Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson confirmed Wednesday that Nick Foles will remain the team's starting quarterback for Week 2 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, as Carson Wentz has yet to be cleared for contact, according to James Palmer and Mike Garafolo of NFL Network.

Wentz is reportedly expected to miss several more weeks as he continues to work back from last year's season-ending ACL injury.

Foles struggled in his first regular-season action after winning Super Bowl MVP honors, throwing just 117 yards and one interception on 34 attempts in a season-opening 18-12 win over the Atlanta Falcons last Thursday.

In more positive injury-related news for Philadelphia, Pederson announced that wide receiver Alshon Jeffery will do individual drills at Wednesday's practice, according to Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer. The Eagles' leader in touchdown receptions last season is reportedly expected to miss at least one more game following shoulder surgery in February.
