Eagles QB Carson Wentz was on the field and throwing at Tuesday's OTA session, a little more than 5 months after tearing the ACL and LCL in his left knee. "It's always an exciting time ... any time you're rehabbing from any injury you have to be careful," Wentz said. "I'll be involved in a handful of things (at OTAs) ... the mental aspect is just as important as the physical. I'm just learning how to trust it. Trust the knee, trust the movement. Every day gets a little bit better. I feel like I've made really good strides both mentally or physically." Wentz's rehab has gone smoothly by all accounts. He's seemingly on track to be cleared in time for Week 1. We'll continue to track his progress throughout the summer.

Eagles HC Doug Pederson said Friday that he's "highly encouraged" by QB Carson Wentz's progress as he rehabs last year's torn ACL and LCL. "He's making progress each day, and we just continue that process, and he continues to throw and get stronger," Pederson said. "It's a fine line, too, this time of year, of maybe trying to do too much, too soon. But our guys are on top of it, he's on top of it, he's managing it extremely well." Wentz has been throwing to teammates on the practice field but hasn't yet been medically cleared to do more than that. He's aiming for a Week 1 return, although Pederson isn't making any promises. "I'm not going to rush him out there. I'm not going to expose him," Pederson said. "He'll be ready when he's ready, and when we feel he's ready. Right now, we're encouraged with the progress he's making."

Eagles QB Carson Wentz said Monday that his "goal is to be ready Week 1" as he recovers from last December's torn ACL and LCL in his left knee. "Rehab has been great," he added. "It's quite the process. So far everything is going well." Even without setbacks, Wentz is right up against it with the 2018 campaign kicking off just about 9 months after his injury. He won't do much in training camp, is unlikely to get any preseason reps and shouldn't be considered a lock to be out there for the opener. Wentz is coming off the board as QB5 in the middle of the 8th round in recent best-ball drafts.

Eagles QB Carson Wentz revealed on Friday that, in addition to the ACL, he also tore the LCL in his left knee. He had both ligaments surgically repaired on December 13 -- 3 days after going down vs. the Rams. Wentz said that the 2nd ligament tear doesn't impact his recovery timeline and that he expects to be ready for the start of the 2018 campaign. "I feel very confident, I truly believe, my goal is to be ready for Week 1," he said. "I’m going to push and do everything I can to be ready, and I’m confident in that."

Eagles HC Doug Pederson confirmed on Monday that QB Carson Wentz has a torn ACL and is done for the season. It's a brutal end to a breakout season for the 2nd-year QB. He finishes with 3,296 passing yards, an Eagles-record 33 TDs and just 7 INTs. He added another 299 yards on the ground. Wentz is sitting 2nd among QBs in fantasy points. He'll have almost exactly 9 months to get ready for the start of the 2018 campaign. His rehab will obviously be 1 of the biggest storylines of the offseason. Philly, meanwhile, will roll with QB Nick Foles the rest of the way. The 28-year-old has 36 starts under his belt and sports a career 60.5% completion rate, 7.2 yards per attempt and 56:27 TD-to-INT ratio. It's also worth noting that Eagles HC Doug Pederson was Foles' QB coach during Foles' first 2 NFL seasons. He'll be a QB2 option the next 2 weeks in favorable matchups against the Giants and Raiders. But the Wentz loss is still a significant downgrade for this Eagles offense.

Injury Predictor

Last year, Wentz suffered a hairline fracture to his ribs in the preseason opener. Multiple outlets reported that Wentz also dealt with shoulder soreness later in the season — hardly a surprise considering he chucked it 607 times. Fortunately, he’s back to full strength after gutting out a 16-game rookie campaign.
