Eagles' Carson Wentz: Advances to 7-on-7 work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said Wednesday that Wentz (knee) has begun participating in 7-on-7 drills during Philadelphia's offseason program, Zack Rosenblatt of NJ.com reports.

Wentz's presence on the field in any capacity less than six months after undergoing surgery to repair a torn ACL in his left knee was already viewed as a major win for the Eagles, but the fact that the quarterback has now graduated from individual drills to team work indicates he's progressing at a truly remarkable pace. While Wentz still has multiple checkpoints in his recovery to clear before he's given a clean bill of health, it appears that any fears the signal-caller might not be ready for Week 1 have substantially diminished over the past several weeks. Despite Wentz's seemingly setback-free rehab, there's no indication the Eagles intend to gauge other teams' interest in acquiring Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles, who will presumably remain a high-quality insurance option behind Wentz entering the upcoming campaign.

Eagles' Carson Wentz: Participates in individual drills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wentz (knee) took part in individual drills during Tuesday's OTA session, The News Journal reports.

Wentz has yet to be cleared for team activities, but even participation during individual drills is a good sign for him a little over five months removed from a torn ACL. Backup Nick Foles will continue to guide the offense this offseason as Wentz progresses toward a return, but the second-year signal-caller expressed confidence in early May that he will be ready for Week 1.

Eagles' Carson Wentz: Remains confident for Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wentz (knee) said he is very confident he will be ready for Week 1.

While he presumably hasn't progressed to cutting or agility work, the 25-year-old quarterback did begin a running program at some point in April. Per NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, Wentz recently sent film to QB gurus Tom House and Adam Dedeaux, who said that his throwing mechanics appear unchanged. Despite the consistent positivity so far, Wentz's recovery will require close monitoring in the coming months, as the timing of his ACL tear in December will make it a challenge to be ready for Week 1. He'll likely be limited or unavailable when the Eagles open training camp in late July.

Eagles' Carson Wentz: Progresses to running
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wentz said Tuesday that he has begun the running portion of his rehab from a torn ACL in his left knee, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

There's no evidence Wentz is running on the field, meaning he likely is contained to an Alter-G treadmill in order to rebuild strength and movement in the knee. During Tuesday's media session, he added there isn't a specific timetable for his return to the field, but Week 1 remains "the goal," according to Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal. Wentz is confident he doesn't have to make an appearance in the preseason to achieve that objective, but he'd be beating the most optimistic timeline after tearing up his knee Dec. 10. As long as Wentz remains in recovery mode, Super Bowl LII hero Nick Foles will direct the Eagles offense.

Eagles' Carson Wentz: Won't be around for OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said Tuesday that Wentz (knee) won't join the team for its offseason program during the spring, Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Earlier this month, Eagles executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman wouldn't commit to Wentz being on the field in Week 1 of the upcoming season, so the signal caller's absence from OTAs doesn't really come as a surprise. While his teammates reconvene at the Eagles' facilities in April, Wentz will continue to rehab his surgically repaired left knee with the hope of being available in some capacity for the beginning of training camp. Even without any setbacks in his recovery in the coming months, Wentz would still likely be held out of contact drills in the initial weeks of camp, thereby allowing Super Bowl 52 MVP Nick Foles and third-string quarterback Nate Sudfeld to pick up more snaps.
