Wentz still hasn’t been therapeutically cleared for contact, however Eagles mentor Doug Pederson won’t preclude the quarterback for the season opener against Atlanta on Thursday night.
Pederson again told columnists in an irritable trade Falcons vs. Eagles Sunday that he wouldn’t like to openly uncover whether Wentz or Nick Foles would be the starter when the safeguarding Super Bowl champions have the Falcons.
“I would prefer not to put my strategy out there for the general public’s viewing pleasure it and read it and groups can conspire,” Pederson said. “It simply doesn’t bode well.”
Wentz is coming back from medical procedure last December to repair two torn tendons in his left knee. Foles was the Super Bowl MVP in Philadelphia’s 41-33 prevail upon New England.
Wentz didn’t play in the preseason and just as of late came back to full practice, so it appears glaringly evident that he will miss in any event the primary amusement.
“We have a ton of days left,” Pederson said.
Running back Jay Ajayi has come back to hone in the wake of missing time. Left handle Jason Peters and veteran returner/running back Darren Sproles are relied upon to play in the wake of sitting out the preseason while proceeding with their recuperation following season-finishing knee wounds last season.
Pederson isn’t worried about players being corroded.
“They’ve rehearsed,” he said. “They’ve been in our practices. Practices are a great deal harder now and again than diversions are. We’ve seen all that we have to see.”
