The Philadelphia Eagles will be without quarterback Nick Foles for at least six week, per Bleeding Green Nation. Foles will reportedly not need surgery on the collarbone he fractured Sunday against the Houston Texans.

BGN says that Foles, if he is able to play in six weeks, would be back for Philly's Dec. 14 game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Former New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez is now at the helm for the Eagles.

Philadelphia also placed middle linebacker Demeco Ryans on season-ending injured reserve on Monday. Ryans suffered a ruptured achilles tendon on Sunday.

What does all of this mean for the New York Giants? Well, theoretically it opens the door a bit for the Giants. Whatever happens with the Eagles and Dallas Cowboys won't matter, however, unless the Giants start winning games.

The Monday nighter against the Indianapolis Colts would be a good place for Big Blue to get started.
