Nick Foles’ wife, Tori, announces on Instagram that she had a miscarriage

On Tuesday, the Jacksonville Jaguars said quarterback Nick Foles would be skipping organized team activities for what the club called "a personal reason." On Wednesday, we learned the sad reason for Foles' absence.

Nick's wife, Tori, announced in an Instagram post that she had a miscarriage after 15 weeks of pregnancy.

Tori shared the details on social media: "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."

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. 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. ❤️

Foles is entering his first season with the Jaguars after a successful tenure with the Philadelphia Eagles. Foles led the Eagles to four playoff victories over the past two seasons, including a victory in Super Bowl LII. Foles was named MVP of that game, which was the Eagles' first championship game victory since 1960. Foles signed a four-year, $88 million contract with Jacksonville in March that included a franchise-record $50.125 million guaranteed. 

Foles did take part in the Jaguars' three voluntary workouts held last week.

Tori has written a beautiful heartfelt post explaining what we have gone through this last week. We are grateful for all the love, support and prayers. 2 Cor 12:9

"He knows, like anything else, that we're here for him," Jaguars coach Doug Marrone said Tuesday. "The football part, we'll just figure that out. … My mind is on more so of what's going on on the outside, making sure I'm doing the best job I can for the player."

Nick and his wife, Tori, bought a home in Jacksonville in April and finished moving earlier this month. Tori is the younger sister of former NFL tight end Evan Moore, who was an Eagles teammate of Foles in 2012. Nick and Tori have a daughter who was born in 2017.
