A well-known NFL quarterback says he learned to have joy during an injury this season and that it made him a better person and helped him grow in his faith.
Jacksonville quarterback Nick Foles is scheduled to start Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts, his first time in the lineup since he injured his shoulder the opening week of the season.
