Carson Wentz stays the course on his road to recovery

Carson Wentz stays the course on his road to recovery”

"We've started the running progression and all of those things, so I'm feeling good".

The oft-aggressive Carson Wentz, making spectacular plays with his legs and bursting through the offensive line on risky one-yard conversions tore his ACL last season and has been rehabbing for months.

He was on the sideline at U.S Bank Stadium in Minneapolis on February 4 and watched Nick Foles lead the Eagles to their first championship since 1960 with a 41-33 victory over New England. Nick Foles will practice as the starting quarterback in upcoming full-squad practices. Foles was named the Super Bowl MVP.

"Changing my style? That's not going to happen", Wentz said. It's human nature to want to be on that (victory) podium.

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. You grew up wanting to do that as a kid. "You've seen the horror stories of people coming back too soon and I will be careful with it". During Tuesday's media session, he added there isn't a specific timetable for his return to the field, but Week 1 remains "the goal", according to Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal. "I'd not think complacency will be an issue anyway, but that won't hurt".

Wentz assured the reporters that he and Foles continue to have a strong friendship. He's a guy that, I was excited when we [traded for him]. He recently expressed the desire to be a starter again during an interview with a Texas ABC affiliate while also highlighting the positives of remaining with the Eagles for another season.
