One would think that a player like Foles coming off a Super Bowl performance in which he took home MVP honors would have little trouble leading the Eagles to start off the new season, but that's always easier said than done when looking at the last couple of weeks. Wentz would have obviously started if healthy, but it's not like Foles didn't earn this moment.
Pederson did say Wentz had not yet been cleared to participate in contact drills.
Pederson responded to the remaining media questions with "I'm not going to discuss it", and "next question".
Thursday night actually will mark the second time Foles has started the Eagles' season opener in his career.
"I'm trying to win a football game, and I don't want to put my gameplan out there for everyone to see it and read it, and teams can scheme".
Hamilton conspicuous by absence at Monza media events
Ferrari's concern was not to be beaten to a pit stop by Hamilton , as the Mercedes would then likely jump ahead. Bottas eventually pitted at the end of lap 36, leaving Raikkonen and Hamilton to battle for the lead.
It's certainly the right call for the Eagles, seeing as it wouldn't make sense to rush their franchise quarterback back to the field after suffering a serious knee injury. "Nick Foles will be my starter Week 1".
In practice of late, Wentz has been splitting reps with Foles 50/50.
Philadelphia Eagles fans are absolutely ecstatic that for the first time in franchise history, the team will open the National Football League regular season by raising their Super Bowl banner as world champions.
Either way, the decision means six opening-day quarterbacks over the past 10 seasons for the Eagles as Foles joins Wentz (2016-2017), Sam Bradford (2015), Michael Vick (2011-2013), Kevin Kolb (2010) and Donovan McNabb (2009). That might help Wentz be ready by then.
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.
