One would think that a player like Foles coming off a Super Bowl performance in which he took home MVP honors would have little trouble leading the Eagles to start off the new season, but that's always easier said than done when looking at the last couple of weeks.

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

In the video courtesy of ABC6, Pederson would only confirm that quarterback Carson Wentz has not yet been cleared for contact, but refused to reports that Foles would be the starter for Thursday's season-opening game against the Atlanta Falcons. 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.

"Therefore, I'm not going to discuss it", Pederson asserted. When asked if there was still time for Wentz to return, Pederson said: "We got a lot of days left". "Trying to win a football game, you know?"

In his second season past 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. The page has turned to the Eagles, with the Falcons' Pro Bowl linebacker grilled about Philadelphia's run-pass option plays, quarterback situation and offensive line. It would be surprising if Foles didn't play much better on Thursday night than he did in the preseason. "What's a few (missed) games over 12 to 15 years?"

The wait is over and any advantage the Eagles tried to convince us they were getting by waiting is now gone.
