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

Eagles quarterback Christian Hackenberg gets one more opportunity to stick around in the NFL | Bob Ford

Ajayi, 25, has been dealing with a leg injury which has kept him out of practice and preseason action.

With quarterback an uncertainty, and top wide receiver Alshon Jeffery not expected to play Thursday, Ajayi could be heavily featured against the Falcons.

Pederson did say Wentz had not yet been cleared to participate in contact drills.

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.

She said that when she asked her father what she should say in his eulogy, he replied, "Show them how tough you are". Former President Barack Obama noted during his eulogy: "So much of our politics can seem small and mean and petty".

It was always assumed that Wentz would be healthy in time for the season opener, but since he still hasn't been cleared, Foles will get to extend his 15 minutes of fame for at least another game.

"A little bit, yeah, a little bit". I don't want to put my game plan out there for people to see it, read it. "It just doesn't make a lot of sense". He had been splitting first-team reps with Foles, but will move back into a supporting role for at least this week.

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.

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. It would be surprising if Foles didn't play much better on Thursday night than he did in the preseason. That might help Wentz be ready by then. This time of year can always be filled with excitement when looking at some of the players that were able to earn spots when seeing like absolute long shots a few weeks ago, but also can be devastating for the ones that came up short of making the team.
