Aug 25, 2016 8:09 AM

Dorial Green-Beckham will have a chance to climb up the depth chart when he sees first-team action with the Philadelphia Eagles in their Saturday preseason game with the Indianapolis Colts.

Doug Pederson told reporters Wednesday that Green-Beckham, acquired from the Tennessee Titans last week, will see action with the first-team offense, which will play into the second half and perhaps the entire third quarter.

Behind Jordan Matthews, the Eagles also have Nelson Agholor, Rueben Randle, Chris Givens and Paul Turner at wide receiver.

Carson Wentz Out Indefinitely With Hairline Fracture In Ribs

Aug 14, 2016 10:25 AM

Carson Wentz is out indefinitely with a hairline fracture in his ribs.

The Philadelphia Eagles moved up to draft Wentz with the second overall pick.

"Carson felt some discomfort and soreness as we began this morning's practice. We decided to limit him throughout the remainder of practice and, as a precaution, sent him for a CT scan after practice. The scan revealed a hairline fracture in his ribs," Doug Pederson said in a statement. "We do not know an exact timetable for his return, but we hope to have him back before the end of the preseason."

Wentz remained in the game after the hit.

"I think it was the next-to-the-last play of the game," Pederson told reporters prior to the injury announcement. "He got hit pretty hard on the right side, stayed down on the ground for a while. [He's] just sore. Bothered him to throw a little bit."

Wentz completed 12 of 24 passes for 89 yards in Philadelphia's preseason opener.

Lane Johnson Facing 10-Game Suspension For PED Violation

Aug 9, 2016 3:44 PM

Lane Johnson, who signed a five-year, $52.25 million contract extension in February, is reportedly facing a 10-game suspension for violating the NFL PED policy.

Fox Sports reported that Johnson said he took an approved amino acid but tested positive for a banned peptide, and he is appealing the suspension, which was first reported via Twitter by Wildfire Radio and confirmed by NFL Network.

"We are aware that a member of the media has started a rumor that Lane Johnson will be suspended for a PED violation," said Johnson's agent, Ken Sarnoff, in a statement released to ESPN on Tuesday. "Lane has not been suspended and any report to the contrary is false. None the less we will not comment on my client's protected health information."

Doug Pederson Remains Committed To Sam Bradford As Starter

Jul 26, 2016 9:21 AM

Doug Pederson remains committed to Sam Bradford as his starting quarterback.

Pederson is entering his first training camp as the head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles.

Additionally, the depth chart still has Chase Daniel second and No. 2 overall pick Carson Wentz third.

"I've said all along that Sam's the guy," Pederson said.

"You've got to get through four (preseason) games and a lot of preseason. But going into Sept. 11, Sam's the guy. I'll stick with that. Chase is our No. 2, and Carson is our No. 3."

Pederson hasn't made a final decision on how he'll divide the quarterback reps among the three of them when the team commences full-squad workouts on Thursday.

Eagles Expect Carson Wentz To Begin Season As 3rd String QB

Jul 17, 2016 6:20 PM

Carson Wentz is likely to begin his NFL career on the inactive list for Week 1.

Doug Pederson expects the Philadelphia Eagles to have Sam Bradford and Chase Daniel atop their depth chart at quarterback.

"Typically, the third quarterback is down," said Pederson, according to the Philly Voice. "It's hard right now to look down the road, but if we had to play this week, Carson would be down. He'd be the third quarterback. He'd be deactivated. That's probably the direction we're heading, I would think is going that route. Obviously barring injury and, as you know, how this game is, but typically the third quarterback, whoever that is, is down on game day."

The Eagles traded up to pick Wentz at second overall.
