Carson Wentz (knee) was seen throwing up to 50 yards prior to Super Bowl LII.
No longer confined to crutches, Wentz let it rip during pregame warmups on Sunday, throwing balls up to 50 yards off his back foot. Wentz is making noticeable progress in his recovery from a torn ACL and expects to be ready for Week 1. Despite the injury, the second-year signal caller has promised not to change his style of play.

Eagles coach Doug Pederson told Carson Wentz he hopes to make it back to the Super Bowl with "him leading the way."

Nick Foles was phenomenal throughout Philadelphia's postseason run, culminating with an MVP performance against the Patriots in Super Bowl LII. Despite this, there was never any real thought of Foles replacing Wentz as the starter. Wentz was a legitimate MVP candidate before his knee injury and remains the team's franchise quarterback. Foles is sure to garner trade interest this offseason, but the Eagles would be wise to retain him with Wentz not a lock for Week 1.

Carson Wentz (knee) is "hopeful" he'll be ready for Week 1.

Wentz also revealed he tore his LCL in addition to his ACL on December 10. He underwent surgery to repair both knee ligaments on December 13. Wentz was the MVP frontrunner before his injury and has no plans to alter the way he plays. The former second overall pick was originally given a 9-12 month recovery window, so his availability for Week 1 could go down to the wire.

Carson Wentz underwent surgery Wednesday to repair his torn left ACL.

The surgery was performed in Pittsburgh by Dr. James P. Bradley. Early estimates suggest he'll be out 9-12 months, making Wentz questionable for the start of 2018. Nick Foles will fill in at quarterback for Philadelphia.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports Carson Wentz will undergo ACL surgery "within a couple days," and Dr. James Andrews anticipates Wentz being sidelined 9-12 months.

Per Mortensen, Andrews hasn't spoken directly with Wentz, but the noted orthopedic specialist said expectations need to be tempered for ACL recoveries, saying repairs need 9-12 months. Wentz is almost certain to start next summer's training camp on active/PUP with a chance he misses the start of the season. The Eagles will roll with Nick Foles the remainder of the 2017 season.

Eagles coach Doug Pederson confirmed Carson Wentz suffered a torn ACL and is out for the season.

This is an awful development for a player who had legitimate MVP claims and a team with real Super Bowl aspirations. To add insult, the timing of the injury means Wentz is not guaranteed to be ready when the 2018 season rolls around, and he likely will be held out into training camp at the very least. With Wentz out, the Eagles will turn to Nick Foles, who managed just 42 yards on 10 attempts after Wentz left on Sunday, although he did find Nelson Agholor for a massive third-down conversion to help run out the clock. Foles starting is a big downgrade for the entire pass-catching corps, but it could force the Eagles to lean more on the running game and, specifically, Jay Ajayi. That said, it is difficult to spin this as good news for anyone in Philly.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Eagles are "concerned" Carson Wentz has torn his left ACL.

It's a worst case scenario after Wentz went down late in Sunday's win. More should be known after an MRI but it sounds like he's done for the year. Losing Wentz is a major hit to Philly's chances of making a deep playoff run. The Eagles are now forced to turn to Nick Foles at quarterback.

Carson Wentz was forced from Sunday's game against the Rams with a knee injury, and will not return.

Wentz was injured taking a huge hit from Mark Barron on a touchdown scramble that was called back. Remarkably, he remained in the game for four more plays, tossing a touchdown to Alshon Jeffery. Wentz did not have a noticeable limp as he headed to the locker room, but it's obviously ominous he was ruled out for the day so quickly. Nick Foles will finish the game at quarterback. Wentz had completed 23-of-41 passes for 291 yards, four touchdowns and a pick before departing, setting the Eagles' single-season touchdown record (33) in the process. Ever fearless, he also took a number of big hits even before the Barron blow.

Carson Wentz was forced to the locker room in the third quarter of Sunday's game against the Rams.

Wentz took a colossal shot to his lower body on a touchdown run that ended up not counting. He stayed in the game to toss a score to Alshon Jeffery a few plays later, but then headed to the medical tent. He then walked under his own power without a limp to the locker room. At the very least, it seems like he's going to miss a few plays. Wentz was having an eventful game before going down, making big plays and taking big hits.
Sun, Dec 10, 2017 06:58:00 PM

Carson Wentz completed 29-of-45 passes for 348 yards with a touchdown and an interception in Week 13 against Seattle.

He also fumbled out of the end-zone for a touchback. Wentz's only touchdown came on a wide open pass to Nelson Agholor from 27 yards out. It wasn't his best game -- Wentz missed a few throws that could have went for TDs -- but the 348 yards were a positive. Wentz hadn't been putting up huge yardage totals, getting held under 250 yards the last four weeks. The loss is the Eagles first in nine games. Wentz will look to rebound in a Week 14 matchup with the Rams.
Sun, Dec 3, 2017 11:49:00 PM

Carson Wentz completed 23-of-36 attempts for 227 yards and three touchdowns in the Eagles' blowout win in Week 12.

He added 29 yards on the ground. As has become the norm, Wentz was dealing early, hitting Zach Ertz for a 17-yard touchdown in the first quarter and throwing some pinpoint passes to Alshon Jeffery along the sidelines. He also flashed some of the magic in his legs in the second quarter, escaping pressure on a broken screen pass and scrambling for 16 yards to pick up a third-and-long. He found Nelson Agholor for a 15-yard touchdown four plays later, and he finished a dominant first half with an eight-yard strike to Jeffery. Wentz did not add to his stat line much in the second half before being pulled midway through the fourth quarter, but it was still another great fantasy outing. He will look to do the same against a decimated Seattle secondary next Sunday night.

Carson Wentz completed 14-of-27 passes for 168 yards and two touchdowns in Week 11 against the Cowboys.

It wasn't Wentz’s best game, but he still managed a pair of red-zone touchdowns. He also added 13 rushing yards and three two-point conversions. There haven’t been any signs of Wentz slowing down, with at least two touchdowns in six straight games. Wentz gets a matchup with Chicago in Week 12.
Sun, Nov 19, 2017 11:35:00 PM

Carson Wentz completed 15-of-27 passes for 199 yards and four touchdowns and rushed twice for eight yards in the Eagles' Week 9 win over the Broncos.

He hit Alshon Jeffery twice for scores, Trey Burton once on a deep 27-yard TD in the left-front corner of the end zone, and Corey Clement on a screen pass for No. 4. Wentz didn't light up the yardage column as he rested in the fourth quarter in favor of Nick Foles. Wentz has put himself at the forefront of the NFL MVP conversation. The Eagles go on their bye in Week 10.
Sun, Nov 5, 2017 03:51:00 PM

Carson Wentz completed just 18-of-32 passes for 211 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in the Eagles' Week 8 win over the 49ers.

It was his first game with fewer than three touchdowns since Week 4. The weather was a bit of an issue, as it was steadily raining in Philly much of the afternoon, and the Eagles really didn't have to push the pedal to the metal much. They coasted to a 33-10 win, and Nick Foles played the final 8-10 minutes or so as Wentz earned a deserved rest. Wentz's two scores went to Zach Ertz from short range and then Alshon Jeffery on a 53-yard bomb. Wentz ran for just seven yards, and his pick was more on rookie WR Mack Hollins not continuing his route. Wentz gets a real tough home date against the Broncos in Week 9.

Carson Wentz completed 17-of-25 passes for 268 yards, four touchdowns, and one interception in the Eagles' 34-24, Week 7 win over the Redskins on Monday night.

Wentz now leads the league with 17 passing touchdowns, two more than Tom Brady, Alex Smith, and Deshaun Watson. After not having a single three-touchdown passing game in his first 20 career starts, Wentz has accomplished the feat in back-to-back-to-back weeks, with 11 touchdown passes total in that span. He's put himself squarely in the MVP conversation as the quarterback on the league's best team. Wentz's night started inauspiciously with an interception on the opening drive, but it was all good from there. His first score was a 64-yard bomb to rookie Mack Hollins, the second a flat route to Zach Ertz near the goal line, the third a short fade to Corey Clement, and the fourth a laser strike to Nelson Agholor. Wentz gets another dream matchup next week at home against a hapless 49ers defense. Wentz is a legit QB1 moving forward.
