1 player from each Eagles position group to watch vs. Browns

The Eagles are just moments away from kicking off their second preseason matchup of the summer, and the starters will rest on both sides of the ball.

Gardner Minshew will start at quarterback, but Reid Sinnett and Carson Strong are expected to see the bulk of the action.

At wide receiver, A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith are out, while Quez Watkins and Jalen Reagor will both play and see significant action.

On defense, both rookie defenders from Georgia will see action, while Darius Slay and James Bradberry will rest as well.

With kickoff just moments away, here’s one player from each position group to watch.
