EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Get ready for more Matt McGloin tonight.
Backup quarterback Nick Foles worked out with a large group of starting and veteran Eagles around 4:30 p.m., two and a half hours before kickoff Thursday, indicating he won't play against the Jets.
Foles will go through this preseason without playing a snap thanks to a sore elbow that has bothered him dating back to last season with the Chiefs. Foles returned to practice on Monday, but was held out Tuesday with an illness.
McGloin will likely start the game and undrafted rookie Dane Evans will take over from there.
Here's the long list of players in that workout group with Foles (who won't play tonight): Fletcher Cox, Brandon Brooks, Ronald Darby, Brent Celek, Malcolm Jenkins, Vinny Curry, Wendell Smallwood, Zach Ertz, Carson Wentz, Chris Long, Mychal Kendricks, Derek Barnett, Trey Burton, Patrick Robinson, Tim Jernigan, Rodney McLeod, Darren Sproles, Jason Kelce, LeGarrette Blount, Isaac Seumalo, Stefen Wisniewski, Nelson Agholor, Alshon Jeffery, Halapoulivaati Vaitai, Nigel Bradham, Jason Peters, Lane Johnson.
Brandon Graham (elbow) and Jordan Hicks (groin) weren't on the field, but they're not going to play either.
While all those guys won't play, veteran defensive tackle Beau Allen wasn't a part of the group and was wearing game pants pregame, a good sign he'll get at least a few snaps against the Jets. Allen just returned from the non-football injury list earlier this week.
New corner Dexter McDougle will also probably get a few snaps after joining the team on Sunday.
Here are 10 players to watch in tonight's game (see story).
