Nick Foles is set to lead the Philadelphia Eagles on another playoff run after leading them to a Super Bowl last season. Unfortunately, the reigning Super Bowl MVP suffered an injury in the season-finale against Washington that cost him a $1 million bonus based on the number of snaps played. But if the latest reports are true, Foles could soon get some of that money back.
According to ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter, the Eagles are apparently working with Foles on a way to recoup him the $1 million that he missed out on.
Foles needed to play 33-percent of all Eagles regular season offensive snaps in 2018 to trigger the bonus.
The rib injury he suffered in Week 17 left him four snaps short of the bonus.

Foles is 3-0 as a starter since taking over in Week 15 following an injury to Eagles starting quarterback Carson Wentz.
In those three games he completed just shy of 77-percent of his passes for 962 yards, six touchdowns, and three interceptions.
The Eagles are slated to play against the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field later today in the final game of Wildcard Weekend.
Philadelphia and Chicago are set to kick off at 4:40 p.m. E.T.
The game will be on NBC.
