Eagles coach Doug Pederson announced on Friday that quarterback Carson Wentz is medically unclear.
However, Pederson was optimistic about where Wentz currently stands as the quarterback continues to recover from knee surgery.
I am very encouraged where he is right now, "Pederson told reporters during a press conference at the Eagles Training Center." He is making progress every day and we are continuing this process. He continues to throw and gets stronger.
"It's also a fine line, with just this season of possibly trying to do too much, too early, but our guys are on top and he's on it." He works very well. "
Starting quarterback has publicly set a goal at the start of the regular season to be available when the Eagles host the Falcons at Lincoln Financial Field on September 6th.
But Pederson took a cautious approach, pointing out that there would be no hurry back to bring Wentz back under the middle, for example, by using Cornerback Sidney Jones' return from a torn Achilles tendon.
"I love the enthusiasm," Pederson said. "I want that of all our players, of course, but again, I'm not – it's somehow going back to Sidney Jones – I'm not going to get him out there, I do not want to show him off, I mean, he'll be ready when he's ready and when we feel ready. "
With Wentz on the way to recovery, supporters Nick Foles should get a lot of work during the OTAs and entry into the training camp.
The Eagles also have quarterbacks Nate Sudfeld and Joe Callahan in the offseason roster.
