Carson Wentz injury update: Eagles chances to land 3rd first-round pick looking better
It looks like the Eagles’ chances to land a third first-round pick got a bit better earlier today. A few weeks back, former Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz suffered a foot injury during practice, and it was reported Carson possibly needed surgery.
It was unknown what route Carson would take, with a timeline showing he could be out for 12 weeks. Wentz ended up getting the surgery and will start his rehab next week. According to Chris Mortensen, it looks like Carson could be on track to play week one for the Colts.
If that’s the case, it will keep the Eagles’ hopes alive for acquiring another first-round pick. For Philly to get a first-rounder, Carson needs to play 75% of snaps or 70% and a playoff appearance. If Wentz is unable to do so, the Eagles get a second-rounder instead.
Wentz was at the Colts’ practice yesterday without a boot and no sign of a limp but was not practicing. It’s unlikely that Carson Wentz sees any preseason time, but even if he misses the season opener, there is a good chance they still could land the pick.
