Eagles running back expects to be ready for season opener vs. Falcons

Eagles quarterback Christian Hackenberg gets one more opportunity to stick around in the NFL | Bob Ford

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Eagles are planning to start Foles - not Wentz - in their season opener against the Falcons on Thursday.

Ajayi, 25, has been dealing with a leg injury which has kept him out of practice and preseason action. Foles threw for 373 yards and three touchdowns in Super Bowl LII and was named Super Bowl MVP.

With quarterback an uncertainty, and top wide receiver Alshon Jeffery not expected to play Thursday, Ajayi could be heavily featured against the Falcons.

Regardless, we know it won't be Wentz - who still isn't cleared for contact as of Sunday, per Pederson - meaning we can kick the can of his status down the road to next Monday.

It's all very well mugging India at Lord's when it's damp and dark, but putting them in at Trent Bridge was a daft mistake. WICKET! Hardik Pandya removes Alastair Cook for 17 runs, thanks to a fantastic catch by captain Kohli bat third slip.

The Philadelphia Eagles announced quarterback Nick Foles will start Week 1.

"A little bit, yeah, a little bit". "I don't want to put my game plan out there for everybody to see it and read it and teams can scheme". In fact, Corey Clement is the ideal example of just how important this time of year can be for players battling to make roster spots since he went from being an undrafted free agent making the team to Super Bowl champion. In a conference call with reporters, Quinn began his remarks by saying, "I understand you guys have some quarterback questions". He had been splitting first-team reps with Foles, but will move back into a supporting role for at least this week. He noted that there wasn't as stark a difference between the two quarterbacks' playing styles as when the Philadelphia had Ron Jaworski and Randall Cunningham in the 1980s.

Although the ideal scenario would be Wentz getting back under center as soon as possible for the NFC heavyweights against potentially one of their strongest opponents in the conference, Foles proved to be a formidable backup at the position previous year when the MVP candidate went down with the season-ending knee injury. He also took six sacks, including one for a safety during a dismal outing in the Eagles' third preseason game, when his team lost to the Browns, 5-0, and left Pederson reportedly describing Foles's performance as "very disappointing". That might help Wentz be ready by then. He competed 71.9 percent of passes in three postseason games a year ago with eight touchdowns and one interception. There's been a lot of questions about Wentz's status with head coach Doug Pederson getting quite chippy about the constant speculation.
