As a result, Pederson hasn't settled on a starter for Thursday's season opener against the Atlanta Falcons.

The Philadelphia Eagles appear to be ready to go with veteran Nick Foles at quarterback to start their title defense on September 6 against the Atlanta Falcons. Foles has been starting for Philly since late last season, when MVP candidate Carson Wentz tore his ACL.

And having struggled latterly during his time in Spain, quickly adapting to the Premier League was never going to be an easy task. As long as Howe remains in charge, there is no reason why Bournemouth should think they have hit their ceiling.

"I'm not going to discuss it", Pederson said.

Pressed on who, exactly, among the assembled reporters had put words in his mouth, Pederson twice interjected, "Next question", before elaborating a bit.

That number represents a significant increase over the 64 deaths that had initially been counted by Puerto Rico Gov. The death toll for Hurricane Katrina, which battered the Gulf Coast in 2005, was more than 1,800.

Foles and the Eagles will begin their Super Bowl defense on September 6 by hosting the Falcons at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.

Regardless, we know it won't be Wentz - who still isn't cleared for contact as of Sunday, per Pederson - meaning we can kick the can of his status down the road to next Monday. The second-year quarterback threw 33 touchdowns and just seven interceptions in 13 starts last season to win 11 games. "It just doesn't make a lot of sense". 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. Foles' recovery thus gives Wentz more time to recover ahead of his reintegration on the field.

Wentz didn't play in the preseason and only recently returned to full practice. He also took six sacks, including one for a safety during a dismal outing in the Eagles' third preseason game, when his team lost to the Browns, 5-0, and left Pederson reportedly describing Foles's performance as "very disappointing". "What's a few (missed) games over 12 to 15 years?"
