Last night's preseason action featured a Super Bowl rematch between the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles. Things didn't go quite as well for Nick Foles this time around, and he left the game with an injury.

Luckily for the Eagles, it doesn't sound like it is too bad as of now. After the game he said that he felt "pretty good," according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The team also hopes to have Carson Wentz ready to go to start the season, after he went out for the back-end of last season with a torn ACL and LCL.

If Wentz isn't good, and Foles can't go, the Eagles will need someone under center, obviously. The roster currently also features former Indiana QB Nate Sudfeld, Jets flameout Christian Hackenberg, and former Packers backup Joe Callahan.

After the Nick Foles injury, NFL analyst and former general manager Charley Casserly said the team should look into a trade for Teddy Bridgewater.

The former Vikings starter has looked sharp this preseason for the Jets.

So far, he is 17-for-23 for a team-leading 212 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception. His numbers have been better than rookie first-rounder Sam Darnold thus far, but Darnold or last year's starter Josh McCown could get the nod. That would make Bridgewater an interesting trade piece.

Casserly, who was the Washington general manager from 1989 to 1999 and later on served as an executive for the Houston Texans, says the Eagles should look into a move for Bridgewater if they need a quarterback to start the season.

Casserly was bullish on Bridgewater all night, even saying that his arm strength looked better than it was before his devastating knee injury.

Bridgewater did go on to throw a bad pick in the game. However, it looks like his comeback is coming along well. Wherever he plays his next meaningful snaps, it will be a really great NFL story.
