You have got to be kidding me

Time to look for other options. Thorson should come nowhere near an NFL field this season and Kessler won't win many games.

NOTE: It is his non-throwing arm. So, that's a relief.

Wasn't watching the game but I believe he was injured on a play where the Tenn player was called for roughing. Did anyone who saw the play regard the hit as a cheap shot?

it wasn't anything crazy, just fell awkwardly. He fell on his butt with both hands behind him and they both bent back

Thorson had been very impressive in camp. He left observers with the clear impression that he was awful.

I know it was only a preseason game in which the birds barely played any starters at all but:

Thorson looks completely lost. Too early to cut a draft pick but I wouldn't be surprised if it happened.

Adams was fine after we lost RB after RB to injury but to have him on the opening day roster would be a mistake. He is practice squad talent at best.

Smallwood's time is up.

Beyond Ertz and Goedert, our TEs are unremarkable.

Eagles had several players injured last night on late hits and cheap shots. Ridgeway was hurt on a helmet to his knee on a chop block, Kessler was also hurt on a late shot to the QB.

This is why teams are getting further and further away from putting starters on the field in preseason. Guys trying to make a names for themselves that take borderline and sometimes illegal hits.

BTW the Eagles took a couple of those yesterday to.
