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

Eagles running back Jay Ajayi expects to be healthy for Thursday's season opener against the Falcons.

Now that training camp and preseason is officially in the books, it's only a matter of days before Week 1 is officially underway when the Atlanta Falcons return to the City of Brotherly Love to take on the defending Super Bowl champions in the Philadelphia Eagles.

Foles will start in place of Carson Wentz, who suffered a torn ACL against Los Angeles on December 9.

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. Will that be enough time for Wentz to be cleared for contact?

"He starts shooting you videos", Howard Roseman, the Eagles' executive vice president of football operations, told reporters on Saturday. "It just doesn't make a lot of sense". It could be the quarterback who struggled at the end of last regular season against the Raiders and Cowboys, or the one who torched the Vikings and Patriots as he led the Eagles to their first Super Bowl.

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.

In his second season previous year 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. He competed 71.9 percent of passes in three postseason games past year with eight touchdowns and one interception. Last week, Pederson also was annoyed about constant questions about Wentz's health.
