Eagles' Carson Wentz says he still intends to play in Week 1


Wentz, a star Eagles quarterback, was on his way to an MVP campaign when he tore his ACL late in the season, sidelining him for the entirety of the team's first-ever run to a Super Bowl title. "It's human nature to wanna be on that podium, and be that guy". But because there's at least some uncertainty about Wentz's timeline, the Eagles said they intend for Foles to be on the roster at the start of the season. He missed the remainder of the season, including the Eagles' Super Bowl LII victory.

Wentz declined to give a timetable for his return but said he has been encouraged by his progress. "You grow up wanting to do that as a kid, but to not be able to be up there, I would not rather have anyone else be up there than Nick".

For the fans and teammates that have gotten to know Wentz over the last few years, seeing the quarterback's competitive mindset of wanting to be ready to go for the opener shouldn't come as a surprise at all. He said he did not want to delve into details of his recovery, but "I feel good. I can assure you that I'll be smart about it". "To not be up there was tough, but if it couldn't be me, there's no other guy I'd want there other than Nick". The Eagles have explored the idea of trading him this offseason, but the offers haven't yet matched their demands.

Wentz assured the reporters that he and Foles continue to have a strong friendship.

While Wentz continues his rehab, Foles will take all the reps with the starting offense during the upcoming minicamps, organized team activities and probably the preseason games.

"I'm happy with where I'm at", Wentz told the media.

"I'm not going to change", he said, per Reuben Frank of NBC Sports Philadelphia. "To go through that experience previous year was really cool".

"I know there was some stuff going around, a possible trade, and I would love the opportunity to be a starter again".
