Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Nick Foles took time away from the team to spend time with his family after revealing his wife suffered a miscarriage.
“As several of you knew, we were about 15 weeks pregnant with our 2nd baby,” Foles’ wife, Tori, wrote on Instagram. “Early Sunday morning after a rough couple days fighting a ‘virus’ of some sort, I went into sudden labor and knew something was wrong.”
She continued, “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.”
Tori says she is home from the hospital and “recovering physically from the infection with antibiotics (already much better) as well as emotionally from this traumatic loss.”
Nick Foles, who signed with the Jaguars during the offseason, returned to practice on Thursday.
