Eagles QB Mark Sanchez took Chip Kelly‘s offense out for a test drive Friday night, and looked right at home at the controls.
It was his first game action since December of 2012. An injury to his throwing shoulder last preseason required surgery and sidelined him for the entire year. He was released by the Jets and quickly picked up by the Eagles this offseason, and got to work on learning a new system while continuing to rehab the arm. Given the circumstances, it’s noteworthy that he was able to perform at a pretty high level Friday night in Chicago.
He finished 7-of-10 for 79 yards (93.3 rating) and led a pair of touchdown drives.
