on Philadelphia's current status heading into tonight's preseason opener against Tampa Bay. The Eagles are dealing with a slew of injuries. The first and second string will play the first half. Rookie quarterback Carson Wentz is expected to play the third quarter. And first-year head coach Doug Peterson will call "scripted plays" to start the first and second halves. Philly is currently -4 home favorites with a total of 37.
"Just kind of keyed up for it and just looking forward [to it]," Pederson said. "There are a lot of things that have to go on between now and then with the planning and scheduling. Just sort of the detailing, even with the players, kind of just managing them. But at the same time, I know personally, it might be a restless night."
