One would think that a player like Foles coming off a Super Bowl performance in which he took home MVP honors would have little trouble leading the Eagles to start off the new season, but that's always easier said than done when looking at the last couple of weeks.

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson has exhausted of the questions about Carson Wentz's Week 1 availability, but someone else close to the situation is providing an answer of their own.

Aretha Franklin's funeral to fuse spirit with star power
The memorial concert, titled "A People's Tribute to the Queen", will take place in Chene Park Amphitheatre in Detroit . The gold dress is the fourth outfit Franklin has worn during a week of events leading up to her funeral.

With quarterback an uncertainty, and top wide receiver Alshon Jeffery not expected to play Thursday, Ajayi could be heavily featured against the Falcons. Wentz has been doing some work during camp but has still not yet been cleared for contact. He's refusing to name a starting quarterback for Week 1. If your league starts only one QB per week, hopefully you have someone better than Foles. In a conference call with reporters, Quinn began his remarks by saying, "I understand you guys have some quarterback questions". Pederson replied. "I don't want to put my game plan out there for everybody to see it and read it, and teams can scheme". Foles' recovery thus gives Wentz more time to recover ahead of his reintegration on the field. He noted that there wasn't as stark a difference between the two quarterbacks' playing styles as when the Philadelphia had Ron Jaworski and Randall Cunningham in the 1980s. The Eagles only practice three more times, including Sunday, before the game. That might help Wentz be ready by then. The Atlanta game comes a few days shy of that nine-month mark. Last week, Pederson also was annoyed about constant questions about Wentz's health. We'll get a definitive answer Thursday, and, assuming it's Foles, the coach can only hope the Eagles will see the postseason, not preseason, version.
