    PHILADELPHIA -- Nick Foles, youre up. China Jerseys Cheap . Foles will be the starting quarterback when the Philadelphia Eagles play their second preseason game against the Carolina Panthers on Thursday night. Michael Vick started last weeks 31-22 to loss to New England and now its Foles turn to take the first snap. The two quarterbacks have been alternating days starting out with the first team so coach Chip Kelly said last week Foles would go first this time because Vick opened the first game. Vick was 4 of 5 for 94 yards, including a perfect 47-yard touchdown pass to DeSean Jackson in two series against the Patriots. Foles lost a fumble on his first series, but led the Eagles to a TD on his next one against New England backups. "I need to go out there and execute the offence and put points on the board," Foles said. "Thats always been the ultimate goal. Just learn from the last one and move forward, just take these practices and get better. Its the same way Ive approached everything Ive always done. Im not changing anything. Im going to keep doing the things that Ive done my whole life that got me here, and that is just work as hard as I possibly can and take it one play a time." Both quarterbacks are expected to play about one quarter apiece against the Panthers. Kelly has both listed as the No. 1 guy on the unofficial depth chart, and hes in no hurry to pick a starter. After rookie Matt Barkley took snaps with the starters in Tuesdays practice, Kelly joked that he would be the starter for Week 1 against Washington. "In the ideal world, wed like to get them into the first and second quarter, and not see those guys at all in the second half," Kelly said about Foles and Vick. "But it depends on how it plays itself out." Kelly didnt show too much of his up-tempo offence last week, though he did use a variety of formations and sets. Vick estimated the Eagles ran less than one-third of their plays. The Eagles started out of the huddle against the Patriots and then went to a hurry-up with Foles before slowing down when Barkley came in. Kelly wont give away his plans, but he suggested the team isnt always going to be running that same fast-paced style he used at Oregon. "Theres times were going to have to play fast and times were going to have to play slow," Kelly said. "Really, the game itself dictates what youre going to have to do. Ive said that all along. If youre up, you dont want to play fast, you want to work the clock. But there were certain things in that game we wanted to get accomplished. Our first full game with officials, so just trying to get a feel for it." Running back LeSean McCoy, an All-Pro in 2011, will see his first preseason action against Carolina. But five-time Pro Bowl left tackle Jason Peters likely wont play because of a hamstring injury thats sidelined him since July 31. On defence, the Eagles get a look at Cam Newton after seeing two opposite styles last week when they faced Tom Brady and Tim Tebow. Brady picked the secondary apart and the Patriots had their way running the ball against Philadelphias defence. "We would have hoped that it would look better than it looked," defensive co-ordinator Billy Davis said. "I was hoping to be further along at this point, but the film is the truth. The game tells you everything you need to know about where we are. Weve got a lot of work to do in tackling still. In order to be a great defence, weve got to make sure we can fit together as a team, and know how each individuals technique is attached to the other techniques which are attached. And were still in the early stage of that learning curve." New cornerback Cary Williams, who started for the Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens last year, will make his Eagles debut against the Panthers. Williams has been in the spotlight for comments he made first after skipping voluntary workouts in the spring and then saying this week the Eagles defence isnt feared. Williams later clarified his remarks, explaining that the Eagles are working toward building the type of defence the Ravens had. "I think every NFL defence, every defence in the NFL is striving to be a feared, respected defence," Davis said. "The only way you can get to where youre feared and respected is by playing great defence and being able to get off blocks, make tackles, stop the run." China Jerseys .Y. -- Bills receiver Stevie Johnson has a bone to pick with the NFL schedule maker. China Jerseys Wholesale . The 28-year-old from Calgary matched his career best after missing just one shot in his two rounds of shooting in the mens 10-kilometre sprint competition. Smith finished in 23 minutes 15. ;. Robredo, ranked No. 16, bounced back from an upset loss to Leonardo Mayer in the second round of the Royal Guard Open in Chile last week to down Carreno Busta in 1 hour, 25 minutes. On a day filled mostly with qualifying matches, fifth-seeded Marcel Granollers of Spain also entered the second with a 7-5, 3-6, 6-2 win over Aljaz Bedene of Slovenia, while Guido Pella of Argentina defeated Guillermo Garcia-Lopez of Spain 7-6 (6), 6-4 to advance. ST. LOUIS -- The moment that many St. Louis Cardinals fans clamored for since Alex Reyes callup from Triple-A Memphis on Aug. 9 will arrive Saturday night.With veteran right-hander Mike Leake coming down with shingles, Reyes will step in and make his first major league start at Busch Stadium against the Oakland Athletics.Regarded by many as the top pitching prospect in the minors before his promotion, Reyes has justified the hype in his first five big league appearances. In 9 1/3 innings, Reyes has allowed no runs and just five hits and four walks, striking out 13 with a fastball clocked as high as 101 mph.He also picked up a win in his second outing against the Chicago Cubs as well as a save against Philadelphia, giving a boost to a bullpen that struggled over most of the previous two months.Hes a top of the rotation talent, Cincinnati manager Bryan Price said of Reyes after he worked a 1-2-3 ninth in his major league debut on Aug. 9. It looks like they have another good one.The contrast between Saturday nights starters couldnt be more glaring. While Reyes relies on strikeouts, Oakland right-hander Zach Neal is your classic pitch to contact guy.Of all major leaguers who have pitched at least 25 innings, Neal (2-3, 5.49 ERA) has the lowest walks-per-nine innings and strikeouts-per-nine innings, issuing just two walks and fanning only 14 in 39 innings.Neals issue has been keeping the ball from leaving the ballpark. He has yielded 47 hits, including seven homers, in 39 1/3 innings. It will be his fiftth big league start after 10 relief appearances. Nike China Jerseys. At 55-73, the As season has essentially been reduced to contractual obligation and finding opportunities for youngsters in order to get an early start on 2017. One of those fresh-faced lads, third baseman Ryon Healy, is stamping himself as a keeper.A fourth-inning single Friday night enabled Healy to stretch his hitting streak to 12 games, during which he has batted .400 (18-for-45). In his first 38 MLB games, Healy is hitting .281 with six homers and 17 RBI.Hes seeing every type of pitcher and hes making the adjustments, Oakland manager Bob Melvin said of Healy. Hes not scared at all. Hes very respectful of his teammates and the game, but hes very tenacious.St. Louis won Friday nights series opener 3-1, playing one of its cleanest games of the year a night after a sloppy 10-6 loss to the New York Mets. The Cardinals didnt commit an error and even manufactured an insurance run with smart baserunning, a feature they havent often employed this year.In upping its record to 68-59, St. Louis looked more like a playoff team -- it leads Miami by 1 1/2 games for the National Leagues second wild-card spot -- and less like a team simply trying to outslug everyone.It was a good, clean win, St. Louis manager Mike Matheny said. It was good baseball all the way around. Just a good, solid game, the kind of game we like to see. ' ' '
