The Eagles plan to start the 29-year-old at quarterback when they face the Falcons in their season opener Thursday, according to a report from the NFL Network.

It had been reported earlier this week that Foles would start, but the Eagles did not confirm that until Monday morning.

But on Monday, he made his decision public, announcing to Dave Spadaro of PhiladelphiaEagles.com that Foles would be the starter.

Wentz enjoyed a sensational season with the Eagles last term before a knee injury ended his campaign and left Foles as starting quarterback through the playoffs.

Foles, who steered the Eagles to victory over the New England Patriots in the National Football League showpiece game in February, has faced an uncertain future with first choice quarterback Carson Wentz having recently returned to training. The team chose to sit him down for the start of the year, prioritizing his long-term health over the immediate needs of the franchise.

The team gave Foles a raise this offseason to reward him for his postseason performance and keep him in Philly for at least another year.

Australian rookie punter Cameron Johnston, after a strong pre-season, is also expected to make the Eagles.
