Carson Wentz Cleared for 11-on-11 Drills
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Carson Wentz has been cleared for 11-on-11 drills. The kicker though is that he's not cleared for contact yet. The Eagles are being very cautious with their franchise savior and want him to be ready — but not if it puts him in harm's way.
They have the luxury to do so as other teams with QBs that have suffered ACL tears are currently playing in the preseason (Deshaun Watson). The Eagles, on the other hand, have a Super Bowl winning backup in Nick Foles so they're perspective is "why take the chance?"
It seems like it has nothing to do with the progress of his recovery, they just want to make sure he's ready for week one.
Sorry Eagle fans, that means no Carson Wentz in preseason football. The good news is though, barring any setback, it looks like he might be on schedule to suit up week one.
Can't wait for that!
