Earlier this week it was reported that former Eagles quarterback Nick Foles was not at practice in Jacksonville due to personal reasons. 

On Wednesday, Foles and his wife, Tori, revealed why. 

Here is the message from Nick and Tori, posted on Instagram, explaining that the couple recently had a miscarriage

Read below for full story.So thankful for this family right here and miss having them right down the street! 

Our weekend together was not quite as planned, but blessed by their presence and the help they provided us with an unexpected set of circumstances that nick and I suddenly found ourselves in.

As several of you knew, we were about 15 weeks pregnant with our 2nd baby. Early Sunday morning after a rough couple days fighting a “virus” of some sort, I went into sudden labor and knew something was wrong. Not long after we learned we had miscarried our baby boy. To fully labor and deliver and even see our baby boy was a pretty devastating process. Come to find that I had contracted an infection of pneumonia in the blood. The emotions go back and forth from immense and overwhelming sadness, confusion and anger to a firm belief that God has this fully in his hands and will use this for good. We cannot always understand or explain, but we know that is true.

We’ve endured some unique challenges as a couple so far, but never quite knew what something like this felt like and now we do. We have so much compassion and sensitivity to those who have gone through a miscarriage at any point and in any circumstance. We know they all happen very differently.We are finally home from the hospital and recovering physically from the infection with antibiotics (already much better) as well as emotionally from this traumatic loss. This will take time.

So many thanks to everyone who has reached out to us and who has been praying for us. Thank you Taylor family for being here this weekend. We had a pretty fun weekend planned, and it was turned upside down, but God knew we needed you. ❤️ Also a heartfelt thank you to Baptist Beaches hospital staff in maternity. What an incredible team of doctors and nurses that took care of us the last 4 days. ❤️

Eagles fans have already started flooding Foles' social media account with messages, expressing their love and support for the MVP of Super Bowl LII and his wife during this hard time. 

The outpour of love towards Tori and Nick just show once again that even though he might not be in an Eagles' uniform anymore, Foles and his family will always hold a special place in the heart of all Philadelphia fans.
