Carson Wentz trying to help Eagles 'in any way I can'

Carson Wentz trying to help Eagles 'in any way I can'

"My goal is to be out there Week 1", said Wentz, per Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia. Wentz made it clear on Friday that he's going to continue to play quarterback the way he's always played it.

"He's playing confidently and getting the reps is big", Wentz said of Foles. I'm a part of this team just like anyone else.

"I'm trying to be involved in what I can", Wentz said, per NFL Network's Tiffany Blackmon. While the timeline is fluid, the Eagles quarterback is confident he can return for Week 1.

Had Wentz's projected timetable for return been somewhere deeper into the 2018 season, Foles' value to the team going forward would be far greater, as he could be the starter early in the season until Wentz is ready to return. "I'm very confident in that".

For the first 13 games of the regular season, as his team compiled the NFL's best record, he was arguably the league's most valuable player. Although predictions of the Eagles crashing in the playoffs without Wentz never came to fruition, his absence has kept Philly locked in underdog status this postseason - a designation that will follow them to frigid Minneapolis when they meet the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII on February 4. I Just want to be with them, show them what I see, and Nick's done a great job. The Raiders struck first on two first-quarter touchdown passes by Plunkett, who threw three TD passes in the game and was named MVP en route to the first of two titles he'd deliver to Oakland. "I wish I knew". But he returned for and won the NCAA Division I-AA championship game. My teammates, friends and fans, and my faith in the Lord got me through. I still voice my opinion in small pieces.

"There's the human element that wants to be out there", he said. Dr. Chao wrote on Friday that adding an LCL tear into the mix will not extend the timetable for return from the ACL tear, rather, it just makes the rehab a more hard and will limit what Wentz can do on the field during his initial return.

"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. "I'm just trying to help support him as best I can". "Injuries happen. Injuries are not going to change me". "It starts with the owners on down". "Seeing this team battle through these playoffs, and battle all season long through adversity, injury after injury, I wasn't the only one".

"We have something special here", he said.
