Eagles' Carson Wentz still not medically cleared for contact

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Carson Wentz still hasn't been medically cleared for contact, though Eagles coach Doug Pederson won't rule out the quarterback for the season opener against Atlanta on Thursday night.

Pederson again told reporters in a testy exchange Sunday that he doesn't want to publicly reveal whether Wentz or Nick Foles would be the starter when the defending Super Bowl champions host the Falcons.

Wentz is returning from surgery last December to repair two torn ligaments in his left knee. Foles was the Super Bowl MVP in Philadelphia's 41-33 win over New England.

Wentz didn't play in the preseason and only recently returned to full practice, so it seems obvious that he's going to miss at least the first game.
