Eagles lose Kessler but ride Thorson past Jaguars

After losing quarterback Cody Kessler to injury early, the visiting Philadelphia Eagles leaned on rookie Clayton Thorson in a 24-10 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars in the second week of the preseason Thursday night.Thorson, a fifth-round pick out of Northwestern, finished 16 of 26 for 175 yards with a touchdown — a 38-yarder to Greg Ward Jr. — and an interception. Kessler left after four attempts and was placed in concussion protocol, a week after backup Nate Sudfeld broke his wrist. Sudfeld is expected to miss a few regular-season games.Starter Carson Wentz, who is healthy, rested for the second straight week, as did his old backup on the other sideline, new Jaguars starter Nick Foles.
