Eagles to start QB Foles in Week 1

Wentz's surgeon advises Eagles to take 'cautious approach' with QB NIck Foles Expected To Start The Philadelphia Eagles' Season Opener
Jennie Wade | 03 September, 2018, 23:22

As defending champions, the Eagles earned the rights to being in the top spot for the 2018 NFL Power Rankings for most of the offseason, but between the team's shaky preseason along with the fact they now have to start the new season without Carson Wentz and Alshon Jeffery, that is no longer the case.

Following the season opener against the Falcons, the Eagles will face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 2 followed by the Indianapolis Colts and Tennessee Titans before facing perhaps their biggest challenge to start the season in the Minnesota Vikings come Week 5.

When asked what words were put in his mouth, he tersely responded, "You saw the reports".

Wentz would not be able to play without medical clearance for contact, so the revelation that he has not been cleared would suggest he will be out on Thursday. The page has turned to the Eagles, with the Falcons' Pro Bowl linebacker grilled about Philadelphia's run-pass option plays, quarterback situation and offensive line.

"He starts shooting you videos", Howard Roseman, the Eagles' executive vice president of football operations, told reporters on Saturday.

Woodlawn also is the final resting place for Parks and numerous Motor City's musical elite, including members of the Four Tops. The vintage two-door, three-speed LaSalle made by Cadillac is the same vehicle used to carry the Rev.

Coach Doug Pederson said earlier this week that he would make up his mind today about Thursday's starter but didn't plan to make it public until the day of the game.

Foles struggled a bit down the stretch of the regular season, but was electric during the playoffs and was the best player on the field during the Super Bowl.

In practice of late, Wentz has been splitting reps with Foles 50/50. He competed 71.9 percent of passes in three postseason games past year with eight touchdowns and one interception.

This obviously will not be Foles' first time filling in for Wentz.

He also said that if Wentz didn't get the call to start, he would be "kinda" surprised.
