RapSheet: Foles will start on Thursday vs Falcons
1 September 2018 Eagles News
According to NFL Insider Ian Rapoport, Nick Foles will get the start versus the Atlanta Falcons.
The #Eagles plan to start QB Nick Foles on Thursday in the season opener, sources say. Carson Wentz (ACL, LCL) has done fantastic in rehab. But this is a long-term decision for the face of the franchise.

In the past, Rapoport has been wrong with some of his breaking reports. Would this be another opportunity for Doug Pederson to one up RapSheet? Pederson mentioned that 90 minutes before the game he would make the announcement and it will be interesting to see how this all plays out.
While it’s just one game for Carson Wentz to miss, I understand them not wanting to risk years of Carson’s career for just one game of his career.
Nick Foles has beaten the Atlanta Falcons on one of the biggest stages of his career in the playoffs and I’m sure he’ll be up to the task on opening night if they call his number to start the season.
