New Eagles Coach Pederson Says QB Wentz Not Likely to Be Active on Gameday Early On

Carson Wentz

Ever since the Eagles selected Carson Wentz with the No. 2 overall pick, they’ve made it clear that they want to be extremely patient with him. Wentz is a player the Eagles view as the long term centerpiece of the franchise, but not in any way some kind of short term fix, Jimmy Kempski of PhillyVoice.com reports.

They’re so dedicated to their patient approach, in fact, that Wentz probably won’t even be active on game day initially, according to head coach Doug Pederson.

“Typically, the third quarterback is down,” said Pederson. “It’s hard right now to look down the road, but if we had to play this week, Carson would be down. He’d be the third quarterback. He’d be deactivated. That’s probably the direction we’re heading, I would think is going that route. Obviously barring injury and, as you know, how this game is, but typically the third quarterback, whoever that is, is down on game day.”

Grew up in Philadelphia, huge supporter of all Philadelphia sports, primarily the Eagles. I have been through the ups and the downs with the Eagles organization, and I am still a huge fan. If you have any questions- Feel free to contact me.
