The 37-year-old was placed on the injured reserve-designated to return list after tearing his right triceps on Oct. 14. He had to be added to the active roster by Wednesday to be eligible for the playoffs.

Foles broke his throwing hand in last Sunday's loss to Washington, giving Michael Vick an opportunity to start the season finale against the New York Giants.
- Browns return man Josh Cribbs has apologized for a profane tweet following the Cleveland Browns' 34-12 loss at Denver. Cribbs said Wednesday he was mad at himself for muffing a punt, angry it contributed to the loss, then enraged after he received several derogatory messages.
- The status of New York Jets defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson is uncertain for this Sunday's game against Buffalo. The former first-round draft pick suffered a concussion and injured a knee during last Sunday's 27-17 loss to San Diego.
