Eagles Allowing Josh McCown To Coach High School Team

Aug 30, 2019 7:48 AM

Josh McCown could enter the season as the No. 2 quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles, but they aren't requiring him to quit his part-time job.

He was coaching high school football in Charlotte, North Carolina during his brief retirement and will continue to do so.

The Eagles' practice schedule combined with the close proximity to Charlotte allows McCown to hop on a plane and head home Friday and make it back to Philadelphia for Saturday meetings.

McCown's son is the team's backup quarterback.

Carli Lloyd is considering an offer to kick for an NFL team. One unnamed team offered to add her to their roster for the final preseason game this week.

Lloyd kicked a 55-yard field goal during an Eagles-Ravens practice last week.

"I am having discussions with my husband [Brian Hollins] and [trainer] James [Galanis] about the reality of playing in the NFL," Lloyd told Fox Sports. "They both feel that I could do it and should consider it. So I'm seriously considering it, as it's a challenge."

All of the NFL's preseason games are scheduled for Thursday, but Lloyd is scheduled to play with the World Cup champion U.S. women that night against Portugal in Philadelphia as part of their victory tour.

Carson Wentz: Preseason Is 'Definitely Never Needed'

Aug 7, 2019 7:52 AM

The Philadelphia Eagles haven't revealed whether or not Carson Wentz will play in the team's preseason opener on Thursday.

Wentz doesn't seem to care either way.

"Preseason's helpful, but I don't think it's a necessity," he said. "No matter how much I'm out there I'll be confident in Week One. ...

"I think a little bit is helpful. But it's definitely never needed."

Wentz didn’t play at all during last year's preseason while rehabbing his knee and missed the end of the season with a back injury.
