Foles will start over Wentz for Eagles in season opener

Eagles plan on playing Christian Hackenberg against Jets

The man who performed the surgery on Wentz's torn ACL, Dr. James Bradley, advises the Eagles to exercise patience when it comes to the recovery of their franchise quarterback. In a testy exchange Sunday with reporters, Philadelphia's head coach refused to confirm who would be under center for his team, eventually citing a desire to maintain a competitive advantage.

"I'm not going to discuss it", Pederson said.

Antonio Rudiger thinks Chelsea will only improve under Maurizio Sarri
But Marcos Alonso set up a late DeAndre Yedlin own goal to win it for Chelsea and Rudiger said: 'That's a good sign. " Chelsea had Sarri come in and I understand that the club did not want to lose its best player".

That would seem to all but guarantee that Foles will get the start, unless his shaky preseason has suddenly put third-stringer Nate Sudfeld in the running. Since Wentz hadn't officially been cleared for contact heading into the weekend, it seemed like only a matter of time before it was announced that Foles would begin the year as the starter, bringing a whole new level of pressure to the table. If Foles can win them a Super Bowl, he can hold down the fort for a game or two in September. We'll be wondering about Wentz's return until he is back on the field, even if Pederson won't be thrilled to keep talking about it. "It just doesn't make a lot of sense". The Eagles were 10-2 when they arrived in play the Rams and won that see-saw game after Wentz departed with the lead - although they fell behind again before Foles and the defense brought them back. Given the struggles Foles has had during training camp and the preseason thus far, this wasn't what the fans were hoping for, regardless of the heroics Foles performed in last year's playoffs. This time of year can always be filled with excitement when looking at some of the players that were able to earn spots when seeing like absolute long shots a few weeks ago, but also can be devastating for the ones that came up short of making the team.
