Carson Wentz makes an honorable pledge, and we all got some unexpected injury news on Timmy Jernigan. It’s all here in this edition of Philadelphia Eagles roundup.

Our obsession with the Philadelphia Eagles continues, as does our obsession with their franchise signal caller. You know, that Carson Wentz guy. No one would ever accuse QB1 of losing sight of who he is because of some newfound success. Wentz is one of those guys who’s easy to like. Most of his teammates are, so in light of that fact, let’s catch up with some Wentz news and a quick injury update on Timmy Jernigan. We know what you’re thinking.

When was Tim Jernigan injured? Don’t feel bad some of the most die-hard Eagles fans might have had the same question.

Tim goes under the knife.

A slight stir was caused by Eagles sideline reporter and 94 WIP-FM mainstay Howard Eskin when he dropped this update on his official Twitter account:

We’re left to guess when Jernigan’s injury originated, but one thing’s undoubtedly certain. There isn’t an Eagles fan who isn’t hoping ’93’ returns to action sooner than later.

Wentz opens his wallet yet again.

Let’s move away from Jernigan and catch up with a guy who’s pretty popular these days. For the second time in two years, Carson Wentz decided to spend some of his time being a blessing to some people who need one, the people of Haiti.

Last off-season, he took his former Eagles teammate, Jordan Matthews with him. This year it was tight end Zach Ertz, wide receiver Rashard Davis and fellow Eagles signal caller Nate Sudfeld who went along for the ride.

Check them out:

Last offseason, the pledge was to build a $500,000 complex. This offseason, he took things a step further by stating he’d match every dollar up to 500k for the completion of the project.

Well done Mr. Wentz. Well done.
