Wentz only to lose his backup.Nate Sudfeld broke his left wrist on a late hit in the second quarter of Philadelphia’s 27-10 loss to the Tennessee Titans on Thursday night. Sudfeld is scheduled for surgery Friday morning T.J. Hockenson Jersey , but Eagles coach Doug Pederson said the injury is not season ending and the team doesn’t plan to add another quarterback.“After surgery, I’ll have a better update,” Pederson. “Right now we’re comfortable with (backups) we have.”Article continues below ...Tennessee’s Ryan Tannehill tossed a pair of touchdown passes in his first game with his new team in his role as Marcus Mariota’s backup, and third-string quarterback Logan Woodside also threw two TD passes.“It was a lot of fun to compete against another team,” Tannehill said. “We’ve been working hard since the spring and to have an opportunity to play for real was a lot of fun.”Sudfeld fell backward after a personal foul by Isaiah Mack and immediately went to the sideline. He was wearing an air cast on the cart ride to the locker room.Sudfeld threw a 75-yard touchdown pass to Marken Michel and finished 10 of 18 for 177 yards. He’s replacing Nick Foles, the 2018 Super Bowl MVP who signed a four-year, $88 million contract with Jacksonville in free agency.Cody Kessler, 2-10 as a starter in three seasons with the Browns and Jaguars, replaced Sudfeld and took a late hit from Nigel Harris on his first play. He was 3 of 6 for 12 yards. Rookie Clayton Thorson was 2 of 9 and threw an interception.“I’ve known Nate for a while so it’s tough to see that, but it’s part of it Zach Brown Jersey ,” Kessler said. “I’m going to be ready to go and step in there.”Mariota played one series, completing 4 of 8 for 24 yards.Tannehill was 12 of 16 for 130 yards. Woodside was 15 of 20 for 138 yards.“It was awesome to get out there,” Woodside said. “I felt comfortable, a little nerves at first and settled down after that.”Tannehill is adjusting to a backup role for the first time in his eight-year career. He started every game he was healthy to play — a total of 88 — with the Dolphins and didn’t miss a game from 2012-15.Tannehill had a 1-yard TD pass to MyCole Pruitt and a 23-yarder to Anthony Firkser.Woodside hit Cody Hollister on a 25-yard score and Tanner McEvoy on a 17-yard scoring strike.“Our quarterback room is pretty special,” Mariota said. “Logan and Ryan both have been a tremendous support and I think for us it’s just competition. I like the atmosphere, I like the culture of the quarterback room.”THE ROOKIESEagles first-round pick Andre Dillard started at left tackle with Jason Peters resting along with others. Running back Miles Sanders, the second-round pick, carried only three times for 3 yards.“It was crazy,” Sanders said. “It’s everything I’ve been dreaming about. With a place like this, the fan base is crazy. Coming from Penn State Kyler Murray Jersey , I felt that same vibe.”Tennessee’s first two draft picks didn’t play.CLOSE-UP VIEWTitans new offensive coordinator Arthur Smith got his first chance to call plays in a game at any level. He was planning to sit upstairs in the coach’s box but ended up on the sideline because of issues with headsets. Smith was promoted from tight ends coach to coordinator when Matt LaFleur took the head coaching job with Green Bay.JV SQUADRunning back Jordan Howard and defensive tackle Malik Jackson were the only projected starters to play for the Eagles along with Dallas Goedert, who will see plenty of action as the second tight end.BOOTEDEagles kicker Jake Elliott nailed a 53-yard field goal but hit the right upright on a 40-yarder on the final play of the first half.FAMILY MATTERSTitans running back Dalyn Dawkins had 35 yards rushing on 10 carries.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP)New coach Pat Shurmur wants the New York Giants to do the right thing when the national anthem is played before NFL games this season, and that could be a problem.Under rules enacted by the league last week, players can stay in the locker room during ”The Star-Spangled Banner,” but must stand if they are on the field. Teams will be fined for violations.That puts Shurmur and the Giants in a difficult position.While there were only a few players kneeling during the anthem at the end of last season, two are currently on the Giants’ roster. Star defensive end Olivier Vernon got down on one knee during every game last season. Safety Michael Thomas, signed in March as a free agent after five seasons in Miami, has gone down on a knee during the anthem much of the past two seasons to support the movement started by former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick in 2016.Shurmur said the Giants are going to let things settle before talking about the new rule as a team.”I know certainly for me Byron Murphy Jersey , it’s very easy,” Shurmur said Tuesday after a practice at an organized team activity. ”I’m going to face the flag and take my cap off and listen to the anthem and be thankful that my family and I live in the greatest country in the world, and be able to kind of reflect on and be thankful for all the sacrifice that a lot of people have gone to, to help protect and secure our freedom.”Vernon did not respond to several requests to appear for an interview after practice.Thomas said he wanted to discuss the new rule with fellow players and Giants co-owner John Mara before commenting.”I am not committing to anything right now,” Thomas said. ”Just talking with my brothers and continuing to fight for our communities. Right now, we are not trying to jump the gun and step into anything.”Thomas would not say whether the Giants talked to him about the national anthem before signing him.The 28-year-old Thomas reiterated his protests have nothing to do with disrespecting the flag or servicemen.”A lot of people try and make this about something else than what it is,” he said. ”For me and my brothers, we know in our hearts why we are doing it and why we are taking this stance. We are not going to let it get distorted even if we have to find different methods and different ways to find a way to get our message across, then we are going to do that.”I am not going to get emotionally hijacked about it right now, not going to make comments Andy Isabella Jersey ,” Thomas added. ”Just keep doing what we have to do.”Thomas played in 13 games last season with two starts. He will be given a chance to challenge Darian Thompson for the safety spot opposite Landon Collins, but he also is expected to be a force on special teams.”It is very clear what they are thinking on special teams,” Thomas said. ”I am excited to be a part of that. I don’t think having that low standard on special teams is going to be acceptable here.”NOTES: DT Damon Harrison took part in practice for the first time in OTAs. … Collins, who had recent surgery on his right forearm, had a limited role in the practice. He wore a red non-contact jersey. … Neither WR Odell Beckham Jr., nor CB Janoris Jenkins was at the practice, which is voluntary. Both told Shurmur they would not be there. … Shurmur said Ereck Flowers is adjusting well to playing right tackle. He was moved there from left tackle after Nate Solder was signed as a free agent.—
