Eagles expected to start Nick Foles in opener

  • NIck Foles Expected To Start The Philadelphia Eagles' Season Opener

Of course, it would be a lovely tribute to Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles if he opened the Eagles season, but deep down, Wentz is the better QB who gives the team the best chance to win.

Ajayi, 25, has been dealing with a leg injury which has kept him out of practice and preseason action.

While the biggest story of Saturday for the Philadelphia Eagles involved the announcement of Nick Foles starting over Carson Wentz in Week 1, the defending Super Bowl champions like the rest of the teams across the National Football League were forced to trim down their roster to 53 players. Worse, Foles looked very much the opposite of the quarterback who won Super Bowl MVP honors.

With quarterback an uncertainty, and top wide receiver Alshon Jeffery not expected to play Thursday, Ajayi could be heavily featured against the Falcons. 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. The Eagles have chosen their Week 1 starter. 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.

But while DeSantis easily cruised to victory , Gillum, a former Tallahassee mayor, ended up exceeding expectations to defeat Graham.

"A little bit, yeah, a little bit". Pederson then refused to comment on that report or any questions about his quarterbacks. Pederson replied. "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. "Matt Ryan will be our starting quarterback".

In his second season a year ago after having been the No. 2 overall pick in the 2016 draft, Wentz had put himself in the MVP conversation before suffering a severe knee injury in Week 14. "What's a few (missed) games over 12 to 15 years?" Last week, Pederson also was annoyed about constant questions about Wentz's health.

Mailata had set up camp at one of the elite sporting facilities in the U.S., the IMG Academy, and during his workout an excited Stoutland began taking videos and sending them via his phone to the Eagles' front office in Philadelphia.
