Football season has arrived and there will be live fans at Philadelphia Eagles’ home games. The Eagles and Steelers kick everything off tonight (Aug. 12) at Lincoln Financial Field at 7:30 p.m.

This marks the first time in almost two years that stadiums will be permitted to go full capacity. The Eagles recently updated their rules for wearing masks inside the Linc, in accordance with the City of Philadelphia and new guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

The Eagles lead the Steelers 48-29-3 in the all-time series, although those results came in regular-season games. Nick Sirianni’s team underwent a walkthrough on Wednesday ahead of Thursday night’s preseason opener. They last practiced on Tuesday morning when Jalen Hurts looked sharp in 11-on-11 drills.

But the team was bitten hard by the injury bug as several players — none bigger than left tackle Andre Dillard — left the session early. Dillard (knee sprain) and safety K’Von Wallace (groin strain) are considered week-to-week. Philadelphia released receiver Michael Walker after he suffered a leg injury.

On a more positive note, right guard Brandon Brooks (hamstring) was back on the practice field and left guard Isaac Seumalo (hamstring) was upgraded to day-to-day. Rookie receiver DeVonta Smith (knee sprain) was seen doing some light jogging on a side field.

Nick Sirianni Discusses Playing Time

Will the Eagles’ starters play in the preseason opener? If so, how many snaps might we see for Jalen Hurts, Miles Sanders, Jalen Reagor and the rest of the first-team offense? Head coach Nick Sirianni clued everyone in the other day prior to practice, although he kept his answers vague.

"We have a plan in place. I don’t want to tell you, ‘This is what they’re playing,’ because that could change; things change every day,” Sirianni told reporters. "What I do know is we have the joint practices too, to me count like preseason games as well, you know, against the Patriots and Jets. So, we have a lot of time to still think about that. I have a plan in place, but I just don’t want to disappoint you if I don’t follow through with what I’m saying.”
