When Pederson took the podium for his regular media session, he was immediately asked the question foremost on the minds of his team's fans: Had he made a decision on who would start at quarterback when the Super Bowl champions kick off the NFL's regular season Thursday against the Falcons, and if so, who would it be?

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

Nervous time began in Philadelphia weeks ago, so much that reporters were left to poke and prod at coach Doug Pederson over the status of Carson Wentz.

Philadelphia Eagles fans are absolutely ecstatic that for the first time in franchise history, the team will open the National Football League regular season by raising their Super Bowl banner as world champions.

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

Wentz still hasn't been medically cleared for contact as he comes back from surgery last December to fix two torn ligaments in his left knee.

Even more exciting, Clement is expected to take on a much larger role in the backfield this season teaming up with Jay Ajayi and Darren Sproles since LeGarrette Blount is no longer in the picture.

Wentz was in the MVP hunt before tearing his ACL against the Rams. And Nick Foles will be my starter Week One.

He also said that if Wentz didn't get the call to start, he would be "kinda" surprised. The Eagles were 10-2 when they arrived in L.A.to play the Rams and won that see-saw game after Wentz departed with the lead - although they fell behind again before Foles and the defense brought them back.

Mailata had set up camp at one of the elite sporting facilities in the U.S., the IMG Academy, and during his workout an excited Stoutland began taking videos and sending them via his phone to the Eagles' front office in Philadelphia.
