He’s Back! Eagles QB Carson Wentz Gets Full Medical Clearance for First Time Since December

Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz received full medical clearance for the first time since his knee injury in December 2017 and will start Sunday’s game against the Indianapolis Colts, coach Doug Pederson announced.

“He has been cleared,” Pederson said. “We’re all excited about that. Medically, from the date of surgery to where he’s at today, all his rehab, 11-on-11, everything about it was a big part of getting to this point.”

Wentz has participated in non-contact drills and most football activities since training camp began. The Eagles scaled him back to “controlled” drills and workout environments only as preseason wrapped up, prompting concerns Wentz might not be ready to go until October, but Pederson said the QB now has no limitations.
