Sudfeld is not ready to return to game action yet after fracturing his left wrist in an Aug. 8 game against the Titans. He underwent surgery Aug. 9.
“For now, this week anyway,” Eagles coach Doug Pederson said Friday when asked whether McCown would remain as the backup. “We’ll cross that bridge when we get to that point.”
The Eagles ruled out linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill (knee) and offensive tackle Jordan Mailata (back). Mailata injured his back in practice before the team’s final preseason game and has not practiced since. Grugier-Hill also missed his second consecutive week of practice.
