    Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork. Wholesale Hurricanes Jerseys .com) - Philadelphia Eagles coach Chip Kelly on Monday confirmed that quarterback Nick Foles has a fracture in his clavicle and added that linebacker DeMeco Ryans has an Achilles injury. Though Kelly wouldnt speculate on the severity of the injuries, Ryans turned out to be a season-ending one, as the Eagles placed the veteran on injured reserve later in the day. Kelly said both players went for MRI exams on Monday afternoon, with multiple reports indicating that Ryans tore his Achilles during Sundays win over the Houston Texans. The second-year head coach didnt speculate on Foles, who didnt return to Sundays game after falling hard on his left shoulder in the first quarter. He has a crack in it, but we dont know the extent of it, said Kelly about Foles. An NFL.com report later stated that Foles injury will not require surgery but is expected to sideline him between 6-to-8 weeks. Mark Sanchez took over for Foles and helped the Eagles to a 31-21 victory, finishing the contest 15-of-22 with a pair of touchdowns and two interceptions in his first action since 2012. I feel really bad for Nick, but Im confident about Mark, said Kelly on Monday. He knows the system. His preparation is outstanding, always ready. We feel real confident, if Nick (is out for any length of time.) Ryans was hurt in the fourth quarter after intercepting a Ryan Fitzpatrick pass. He fumbled while falling to the turf with no one around him, then left the field on a cart. The Eagles signed safety Chris Prosinski to fill the available roster spot. A fourth-round pick of Jacksonville in 2011, Prosinski played in 48 games with nine starts for the Jaguars before being released with an injury settlement in September. Carolina Hurricanes Pro Shop . Chelsea took until the second half to trouble the leagues bottom team, but Schuerrle then ripped through the defence with ease at Craven Cottage to keep Jose Mourinhos side on track for the title. Stitched Hurricanes Jerseys . - Young and old. HOUSTON -- Collin McHugh has earned his spot in the Astros rotation. McHugh allowed two hits over 8 2-3 stellar innings as the Houston Astros beat the Oakland Athletics 5-1 on Sunday. McHugh (2-0), who was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on April 22 to make a start after Scott Feldman had been placed on the disabled list, followed up his first outing where he struck out 12 and allowed three hits in 6 2-3 innings at Seattle on Tuesday with another dominant performance. "When we sent him out there in the ninth it was with the complete hope that he was going to be able to finish what he started," Houston manager Bo Porter said. "That was tremendous. Attacking the strike zone with all three of his pitches and to pitch that well against a really good hitting Oakland As lineup speaks volumes to Collin and the way he and (Carlos) Corporan worked today." McHugh struck out seven and walked three, allowing one run in the longest outing of his career. His previous longest outing had been seven innings on Aug. 23, 2012, against Colorado when he was a member of the New York Mets. "I actually wasnt even thinking about the hits," McHugh said. "I was more mad about the walks. I walked a couple guys early, and with this team, you cant really give them free base runners because anyone in that lineup can do damage to you. As I kind of got momentum, I started to roll with it, and it got easier to make pitches and kind of feel the flow and go with it." After the first, McHugh retired 23 of the next 24 batters, including 19 straight before Brandon Moss was hit by a pitch with two outs in the ninth. Moss stole second and came around to score on Alberto Callaspos single -- McHughs first run allowed in 15 1-3 innings this season. Porter said McHugh has "earned his keep". "I dont think he put us in a tough spot; I think he put himself in a really good spot," Porter said. "Performance pretty much speaks for itself. This guy has earned the right to get the ball the next turn." McHugh said he hadnt had a lot of consistent starts in his career, so to know he would get the ball again in five days felt nice. He became the first pitcher in Astros history go 6 2-3 innings or more while allowing one run or less with seven or more strikeouts in each of his first two starts as an Astro. Carolina Hurricanes Store. Raul Valdes got the final out to complete the two hitter. Jed Lowrie, who singled in the first inning, drew a walk in the third for McHughs lone base runner until the ninth. "He had a great cutter early on and was a little bit harder with his stuff early on," Oakland manager Bob Melvin said of McHugh. "Then coming back later in the game he mixed in his curveball better and his change-up. He really did keep us off balance." The right-hander, who Houston claimed off waivers from Colorado during the off-season, got out of trouble in the first after loading the bases with two outs with a walk to Callaspo by getting Josh Reddick to pop out to end the inning. Jose Altuve had two hits, including a two-run home run in the seventh, and Jonathan Villar also had two hits, including a two-run triple. Tommy Milone (0-2) allowed four runs on five hits with two strikeouts in 6 2-3 innings. The left-hander was just effective for most of the day, retiring 12 out of 13, including nine in a row, but he ran into trouble in the seventh. Villar extended the lead to 3-0 with a two-out, two-run triple to the left centerfield gap in the seventh, scoring Matt Dominguez and Carlos Corporan and ending Milones day. Altuve greeted Dan Otero with a two-run home run to the Crawford Boxes in left to up the lead to 5-0. Dexter Fowler gave the Astros a 1-0 lead in the third with a groundout scoring Villar, who had doubled with one out and reached third on an Altuve single. NOTES: Oakland outfielder Yoenis Cespedes was out of the lineup for the third straight game with a strained left hamstring. Cespedes left in the seventh inning of Oaklands 10-1 win over Houston on Thursday after legging out an infield single. ... Feldman, who has been on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to April 18 with right bicep tendinitis, threw Saturday and was fine and was on track to make his next scheduled start, manager Bo Porter said, adding that could be either May 3 or May 4. Feldman is eligible to come off the DL May 3. ' ' '
