Eagles coach Doug Pederson said Carson Wentz (knee) will need a week of 11-on-11 work to be ready for Week 1.
Wentz did see work during 11-on-11s early in camp, but the Eagles have since backed him off. On Tuesday during a radio interview, the quarterback said "it's going to be close" when asked about his availability for Week 1, but after practice, he said he hopes to return to 11-on-11 work next week. If that happens, he should be good to go for Week 1. Aug 14 - 11:41 AM

During an interview on SportsRadio 94WIP, Carson Wentz (knee) said, "It’s going to be close," when asked about his availability for Week 1.

"At the end of the day, it’s not just my decision. There’s coaches and doctors that really have the final say," Wentz continued. "I really like where I’m at and time will tell here." Wentz looked locked on for Week 1 when he got work during OTAs and avoided the PUP to start camp, but the Eagles have backed his workload down the last couple weeks. We would still expect him to be on the field when Week 1 rolls around, but the concern is enough to drop him a few spots down draft boards.

NBC Sports Philadelphia expects Carson Wentz (knee) to be held out of the entire preseason.

Wentz has been limited to individual drills since July 28. Coach Doug Pederson thought he saw "a little hesitation" in Wentz's knee on July 29. "It’s frustrating," Wentz said Tuesday. "Obviously, getting a chance to get out there and everything, I felt great, it was fun to be out there, but again just trusting what the doctors are saying." Wentz still appears to be on track for Week 1, but the Eagles could take it down to the wire before officially clearing him.
Aug 7 - 5:09 PM

Eagles coach Doug Pederson said he saw "a little hesitation" in Carson Wentz (knee) on Sunday.

"I think that’s natural," Pederson said. "It’s more about his head than his knee right now." The Eagles continue to be cautious with their public comments about Wentz's recovery, but NBC's Peter King was impressed by the quarterback in the practice he watched, writing "he looked absolutely, totally like the Carson Wentz that made this Eagles-rabid place swoon for three months last year." It would be a shock if Wentz is not under center Week 1.
Jul 30 - 11:38 AM

Carson Wentz (knee) practiced with the first-team offense in 11-on-11 drills on Saturday.

Notably, he practiced in full pads. At one point, two linemen made contact with Wentz's surgically-repaired left knee, though the third-year QB was able to avoid injury. Wentz still has some rust to shake off—he completed 15-of-20 passes with two interceptions during the 11-on-11 portion of Saturday's practice—though all signs point to him being ready for Week 1 against the Falcons.
Jul 29 - 9:17 AM

Carson Wentz (knee) is still targeting a Week 1 return.

"I like where we’re at right now," Wentz said Thursday. "We have a good plan." Wentz did add that he doesn't want to rush anything. Wentz has avoided the active/PUP list to begin camp, but getting technical about it, all it really means is that the Eagles don't expect Wentz to miss the first six games. Nearly all signs suggest Wentz will be out there for the opener, but it can't yet be taken for granted. Wentz's next step is getting cleared for contact.
Jul 26 - 2:21 PM

Carson Wentz (knee) avoided the active/PUP list.

Wentz is expected to be limited to 7-on-7 drills early in training camp. The Eagles plan to monitor his progress before clearing him for full team reps. It's a best-case scenario for Wentz as he works his way back from December ACL surgery. Avoiding PUP suggests the Eagles are confident Wentz will be ready for Week 1.
Jul 25 - 6:44 PM

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Carson Wentz (knee) will likely begin training camp on the active/PUP list.

The other option would be to have Wentz avoid the PUP list and practice on a limited basis. Either way, the 25-year-old isn't ready to practice fully coming off last year's ACL surgery. Wentz can be activated off PUP at any time and there's still optimism he'll be ready for Week 1 against Atlanta. Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles should get most of the first-team reps while Wentz works his way back to full health.
Jul 25 - 9:11 AM

Eagles coach Doug Pederson said he "can't say" if Carson Wentz (ACL) will be ready Week 1.

"I can tell you it’s not going to be a Doug Pederson decision. It will be a doctors’ decision," the coach added. "Carson will have to be 100 percent before he takes the field. I am going to rely totally on my medical staff." Considering Wentz took part in 7-on-7 drills during OTAs, this sounds like a coach being extra cautious. Still, it is at least a possibility Wentz is not ready to go Week 1, something to seriously consider at his sixth-round ADP.
Jul 16 - 9:38 AM

Zach Ertz said Carson Wentz (ACL) has the "same zip, if not more" on his throws.

Perhaps this is just the usual "best shape of my life" stuff we hear every offseason, but it is another piece of positive news for the rehabbing quarterback. Considerably ahead of schedule, Wentz took part in 7-on-7 drills during OTAs. Once a question mark for Week 1, Wentz now looks like a lock to be ready when the regular season opens.
Jun 7 - 9:12 AM

Coach Doug Pederson said Carson Wentz (knee) has been cleared for 7-on-7 work at OTAs.

Wentz continues to make quick progress in his rehab from ACL surgery. He'd already been throwing in individual drills and walking/running without a hitch, so this is just the next step in the process. It would be a major surprise if Wentz wasn't ready for Week 1, as ESPN's Chris Mortensen said Tuesday.
Jun 6 - 11:00 AM

ESPN's Chris Mortensen is "starting to believe" Carson Wentz (knee) will be ready for Week 1.

The Eagles have never announced an official timeline for their star quarterback, but Week 1 has been known to be the goal. Wentz was spotted "jogging without a hitch" in OTAs and has been progressing as scheduled in his rehab. Although Wentz went down late in the 2017 season and the Eagles opted to hold onto backup Nick Foles, we would expect Wentz to be out there against the Falcons on Sept. 6.
Jun 5 - 2:36 PM

Carson Wentz (knee) is "(jogging) without a hitch" in Eagles OTAs.

Per reporter Jeff McLane, were it not for Wentz's brace, it would be "difficult to discern that he was five months removed from reconstructive knee surgery." Wentz's OTAs involvement hints that he will be close to full-go when training camp kicks off in late July, but rehabs and timelines are always subject to change.
May 29 - 7:24 PM

Carson Wentz (ACL, LCL surgery) threw during individual drills at OTAs.

Wentz said he has not been medically cleared to practice, but he did plan to be involved during OTAs. He looked good moving around before practice, and he looked comfortable throwing the ball during individual drills. At this point, he appears on track for Week 1.
May 22 - 11:58 AM

Eagles coach Doug Pederson said Carson Wentz (ACL) will be "ready when he's ready."

"I’m not going to rush him out there. I’m not going to expose him," said Pederson. "Right now, we’re encouraged with the progress he’s making." Wentz has been cleared for some rehab activities including throwing, but isn't close to practicing yet and probably won't see any reps during the preseason. The goal is still for him to be ready for Week 1 against Atlanta.
