  • Wentz's surgeon advises Eagles to take 'cautious approach' with QB

The Eagles have used Foles as their starter throughout the preseason while Wentz continues to recover.

Quarterback Nick Foles will start for the Eagles in their season opener against the Falcons on Thursday night according to the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

With quarterback an uncertainty, and top wide receiver Alshon Jeffery not expected to play Thursday, Ajayi could be heavily featured against the Falcons. It's likely that he won't miss more than just a couple of games, if even that many, so the Eagles just need Foles to get them through the start of the season.

"Therefore, I'm not going to discuss it", Pederson asserted. Wentz has been doing some work during camp but has still not yet been cleared for contact.

The team gave Foles a raise this offseason to reward him for his postseason performance and keep him in Philly for at least another year.

He said that the tone of the letter was "if you're not willing to give something, then don't come". But he added that if they did restart, the exercises would be "bigger than ever".

"After consideration and everything and about the football team and this decision, Nick Foles is the starter Week One", he said.

Wentz was in the MVP hunt before tearing his ACL against the Rams.

However, Foles did not carry that level of play into his preseason appearances, when he completed 16 of 26 passes for 171 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions. That might help Wentz be ready by then.

The news of Foles starting comes a day after John Clark of NBC 10 cornered the surgeon who repaired Wentz's knee, Dr. Jim Bradley, for some revealing on-the-record comments. "What's a few games over 12 to 15 years?"

The wait is over and any advantage the Eagles tried to convince us they were getting by waiting is now gone.
