Eagles QB Sudfeld needs wrist surgery

Nate Sudfeld will miss approximately six weeks with a broken left wrist that will require surgery, which could put the Philadephia Eagles in the market for a backup quarterback.Head coach Doug Pederson confirmed the injury Friday and said the Eagles will not go QB shopping immediately.Sudfeld was injured in the preseason opener Thursday night after throwing a 75-yard touchdown pass to Marken Michel.Sudfeld, 25, is projected to be the Eagles’ backup signal-caller this season behind Carson Wentz. Cody Kessler, the former Southern Cal quarterback drafted by the Cleveland Browns who played for the Jacksonville Jaguars last season, is in line to move up the depth chart.Sudfeld showed off his big arm as he eluded pressure in the pocket and launched a deep pass that hit Michel in stride for a touchdown. Sudfeld completed 10 of 18 passes for 177 yards and a score before his injury, which appeared to take place when he fell to the ground awkwardly while being hit by a pair of Tennessee Titans defenders.
