2013 NFL preseason games will conclude with Thursday’s games in week 4. New York Jets will be playing the Philadelphia Eagles at the Metlife Stadium in New York at 7:00 PM ET.
New York Jets
With the team’s quarterbacks Mark Sanchez and Greg McElroy injured, the Jets have signed former Green Bay Packers backup Graham Harrell, a league source confirmed Wednesday, the FoxSports.com reports.
Harrell will be available to play Thursday night against the Philadelphia Eagles. The Jets have five quarterbacks on the roster, but only two of the original four are healthy – rookie Geno Smith and Matt Simms, who’s expected to start Thursday’s game.
Harrell was released last Saturday after losing the No. 2 position to Vince Young.

Philadelphia Eagles have a new coach Chip Kelly. The previous coach Andy Reid was fired following 14 seasons. They are not in the Pac-10. The team played bad in 2011 and awful last year.
Quarterback Michael Vick, 33, a Pro Bowl starter in 2010, made several plays in the first two preseason games that proved he still retains his edge in running the ball. But a forced throw that resulted in an interception and throwing the ball straight up while going down on a sack showed that he needed to improve in protecting the ball.
The Eagles have potential to be a dynamic offense, for Bryce Brown and LeSean McCoy are strong running backs, tight ends Brent Celek and Zack Ertz can score consistently.
Billy Davis, Eagle’s fourth defensive coordinator in five years, is setting a new 3-4 alignment. End Fletcher Cox, a 2012 first-round pick, could be a breakout player, according to Washington Post.
