Carson Wentz: Also tore left LCL; rehab won't be significantly impacted

Nick Foles on cover of Sports Illustrated Super Bowl issue

Wentz and several teammates even created a devotional video series for the Bible app. Cody Benjamin of CBS pointed out on Wednesday that provided Wentz is fully healthy next season, he will relegate Foles to the bench even if the 29-year-old backup wins a Super Bowl.

"I feel good. It's a process coming back from something like this", said Wentz, who still isn't sure if the injury happened as he was leaping into the end zone at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum or if it happened when he was hit by Rams defenders. And that fine line to me is that you can still not just be happy for the team winning, but to be happy for Nick who is at your position, who could potentially be stealing another person's thunder.

When the Eagles traded up from 13-to-8-to-2 prior to the 2016 NFL Draft to select Carson Wentz, they found a quarterback who was arguably the best player in the NFL in just his second season, before it was cut short by his devastating ACL tear. I'm feeling great about that. With the injury and everything, rehab is going great. Of more pressing concern is his timetable for return. The Eagles quarterback limped into the locker room at One NovaCare Way with just a brace on his surgically-repaired knee. The alternatives was to shut it down and go home and give it up or continue to stick with it and be prepared and ready to go if the chance came.

Wentz says the playbook hasn't changed for Foles, who, looking at the numbers, has become more and more comfortable making decisions in the run, pass, option part of the Eagles' scheme.

This is the side of Nick Foles that the Philadelphia Eagles fans want to see. He's been in quarterback meetings and team meetings.

Wentz since has offered help to Foles in a supporting role, pointing out things he sees and offering his take on cutouts of plays communicated through the iPads on the sideline.

When the Philadelphia Eagles started the 2017 campaign, they did so with one of the best, young talents under center.

"Jesus was persecuted everywhere he went", Wentz said. I have heard nothing from him. That loss led to Terrell Owens joining the team, and that almost worked out, but ultimately finished with a loss to the Patriots in Jacksonville.

Trump could live 200 years if…, says White House physician
Dr Jackson said Trump scored 30 out of 30 on the test, adding: "The president is mentally very sharp, very intact". Specifically, skeptics don't believe the president actually stands at 6-foot, 3-inches and weighs just 239 pounds.

Wentz has experienced injuries before. "As a competitor, we set out with this goal in mind, to get here. Just having time now with the offense has been able to open up some of those opportunities down the field". "I can endure a little riff-raff here and there". "But then I'm in it".

"Guys just said, 'Hey, next man up.' That's the mentality we've had all year long", Wentz said, "And no one flinched or blinked".

"Any time you get sometime in December and a starter goes down, yeah, you make that connection", he told Newsday in a phone interview on Tuesday. But then I'm in it because I love these guys and I'm a part of this team just as much as anybody else. It's been a insane year and we work together every single day for long hours. Obviously, stepping in in a situation like that, it's tough. He didn't really have a preseason either, dealing with the (elbow) injury, so I've just been more than impressed with how he's stepped up and handled it and just been playing. The last game (against the Vikings) was unbelievable.

After the Eagles beat the Vikings, Wentz pulled on a "NFC Championship" tT-shirt and held the trophy over his head.

Wentz was enjoying an MVP-caliber season before going down. While Wentz is the Eagles' biggest cheerleader, he admits it's not easy watching his teammates take the field without him. A record of 1-4 in the NFC Championship Game and a lone loss in the Super Bowl against the New England Patriots meant there was one hurdle Reid constantly struggled to overcome that would have changed the way many view him to this day.

He didn't get hurt on a simple drop back. For those who can not see beyond your screen, I am raising my hand high in the air. "As far as playing aggressive and being the player that I am, I won't change". Guys suffer injuries. Our team, everyone, is an example of that.

You thought he was a classy guy? Would the Eagles be as successful?
