In the latest Philadelphia Eagles news we have an update on the Carson Wentz injury. Last season, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz suffered a season-ending injury. Making it the second year in a row his season was prematurely cut off.
With the team’s offseason program starting, the Eagles have some concern about their quarterback’s availability when the season starts. What will this mean for Eagles betting?
“It’s still getting there. It’s still getting there,” Wentz said Monday at the start of the team’s offseason training program, when asked if the bone is fully healed. “Some of this stuff just takes time, but that’s not really the main concern. It’s just kind of how I feel, and I feel pretty good with where I’m at.”
The Eagles discovered the injury in December, and at the time of the discovery, head coach Doug Pederson called it an injury that could keep Wentz on the shelf for up to three months. However, it’s been four months since Pederson made those comments and Wentz still hasn’t been cleared by team doctors to resume full activity.

“That’s the goal, but there really is no timetable, no rush, but I feel good with the progression I’ve been on,” he said. “Right now we’re kind of taking it week by week. I’m throwing some, I’m running some, and just kind of taking it week by week. I feel good.”
If Wentz isn’t cleared to resume football activities when training camp comes around, the Eagles will find themselves in an unfamiliar situation. Remember Nick Foles? Backup quarterback Nick Foles, who led the team to their first Super Bowl title in 2017, was allowed to walk in free agency. Foles has signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars. This, leaving Nate Sudfeld as their most experienced quarterback. Will the Carson Wentz injury hurt the Eagles Super Bowl 2020 odds?
Even though the coaching staff has a lot of confidence in Sudfeld, they will be hoping that Wentz will be ready for the season opener. Wentz believes he will be.
“I definitely feel better where I’m at [compared with last offseason] both physically and mentally. I’m really excited. Feels like the first day of school today a little bit. It’s exciting.”
