Eagles practice observations Offense struggles before Thursday’s preseason opener

After months of patiently waiting, preseason finally got underway for the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday, as Doug Pederson and company hosted the Tennessee Titans in the first of four games over the next few weeks. He was 10/18 for 177 yards and a touchdown pass before getting hurt in Thursday's game. But he broke his left wrist on a hit late in the second quarter.

The Eagles lost Nate Sudfeld to an injury on Friday, but reportedly received some good news about the timeline of his recovery. Sudfeld fell backward and planted both hands behind himself in the turf.

As always, the Eagles left fans with plenty to talk about over the next couple of days after, and while it was frustrating to watch the team come up short in the 27-10 loss, there's no reason to hit the full panic button just yet.

If there's any consolation for Sudfeld, it's that the injury occurred on his non-throwing arm. Sudfeld was in line to be Carson Wentz's top backup.

After letting Nick Foles leave for the Jacksonville Jaguars in free agency, the Eagles already had question marks behind Wentz at quarterback.

The Eagles also have Cody Kessler and rookie Clayton Thorson on the roster. For now, Pederson doesn't plan to bring in another quarterback.

It's unlikely the Eagles would want to keep four quarterbacks, and Kessler has actual National Football League starting experience.
