Per Ian Rapoport:
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.

It makes the most sense to be patient with your franchise quarterback. Why rush him and risk getting him injured again, perhaps even worse? He’s the future of the franchise.
He’s apparently very close to returning, which is a good sign.

What the “verge of starting” is I don’t know. But my gut thinks either Week 2 against Tampa Bay or Week 3 against Indianapolis.
