completed 47.9 percent of his passes for 2,422 yards with 17 touchdowns and nine interceptions during his pro career, while rushing for 989 yards and 12 scores.

Kelly takes over for Tom Cable, who was let go on Wednesday and Howie Roseman has been promoted from general manager to executive vice president of football operations. "I have a very good relationship with Chip that continues to grow stronger and stronger.

We look forward to seeing it come to life over time." Kelly will also be in charge of replacing Cable, who was the vice president of player personnel. "You have heard me say many times that I want strong leaders who feel free to express their opinions," Lurie said. "And that is what happened here. Chip will now lead this process going forward with the continued full support of Howie, Don and myself. "Chip will not be doing this work by himself, obviously," Lurie continued.  "He has been charged with recruiting and hiring a new personnel executive that will report directly to him and together we will move forward with this new, highly integrated approach."

NFL Injury Update: Foles Ruled Out, Murray Has Surgery

NFL Injury Update: Foles Ruled Out, Murray Has Surgery Scott Boehm/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- In the hotly-contested NFC East, both the Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles got injury updates on star players Monday. The immediate future of both DeMarco Murray and Nick Foles are up in the air as the two teams head into the final two weeks of the year. Murray, who fractured his left hand in Sunday's win over Philadelphia, had surgery Monday to repair the break. The Cowboys have not yet ruled the running back out for this weekend's matchup with Indianapolis. "The biggest question we have to ask ourselves is, is he functional to do his job?" said head coach Jason Garrett. "Can he hold the football? Can he carry it under duress? Can he block? Can he do the things necessary to play the position?" The NFL's leading rusher, Murray has carried the ball 351 times for 1,687 yards. He is 87 yards shy of eclipsing Emmitt Smith's franchise record of 1,773 yards set in 1995. The Eagles announced Monday that quarterback Nick Foles is not yet ready to return to the field. Head coach Chip Kelly says the broken collarbone is healing, but not enough to handle football contact. "The bone is not healed," Kelly added. "He'll start throwing a little bit more, but he's out for right now. He's not cleared and will not play this week. Until he gets fully healed, he's not going to be able to play with it. We think he'll be able to throw a little more this week, but we can't have anyone near him with contact." Foles has missed the last six games in which Philadelphia has gone 3-3 with Mark Sanchez at the helm. In the previous eight games he started, Foles threw 13 touchdowns and racked up 1,752 yards. Philadelphia is set to visit Washington on Saturday. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Seattle Preys On Philadelphia

Seattle Preys On Philadelphia Kevin Casey/Getty Images(PHILADELPHIA, Pa.) -- The Seattle Seahawks are peaking once again as the regular season enters its final month. Sunday, the defending Super Bowl Champions grounded the high flying Philadelphia Eagles with a 24-14 victory. Russell Wilson was on his game beating Philadelphia through the air and on the ground. Wilson ran for a touchdown as well as completing 22 of 37 passes for 263 yards and a pair of touchdowns to Marshawn Lynch and Doug Baldwin. Seattle's Legion of Boom defense befuddled Mark Sanchez and the Eagles all evening. The Eagles signal caller continued his yo-yo like performance as this week he completed 10 of 20 passes for 96 yards. He also threw an interception and was sacked three times. The Seahawks now enter a three game divisional slate to end their season.  They host a reeling 49ers team next week as part of a stretch that will likely determine the winner of the NFC West.

Eagles Route the Cowboys, 33-10

Eagles Route the Cowboys, 33-10 Rob Carr via Getty Images(ARLINGTON, Texas) -- In a game between two of the top teams in the NFC East, the Philadelphia Eagles proved to be better on Thanksgiving as they easily defeated the Dallas Cowboys 33-10. The Eagles struck first in the game as quarterback Mark Sanchez commanded the team to a 7-0 in their first possession in furious fashion, and never looked back. Sanchez completed 20 of 29 passes for 217 yards and one touchdown through the air while adding another on the ground. It was his first game of the season without a turnover. Eagles running back LeSean McCoy had arguably his best game of the season on Thursday, as he carried the ball 25 times for 159 yards and a touchdown. Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo and running back DeMarco Murray each failed to get into a rhythm during the game. Romo completed 18 of 29 yards for 199 yards and two interceptions. He snapped his streak of 38-straight games with at least one TD pass. Murray was held to a season-low 73 yards. With the win, the Eagles now sit at 9-3 on the season and hold sole possession of first place in the NFC East over the Cowboys who fell to 8-4 with the loss.

Sanchez threw for 332 yards and two touchdowns, and the Eagles defense did the rest of the work. Philadelphia sacked Panthers quarterback Cam Newton nine times and forced five turnovers with three picks in the rout.   Darren Sproles capped off a terrific first quarter with a 65-yard punt return to give the Eagles a 17-7 lead. "Just an outstanding performance by all three phases," Sanchez said. Newton and the Panthers have now lost four in a row. "We've got to do things better," Panthers coach Ron Rivera said. "I have to coach better, coaches have to coach better, we have to practice better and then go out and play better. And we're going to do it together as a team."

ESPN: Eagles Quarterback Nick Foles Has Broken Collarbone

ESPN: Eagles Quarterback Nick Foles Has Broken Collarbone Rich Shultz/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- If the Philadelphia Eagles hope to win their second-consecutive NFC East crown, it'll have to be on the shoulders of backup quarterback Mark Sanchez. ESPN reports quarterback Nick Foles has suffered a broken collarbone and is out indefinitely. Foles suffered the injury on Sunday during the team's win over the Houston Texans when he was taken down by linebacker Whitney Mercilus. Last season, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers suffered the same injury and missed seven games. Replacing Foles as the starting quarterback is former New York Jet Mark Sanchez, who in relief of Foles completed 15 of 22 passes for 202 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions. "Since Day 1 here, you know what type of professional [Sanchez] is. ...We were fortunate when Nick did go down, we were able to bring Mark in," Eagles head coach Chip Kelly said. "I don't think we missed a beat." Fortunately for the Eagles, they are 6-2 and are in first place in the NFC East. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Cardinals Fly High on Late Bomb

Cardinals Fly High on Late Bomb Streeter Lecka/Getty Images(PHOENIX, AZ) --  The Arizona Cardinals won in dramatic fashion, 24-20 over the Philadelphia Eagles. For the majority of the game it was a defensive struggle. The fourth quarter proved to be the most exciting as the offenses began to gain steam. After tieing the game at 17 with 9:01 to go, the Eagles methodically moved the ball on a 13-play seven minute drive down to the Cardinals three. Cody Parkey lined up for the go-ahead field goal and gave Philadelphia a 20-17 lead. With 1:21 remaining in the fourth quarter Carson Palmer heaved a pass up to rookie John Brown.  Brown was screaming past two Eagles defenders reached out and caught the ball.  After a quick stumble, Brown regained his momentum and raced to the endzone for a 75-yard touchdown.  The Eagles mounted a quick rally driving the ball 64 yards to attempt several throws into the Cardinals endzone.  On the final play with one second remaining, pressure in his face, Foles threw up a pass to rookie Jordan Matthews.  Matthews caught the ball but was shoved out by safety Rashad Johnson. The Cardinals move to 6-1 and hold a firm grasp on the NFL West.   Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Eagles Roar Back, Clip Colts at the Wire

Eagles Roar Back, Clip Colts at the Wire Rich Shultz/Getty Images(INDIANAPOLIS) --  Trailing by seven with five minutes to play, Nick Foles led the Philadelphia Eagles on two scoring drives, the second ending with Cody Parkey hitting a go-ahead field goal with time expiring, as the Eagles clip the Indianapolis Colts, 30-27, Monday night.

Despite the deficit the Eagles (2-0) never panicked, scoring on two touchdowns in less than two minutes to finish off the third tied 20-20.  The Colts answered back on their first drive of the fourth quarter when Luck threw his third touchdown of the game, a seven-yard pass to Ahmad Bradshaw, to go back up by seven. The game stayed that way until the the 3:25 mark when Foles found Jeremy Maclin for a six-yard touchdown to tie it up. The Eagles defense made Indianapolis go four and out before Parkey hit the game-winning field goal. "We felt we had some plays (in the first half), we just couldn't make them," Eagles coach Chip Kelly said. "But we're going to play 60 minutes and we played 60 minutes." Darren Sproles made seven catches for 152 yards and a touchdown in the win.
