NFL notebook: Eagles QB Foles expected to be out 2 for 4 more weeks

Eagles quarterback Nick Foles is expected to miss another two to four weeks because of a broken collarbone. According to a Philadelphia Daily News report, a follow-up CT scan on the injured left collarbone revealed that it is healing normally.

However, replacement Mark Sanchez will reportedly hold on to the starting job if he continues to play well. He led the Eagles to a blowout win over the Dallas Cowboys on Thursday and has performed well in place of Foles.

Dolphins DBs ailing

Cornerback Jamar Taylor was ruled out of the Dolphins’ game Monday at the Jets, and cornerback Cortland Finnegan is doubtful, leaving the team thin in the secondary. Taylor separated his left shoulder last week, and Finnegan has been nursing a left ankle injury. If Finnegan can’t play, he’ll likely be replaced by Jimmy Wilson.

DE Long returns to Rams

The Rams activated defensive end Chris Long, according to NFL Media. Long was on the injured reserve-designated to return list after having ankle surgery. He was injured in the season opener.

Browns’ Cameron still sidelined

Browns tight end Jordan Cameron will miss his fifth straight game with a concussion. Cameron was downgraded Saturday from questionable to out for Sunday’s game at the Bills. Cameron did not make the trip with the team, according to multiple reports.

Wilson. … Redskins cornerback E.J. Biggers was ruled out of Sunday’s game against the Colts because of a concussion.
