Nick Foles has returned to practice with the Philadelphia Eagles after passing the NFL's concussion tests.

The quarterback picked up the injury during the team's 17-3 loss to the Dallas Cowboys earlier this month, forcing him to sit out the game against the New York Giants on Sunday.

The 24-year-old told reporters: "I cleared everything and I feel good. I felt good out there today. It was a long week last week, but the most important thing was getting healthy. I had a lot of support, and I feel great. It was great to get back out there with the team and I feel like we had a good day today.

"There were definitely symptoms, but I'm healthy now and that's the most important thing. It's very tough. There's a lot of adversity, but I've always had my family there.

"A concussion is not something that you want to go through, but they were great to support me. My teammates were great and the coaching staff was too. A week later, I feel great and feel healthy. It was great being back out there and I'm excited to just keep going."

The Eagles face the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.
