Carson Wentz hopeful he will be ready for Week 1


The Eagles tried to limit that aspect Wentz's game once he arrived the NFL. They didn't want to stifle the fire, creativity or playmaking ability that made their franchise quarterback unique.

He said that in addition to tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, he also tore the lateral collateral ligament.

Despite the ordeal, Wentz said he has no intentions of changing his playing style.

This is the first time Wentz has spoken with the media since his injury on December 10th. "I think, again, I'm very confident in talking with trainers and everything that the rehab schedule doesn't change a whole lot".

Some of Wentz's most impressive moments this season came when he shrugged off pass rushers or sprinted toward first-down markers without hesitation.

Before the Eagles suffered their most significant loss, Carson Wentz was the face of the number one team in the NFC.

While the LCL is widely considered the least significant of the three tendons to tear in your knee, the fact that Wentz has two injuries, as opposed to the originally reported one only heightens the concerns that he will not be ready to play in Week 1 of the 2018 National Football League season. Wentz is understandably "thrilled" for his fill-in Nick Foles, who has performed admirably in leading the Eagles to the Super Bowl. "That starts with ownership and on down".

Pederson, ever since he's got here, establishing that culture. "It's just such a fluid process, and we'll just see what happens".

"It's tough; it hits me a little bit", Wentz said. It's just that he isn't willing to abandon his in-game mindset in hopes of doing so.
