Wentz (ribs) threw on the field prior to Saturday's preseason game against the Colts, Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Already ruled out for Saturday's contest, Wentz took some time off from throwing earlier this week, after experiencing soreness last weekend. If he's able to ramp it up over the next few days, he could perhaps return for Thursday's preseason finale against the Jets. Either way, Wentz will open the season as Philadelphia's No. 3 quarterback, behind Sam Bradford and Chase Daniel.
Matthews (knee) will not play in Saturday's preseason game against the Colts, Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Matthews hasn't practiced since suffering a bone bruise Aug. 5, but he did increase his activity level the past week, and he promised he'll be ready for Week 1. Once healthy, Matthews will be the Eagles' clear-cut top wideout, with Nelson Agholor, Rueben Randle, Dorial Green-Beckham and Josh Huff all jostling for position behind him. With Mathews sidelined, Huff is expected to join Agholor in Saturday's starting lineup.
Smallwood (quadriceps) is slated to take the field for Saturday's preseason game at Indianapolis, Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Smallwood missed back-to-back contests to kick off exhibition season, but increasing his workload little by little for two weeks will seemingly yield an appearance Saturday. A cautious approach is expected, though, as the running back's quad continues to heal. All but guaranteed a roster spot due to his status as a 2016 fifth-round selection, he could be relegated to weekly inactives in-season with Ryan Mathews, Darren Sproles, and Kenjon Barner all positioned ahead of Smallwood on the depth chart.
Nelson (knee) is inactive for Friday's preseason matchup with the 49ers.
Nelson resumed practicing earlier this week, but he is not ready for game action just yet. With just one preseason game remaining, it's looking likely that Nelson will not play at all during the exhibition season. Both he and the Packers have indicated Nelson will be ready to go by Week 1, but his snaps could be limited a bit early on as he gets himself back into game shape.
Janis (hand) had surgery on his fractured hand and will be out for at least 4-6 weeks, Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports.
Janis fractured his hand during Friday's preseason opener against the Browns and was originally considered week-to-week. Now that he's been ruled out for at least a month, it'll be tough for him to survive the final roster cuts heading into the regular season. Along with Jared Abbrederis and Trevor Davis, Janis was competing for the final spot or two on the receiver depth chart in Green Bay, and his injury could wind up being the deciding factor.
Quarless (suspension) signed a deal with the Lions on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
With tight ends Eric Ebron and Brandon Pettigrew both recovering from injuries, the Lions are facing serious depth issues at tight end for this coming season. And while Quarless will still be suspended for the first two games of the regular season, he had a solid stint with the Packers and would be a formidable option for the team should neither Ebron nor Pettigrew be ready by Week 3. He is eligible to start practicing with the team immediately.
