Last week, social media was buzzing about the football season, not because of the looming regular season, but because Carson Wentz appeared to be hurt already.
The Eagles last week that Carson Wentz was day-to-day with a lower body injury.
“Carson Wentz (lower body) is day to day,” McManus tweeted. “Believed to be a minor soft tissue injury. Team being cautious.”
On Tuesday, Eagles head coach Doug Pederson was asked about the health of his quarterback and he made it clear that Wentz wouldn’t be practicing at this time, which would be a normal schedule before the fourth preseason game.
He said the injury to Wentz is “nothing major” and the former No. 2 overall pick should be ready to go when the 2020 season kicks off.
The former North Dakota State star finally played an injury-free season in 2019, but found himself leaving in the first quarter in the postseason against the Seattle Seahawks.
The Eagles went on to lose to the Seattle Seahawks by a final score of 17-9.
