Philadelphia Eagles Quarterback Carson Wentz hasn’t been a full participant in practice lately and it’s becoming clear that Wentz isn’t ready to go yet. The Eagles are adamant that this is just a precaution on their behalf because they don’t want to rush Wentz back. However the writing on the wall tells a different story and it’s clear Carson Wentz hasn’t recovered from the ACL and LCL tear that sidelined him at the end of last season. There’s no sense in Philadelphia trying to hurry this guy back because they would only be putting Wentz at risk. Which means you almost have to believe Nick Foles will be the starter for week one against the Atlanta Falcons. If Wentz can’t practice and he sits out all of the preseason games it would be foolish to throw him into the fire for the regular season opener. It just seems too risky and there’s a good chance Carson Wentz would get hurt again. So now you’re starting to look at this setback and wondering when Wentz will be ready to play again? To be honest it feels like the second half of the season would be ideal but even then Wentz might need more time. We’ve seen Ryan Tannehill try to rush back from a similar knee injury and actually do further damage to the ligaments in his leg. Why would the Eagles risk that with Carson Wentz? From a long term perspective that definitely isn’t the best course of action but it feels like Philadelphia wants to Wentz on the field immediately. That’s not in Carson Wentz’s best interest though and it’s a shame the third year quarterback is being put in such an unfair situation. He deserves time to recover before he goes out there and puts his body on the line.
