Eagles’ Pederson to remain patient in wake of injuries to QBs

Philadelphia Eagles coach Doug Pederson plans to examine his options following an injury to a second backup quarterback in as many preseason games.Reserve signal-callers Nate Sudfeld and Cody Kessler sustained injuries in consecutive preseason games while starter Carson Wentz effectively has remained a healthy scratch.Sudfeld is expected to miss a few regular-season games after sustaining a broken bone in his left wrist last week.Kessler was placed in concussion protocol after four passing attempts in Philadelphia’s 24-10 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday.”I don’t know if I have ever been a part in the 14 years I played or been coaching, where we lost two quarterbacks like this in preseason games,” Pederson said. “The beauty is we will get both of them back and we will evaluate Cody in the morning. We still have a lot of preseason weeks to work out a lot of details and, again, make those decisions at the end.”Rookie Clayton Thorson, a fifth-round pick out of Northwestern, finished 16 of 26 for 175 yards on Thursday with a touchdown — a 38-yarder to Greg Ward Jr. — and an interception.
