'His arm is live,' Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said of Wentz. 'He hasn't had all the reps, obviously, that (QB) Nick (Foles) has had, that (QB) Nate (Sudfeld) has had, so his arm is live. He's fresh, and that's all the things that we wanted him to be at this stage.' Pederson didn't say whether Wentz would see any playing time in the Eagles' final two preseason games but left the possibility open that he could start the Sept. 6 season opener against the Atlanta Falcons.]]> 5276601 Mon, 20 Aug 2018 12:51:01 EDT footballguys <![CDATA[Carson Wentz (knee) remained noncommittal Monday when asked]]> Carson Wentz (knee) remained noncommittal Monday when asked about his status for Week 1 against the Falcons.

Wentz will “jump back into some team drills,” according to head coach Doug Pederson, during Sunday’s practice, which will be held outdoors despite the rain.

“It’s big to begin to evaluate him and see where he’s at,” Pederson said. “His arm is live. He’s moving around well. … He’s excited to get out there today.]]> 5275920 Sun, 19 Aug 2018 13:51:01 EDT Eagles Wire
<![CDATA[Not expected to see preseason action]]> Coach Doug Pederson relayed Sunday that Wentz (knee) is "where we wanted him to be at this stage," but the QB isn't expected to play in the preseason, the Eagles' official site reports.

Though Wentz has not yet been cleared for full contact, he'll "jump back into some team drills" Sunday, according to Pederson. In doing so, he'll split first-team reps with Nick Foles, who will be able practice despite having suffered a shoulder strain Thursday. Wentz recently acknowledged that his Week 1 availability will be a close call, but the franchise signal-caller continues to progress well and his status for the Eagles' opener ultimately figures to be determined by the team's medical staff.

<![CDATA[Carson Wentz set to return to full practice, report says]]> Carson Wentz spoke of this week went well and that as expected, Wentz will practice 11-on-11 when the Eagles take the field Sunday at NovaCare.]]> 5275083 Sat, 18 Aug 2018 15:09:01 EDT <![CDATA[Returning to 11-on-11 work]]> Wentz (knee) will resume 11-on-11 work Sunday, Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports.

Les Bowen of The Philadelphia Inquirer cautions that the return to full-team work doesn't necessarily mean Wentz will be cleared for contact. It does at represent a step in the right direction, with the quarterback apparently getting favorable feedback when his knee was evaluated earlier in the week. Wentz did some 11-on-11 work at the beginning of training camp, but the Eagles then scaled him back to 7-on-7 and individual drills to reduce the risk of accidental collisions. Wentz recently acknowledged that his Week 1 availability likely will be a close call, and Eagles coach Doug Pederson said the final decision will be made by the medical staff rather than the coaching staff.

<![CDATA[Wentz cleared for 11-on-11 work]]>
Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz will resume 11-on-11 drills once the team returns to practice on Sunday, according to an ESPN report. As of now there is no plan for Wentz, who is still recovering from a torn ACL he suffered last December, to play in the preseason. The final step towards Wentz playing in Week 1 is to be cleared for contact. (

FF Today's Take: This is the next step as Wentz eyes the season opener on September 6th. He's by no means a lock to begin the season as the Eagles starting quarterback. Even if he does, he'll undoubtedly won't feel 100% comfortable. Wentz is being over-drafted at his current ADP of 7.06 (QB6) in redraft leagues.]]> 5275068 Sat, 18 Aug 2018 14:42:01 EDT

That good news was overshadowed by the revelation that Wentz is “unlikely” to play in any preseason games, making it doubtful that he’ll get in real live game action before hosting the Falcons on opening night according to Chris Mortensen and Adam Schefter.
