After losing quarterback Cody Kessler to injury early, the visiting Philadelphia Eagles leaned on rookie Clayton Thorson in a 24-10 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars in the second week of the preseason Thursday night. Thorson, a fifth-round pick out of Northwestern, finished 16 of 26 for 175 yards with a touchdown -- a 38-yarder to Greg Ward Jr. -- and an interception. Kessler left after four attempts and was placed in concussion protocol, a week after backup Nate Sudfeld broke his wrist. Sudfeld is expected to miss a few regular-season games.

Starter Carson Wentz, who is healthy, rested for the second straight week, as did his old backup on the other sideline, new Jaguars starter Nick Foles. Sixth-round rookie Gardner Minshew started for Jacksonville, finishing 19 of 29 for 202 yards with a lost fumble. Jaguars receiver C.J. Board had a game-high five receptions for 54 yards.
