Eagles coach Doug Pederson said after Monday night’s win that he would decide by Wednesday about how to use his starters in Week 17, adding that he assumes quarterback Nick Foles will “probably have to play some” because they only have two quarterbacks on the active roster. Pederson reiterated both points during his Tuesday press conference, noting that he wants to get Foles “as many reps as he can” given Foles’ relatively recent move into the starting lineup. Pederson also has a backup that’s never played in the regular season in Nate Sudfeld and the coach said he’d like to see Sudfeld, who joined the Eagles off waivers at the start of the season, get that under his belt before being forced into a playoff game.
