tomorrow's training. mark will start. won't play very much. it will be a lot of matt and tim. we'll have a chance to see those guys in extended play. >> reporter: getting a guy out there that has not played a lot over the last two years, getting him comfortable in a pass rush and, of course, trying to make sure that he stays healthy? >> yeah, that's the decision i had to make. i think with the training sessions with the ravens next week will help because we'll get two good days in pads and then the ravens and packers. felt like we had more opportunities. >> reporter: is cromartie going to play and -- >> one more time. any other position besides quarterback won't be determined until after training. demarco will go today and tomorrow and then we'll make a decision. >> reporter: did sam try to talking out of not will heing him play? >> he didn't -- sam understands. i think he's disappointed but i think he understands.
it wasn't a debate. >> reporter: zach was announced yesterday? >> zach has a core muscle injury and he'll be out for a couple weeks now. >> reporter: he'll play week one? >> he'll be back week one but right now he's out. he's with the doctor today, so it will be a couple weeks with him, but he's not going to play in the preseason. >> reporter: the opportunities that tim gives you from a schematic standpoint because of his skill set, if you were to make the team, would it be fair to say that some of those things thaw might employ him to do we wouldn't necessarily see him in the preseason anyway? >> no. that's part of our offense and what we do. i think when tim gets in there, you'll see him run the ball a little bit. we have the ability to call plays, depending on who's in that. you'll see that. we're not trying to hide anything. the quarterback has the ability to carry quarterback. i don't think that would surprise anybody if we didn't do that in the preseason and all of a sudden tim had an opportunity
to play in the season and we sprung it on him. [ inaudible ] >> tim isn't a gadget guy. he's a quarterback. he's proven that so far when he's been out here. for all those guys, i said to begin with, they're in red jerseys. it's a different game when i get to sunday. we want to see matt play a while and i want to see tim play a while. we'll see what happens to those guys. [ inaudible ] >> demarco will go. kendricks will go. the only guy who's not going is -- brandon has an ab, an abdominal, so he's out. i don't have the extension on brandon. d.j. mcbride hurt his foot, so he won't go. all those other guys will go. whoa, whoa, whoa. no, he's out. [ inaudible ] >> me. >> reporter: your call?
>> yeah. >> reporter: no injury? >> no. he's coming along, done different things. we're trying to get him acclimated. he carried the football more than anybody in the nfl so we're trying to get him into greated. we look at everybody, where they are from a body standpoint. we manage every individual player here in terms of where they are, what they are, and my job -- not my job. our entire coaching staff, training staff, sports science staff is to get those guys ready to play in week one. [ inaudible ] >> malcolm jenkins is busting people's chops. i was laughing because he said k we get them fans because they got a day off, but, again, every player is dealt with individually. so what works for player "a" may be different from player "b" and that's the way we've always done it [ inaudible ] >> he's fine. we know what type of football player he is.
>> eagles' head coach chip kelly speaking to the media, two takes ought from the preseason opener. big news off the top is he said quarterback sam bradford, acquired in the off-season from the st. louis rams, expected to be the starter for this season, will not play on sunday against the colts in that preseason opener. bradford, obviously, coming off two consecutive seasons where he has injured his right knee, his acl. and coach kelly wanting to allow him to recover and acclimate as much as possible to the offense and not expose him to injury, is holding him out of the season opener. he says there will be plenty of time to get him tuned in in other preseason games. we'll see a lot of mark sanchez, tim tebow and matt barkley on the field sunday. you'll see that right here on nbc10. we are your official eagles station. coverage begins at 12:30 with the pregame, kickoff at 1:00 and we have the postgame for you right here, too. at 11:37, as this region prepares for the papal visit, a
lot of people are looking closely at this map. trying to figure out how it's going to impact them. this shows the security zones in center city philadelphia for the final weekend of september when the pope will be here. if you're in the green area, that's the so-called traffic box, that means you can drive out. you won't be allowed to drive back in, though. the yellow area, no cars at all. the red section will actually be fenced off. that's the area from art museum, to the right side of the screen, the independence mall area. you would have to walk through security to get inside that area. there are a lot of businesses inside that red zone that want to be open that weekend to capitalize on all the people in town. monique braxton spoke with some of this this morning. joins us live in old city. >> reporter: hey, chris, one of the reasons for the high security zone is because the archdiocese tells us pope francis will be speaking to thousands, likely a ticketed audience. before he arrives, that fencing
will be posted around the perimeter of the city. we spent the past few hours talking to merchants about their plans during the papal visit. most we spoke with are going to try to remain open, despite the city officials trying to calm their fears and reminding everyone philadelphia will be on an international stage. we found entrepreneurs who are saying, i'm out of here. >> there's going to be gates all over. no employees could get to work. the whole city's shutting down. i don't know how business is going to survive. we have to close for friday and saturday, the two biggest days of the week. >> reporter: how much money do you think you're going to lose? >> a lot. because how much business would we have had if we were open with walking traffic? so much. but if we can't get in here, what? am i going to sleep here? i don't have a bed here. i can't live here. >> for what i do with my clients, i think they'll
probably shy away. a lot of clients are actually going out of town. >> reporter: now, trash pickups are still being planned when the pontiff is in town. the city also tells us, they'll talk more in the coming days about taxi cab service and how they plan to accommodate the elderly and disabled. as we find out information, you'll be the first to know it. live along independence mall, monique braxton, "nbc10 news." philadelphia has plans to help people who can get close enough to see the pope in person that weekend. the president of the world meeting of families told us there will be 50 jumbotrons set up throughout the city that will be showing the papal mass live on that sunday. nbc10 was the first local news station to visit the pope's homeland of argentina and all next week we're sharing some new stories from jim rosenfield's trip there and we'll bring you an encore showing of "the people's pope," a half hour special looking at the deep roots of pope francis and how that shaped his papacy.

2000, is having considerations with supporters to see if there's a palt financially and politically. but a high-level source tells nbc news nothing substantive is happening. according to two sources, vice president biden who is vacationing in south carolina has started to reach out to close friends and allies to discuss a possible run, including what it would take to start this late. still all of the quiet conversations aside, hillary clinton's e-mail issue has made some democrats jittery. martin o'malley, already in iowa for the iowa state fair, telling nbc's kelly o'donnell -- >> you think the e-mail issue provides -- >> i think people are hungry for an alternative. >> reporter: meanwhile, the republicans waste nod time capitalizing on speculation the democratic field could get bigger. >> there's a lot of disarray in the democratic party, i'm sure, that people like joe biden and al gore are seriously considering it.
>> reporter: for her part, hillary clinton will try to turn the page in iowa, and she'll have company with most candidates expected to turn out and perhaps enjoy some signature treats. kristin welker, "nbc10 news." when people finally do vote for real, they may choose the politician who has the deepest voice. in a new study, a group of people listen to men and women as they gave a speech and more than 50% of the group said they would vote for the deeper-voiced candidate, which they associated with strength and confidence. barry white for president. what did you do during your summer vacation or did you take one at all? if your answer is no, you're not alone. coming up, we'll tell you how many americans are not taking any vacation this season. bill? >> as prime weather for taking some time off, but it will be changing over the weekend. the seven-day forecast when we come back.
