Football is back on Friday night at 8:oo p.m. Yes, it’s just preseason, but it is football nonetheless and Eagles fans are ready to get a glimpse of their team as the second season under Chip Kelly gets underway.

There are plenty of players to keep an eye on on Friday night, but some stand out more than others.

Here are the five players that I will be keeping the closest eye on when the Eagles take on the Bears in their preseason opener.

5. QB Mark Sanchez: Of course everyone will be watching to see how Nick Foles looks, myself included. However, you can expect to see a lot of fluidity out of Foles who should be familiar with the system and the majority of the weapons he’ll be working with.

Sanchez will get ample snaps on Friday night and the bottom line is that in the NFL you are extremely lucky if your second string quarterback doesn’t have to start a least a few games for you.

Sanchez has not played since he got injured last preseason and it’s time to find out if the Eagles got a steal in snagging him to backup Foles. Reports on him out of camp have been good so it’s time to see what he’s got.
