Nick Foles will play this weekend according to head ball coach Doug Pederson, who spoke Monday from Philly after flying back from the west coast.

Carson Wentz will not go on injured reserve and will instead be listed as “week-to-week” on the injury report.

Pederson also said this about Wentz: “Obviously, when he’s healthy he’s our quarterback.” 

Good job by him squashing any controversy before it started.

Doug’s press conference didn’t feature much in the way of bullet point notes, but he had some more open-ended answers for macro type of questions.

Among the few bullets:

  • Avonte Maddox has played multiple positions, an intellectual guy who understands scheme, a young player who continues to get better
  • Isaac Seumalo is “getting better, we’ll see where he’s at.. maybe not this week.”
  • Jordan Hicks is expected to practice this week.
  • Tim Jernigan is “coming along, hopefully he can do something on Wednesday”
  • Sidney Jones is “probably more week-to-week.”

Time’s yours.
