Nick Foles named Eagles' Week 1 starter vs. Falcons

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Saturday the Eagles were planning to start Foles.

The Eagles open the season against the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday, as they attempt to defend their Super Bowl title. That has yet to happen, so instead, they'll have to settle for reigning Super Bowl MVP, Nick Foles. He is practicing, but hasn't been medically cleared for contact. The Eagles have chosen their Week 1 starter. When asked if there was still time for Wentz to return, Pederson said: "We got a lot of days left".

"A little bit, yeah, a little bit". If your league starts only one QB per week, hopefully you have someone better than Foles. In fact, Corey Clement is the flawless 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.

Falcons coach Dan Quinn downplayed the importance of knowing for certain who the quarterback would be in a conference call Sunday. "Matt Ryan will be our starting quarterback". The six-year veteran started the final three of games of the regular season in 2017 and then led the Eagles to their first Super Bowl victory in franchise history.

The phone comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, and that is the only variant of the device that the company announced. The Xperia XZ3 is backed by a 3300mAh non-removable battery and supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 and Wireless charging.

Even more exciting, Clement is expected to take on a much larger role in the backfield this season teaming up with Jay Ajayi and Darren Sproles since LeGarrette Blount is no longer in the picture.

Wentz had a chance to become the NFL MVP before his injury.

Thus Philadelphia might strongly prefer to give Wentz the start if that were possible, but while reports have been very positive about his mobility, he doesn't appear to be quite ready yet. "What's a few (missed) games over 12 to 15 years?"
