When will Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz be fully recovered from his torn ACL and be ready to play?
Speaking Tuesday morning on 94WIP, Wentz reiterated that his goal is to be back on the field for the start of the season, Eliot Shorr-Parks of NJ Advance Media reports.
“That is definitely my goal. Timetables and all those things are always such a fluid thing,” Wentz said. “Obviously can’t come out and make a declaration on anything, but my goal is to be playing in Week 1.”
Wentz has been rehabbing his torn ACL and LCL since he suffered the injury in the Eagles’ Week 14 win over the Los Angeles Rams. The progress he is making has been clear, as he is no longer walking with any crutches and was throwing the ball on the field prior to Super Bowl LII.
“So far everything has been great,” Wentz said. “It is obviously still early, just progressing through and everything looks good.”
And how has that rehab been going?
“It is definitely not fun. Nobody enjoys rehab. It can be a long process. Unfortunately, but fortunately, I’ve got a handful of guys in there as well. Great guys, great teammates,” Wentz joked. “The same way I do everything in life, I am going to attack it, and I have no worries and no fears it won’t get better.”
