The Philadelphia Eagles' White House contingent would apparently have been a small one, as quarterback Nick Foles and potentially one other player were planning to attend the ceremony, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Monday fewer than 10 Eagles players were scheduled to appear at the White House with owner Jeffrey Lurie and head coach Doug Pederson before President Donald Trump canceled the event.

Foles, of course, was the MVP of Super Bowl LII, helping Philadelphia hoist its first Lombardi Trophy in franchise history.

After being granted an unexpected day off, the Eagles reportedly held an organized team activity practice Tuesday.
