Carson Wentz (back) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Wentz is working through a back injury, though it shouldn't prevent him from playing Sunday when the Eagles host Carolina. Coming off ACL surgery in 2017, the third-year signal-caller has played well this season, topping 300 yards passing in two of his last three games. He's worth firing up as a QB1 in Week 7.
Oct 17 - 5:13 PM

Carson Wentz completed 26-of-36 passes for 278 yards, three touchdowns and zero interceptions in the Eagles' 34-13, Week 6 demolition of the Giants.

This one was an extended scrimmage for the Eagles, who dominated an overmatched Giants team from the opening whistle. The three-score effort was Wentz's first in four 2018 starts. Wentz showed excellent mobility, especially on his first touchdown. Wentz vacated the pocket and rolled to his right before throwing across his body to Alshon Jeffery in the end zone. After some rusty play in Weeks 3 and 4, Wentz has started to resemble his would-have-been-if-not-for-injury 2017 MVP self over the past two weeks. He has 10 days to rest up for a Week 7 matchup with the Panthers.
Oct 11 - 11:37 PM

Carson Wentz completed 24-of-35 passes for 311 yards and two touchdowns in the Eagles' 23-21, Week 5 loss to the Vikings, also losing a fumble.

Wentz added five carries for 26 additional yards. Wentz's second quarter fumble provided the difference in the score, as a scarily-fast Linval Joseph housed it for a 64-yard touchdown. Otherwise, Wentz took another incremental step into the season, producing 300 yards and two scores for the second-straight game while posting an 8.89 YPA after entering the week with a 6.93 mark. Wentz could have had a better day but was hurt by some drops. Wentz is passing both the eye and box score tests. He will be a borderline QB1 for Thursday night's game with the Giants.
Oct 7 - 7:41 PM

Carson Wentz said the "knee thing" is behind him.

The Eagles have opened the season slowly including a loss to the Titans in Wentz's second start last week, but the quarterback does not blame his surgically-repaired knee. "Physically, I feel great," Wentz said. "I feel I'm picking up [where I left off] on the field last year." Wentz did play extremely well in the loss, and he connected several times in that game with Alshon Jeffery, who was making his season debut. With those two healthy, the Eagles' offense will be just fine.
Oct 4 - 9:53 AM

Carson Wentz completed 33-of-50 passes for 348 yards and two touchdowns in the Eagles' Week 4, overtime loss to the Titans.

It was a disappointing loss for the Eagles, but Wentz performed well in his second game back despite his receivers letting him down a few times. He consistently threw lasers from the pocket including on Alshon Jeffery's touchdown catch and looked healthy when on the move. With Minnesota's defense scuffling, Wentz will be in the QB1 conversation next week.
Sep 30 - 5:36 PM

Carson Wentz completed 25-of-37 passes for 255 yards with one touchdown and one interception while rushing three times for 10 yards in Sunday's Week 3 win over the Colts.

Playing in his first game since Week 14 of last season, Wentz worked with a skeleton crew on offense in the driving rain. Wentz battled through enormous pressure, getting sacked five times, losing a fumble on one for his second turnover deep in Eagles territory. His day started off strong, completing 5-of-7 passes for 48 yards on his first possession, capped by a 13-yard touchdown strike to Dallas Goedert. The Eagles may get Alshon Jeffery back soon for Wentz, but their offense has struggled out of the gates to open the season as a byproduct of all their injuries. Wentz will enter Week 4 as a high-QB2 option on the road against the Titans.
Sep 23 - 4:29 PM

Carson Wentz (knee) has been cleared and will start Week 3 against the Colts.

This was the expectation over the weekend, but it is now official. It is always a risk to use a player coming off a long injury layoff, and the Eagles have serious questions at receiver. Even so, it will be difficult to sit Wentz in a great matchup against the Colts. Wentz threw for 3,296 yards and 33 touchdowns in 13 games last season.
Sep 17 - 12:05 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Carson Wentz (knee) is on track to return for Week 3 against the Colts.

Wentz is expected to be cleared for contact this week. He's reportedly looked great at practice, but the Eagles have stuck to their plan to move him slowly. Wentz is nine months removed from tearing two knee ligaments and has reached the point where he can protect himself. The Eagles may limit Wentz's exposure in his first game since last Week 14, but his return is an upgrade to Philly's pass offense.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Carson Wentz (knee) could be cleared for contact as early as this week.

Wentz seems to be making good progress in his recovery from last year's torn ACL and being cleared for contact would obviously be a step in the right direction. However, it might still be "a few weeks" before he's ready for game action. The Eagles aren't interested in bringing Wentz back at less than 100 percent and will continue to start Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles in his absence.

Sep 16 - 8:54 AM

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports Carson Wentz (knee) "hasn’t been ruled out for Week 2."

According to the Philly Voice's Jimmy Kempski, Mortensen said Wentz has yet to be cleared, but he is trending that direction. "He has reached that threshold in being able to protect himself," Mortensen continued. "So, sooner than later on Carson Wentz." Kempski doubts the Eagles will risk Wentz against a Bucs team they should be able to handle in Week 2, but it would not be surprising if he is ready to go Week 3.
Sep 9 - 10:48 AM

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports Carson Wentz (knee) is expected to be sidelined "several more weeks."

Per RapSheet, Wentz could be sidelined until October. Wentz reportedly looked great in pre-game warmups on Thursday, but the Eagles are intent on being as thorough and cautious as possible with their franchise player. RapSheet reports that had Wentz just torn his ACL he would have already been back by now. It's his LCL damage that has prolonged his recovery. Nick Foles, despite his playoff heroics, looked dreadful in the preseason. Foles' early play could certainly have an effect on Wentz's timeline.
Sep 6 - 7:15 PM

Eagles coach Doug Pederson said Carson Wentz (knee) is "close" to being ready.

Wentz has still not been fully cleared, but it sounds like that could happen any day. Especially with a mini-bye following a Thursday game, it would not be surprising if Wentz is ready to go Week 2. Nick Foles will start Thursday against the Falcons.
Sep 4 - 10:39 AM

Eagles coach Doug Pederson confirmed Sunday that Carson Wentz (ACL) still has not been cleared for contact.

Pederson declined to name a starting quarterback for Week 1 versus the Falcons, but it's become all but certain that Nick Foles will be under center for Thursday night's opener. Wentz won't be game-ready until he's cleared for contact, and at this point, it's unclear when that might be. Foles, who completed 23-of-30 passes for 246 yards against Atlanta in last year's postseason, will be an acceptable streamer for Week 1.
Sep 2 - 11:44 AM

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports the Eagles will start Nick Foles in Week 1 as Carson Wentz continues to rehab his torn ACL.

With Wentz yet to be cleared for contract, the Eagles didn't have much choice with the opener just five days away. Wentz isn't eligible for the reserve/PUP list — meaning the Eagles expect him back some time in the first six games — but he appears genuinely week to week. When Wentz does return, it could be without No. 1 receiver Alshon Jeffery, who also avoided PUP but is expected to miss multiple games as he continues to rehab his shoulder.
