Carson Wentz speaks out on injury, recovery timetable

Carson Wentz speaks out on injury, recovery timetable”

After meeting with media, Wentz told Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia that he tore his LCL in addition to his ACL.

"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.

Although an ACL injury prematurely ended his promising 2017 season, he earned the prestigious honor of having the top-selling merchandise in the NFL this year, according to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk.

"Since the injury, everbody -the team, the fans, everybody -- have just been great to me", he said. "As humans, we want to be the competitors. I'm feeling great about that". "But then I'm in it".

"I truly believe I'll be ready for Week 1", he said Friday, via Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Wentz said Friday that whether it is in the press box or on the sideline, he couldn't be prouder of his team overcoming the adversity of his injury as well as those to Hall of Fame left tackle Jason Peters, middle linebacker Jordan Hicks, running back Darren Sproles, special teams ace Chris Maragos and others which have served as motivators for this team throughout the season.

"I'm trying to do what I can", Wentz said. I love these guys and I'm a part of this team just as much as anybody else. After an improbably successful 2013, Wentz threw 20 touchdowns and 20 interceptions in his next two seasons.

Wentz was replaced by Nick Foles, who has guided the Eagles to two playoff wins over Atlanta and Minnesota and their first Super Bowl appearance in 13 years. He didn't really have a preseason either since he was dealing with an (elbow) injury. The last game (against the Vikings) was unbelievable.

Wentz has received some criticism for his style of play.

"I am who I am", he said. People have been asking me if I'm going to learn to protect myself? "That'll continue to grow and develop, but as far as being aggressive and the player I am, that won't change". Seeing the resiliency of this team is just such a tight brotherhood.
