Sudfeld took a late hit and tried to break his fall as he was tackled. He then immediately grabbed his left wrist.
Schefter described this as the “best-case scenario” for the Eagles who now have three healthy quarterbacks on the roster.
The second preseason game is Aug. 15, as the team travels to take on the Jacksonville Jaguars and former quarterback Nick Foles.
