Philadelphia Eagles news: Carson Wentz may start camp on the PUP list
As expected, news surrounds Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz as training camp begins.
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, we have some Carson Wentz news. Before we get into that, let’s take a quick look back. On the 4th of July, Philadelphia Eagles fans not only celebrated with friends and family on our great nation’s birthday. They also pulled their sharpies out and circled one more date on July’s calendar.
The 25th day of 2018’s seventh month meant and still means one thing and one thing only to any fan of ‘The Birds’. The champs are back, and it’s, once again, time for football.
Philly’s franchise quarterback, Carson Wentz was captured entering the Novacare Complex at about 10 A.M. on Wednesday morning. Take a look:
That’s the good news. Here’s the bad news.
As exciting as that walk is, there’s a twist to this story. Those who were waiting to see Wentz toss the rock around again may have to wait. According to a report by NFL.com and NFL Network National Insider Ian Rapoport, rumor has it Wentz may start camp on the PUP (physically unable to perform) list.
Take a look:
Okay, so maybe this isn’t really bad news. This still shouldn’t come as a major surprise. The Eagles organization is apparently going to air on the side of caution when it comes to QB1, as they should. There shouldn’t be any rush in bringing back the franchise.

An injury like the one he experienced a season ago (two ruptured ligaments) normally requires 12 calendar months to heal if you aren’t playing football. Wentz is attempted to return to the field in nine. Sure, he’ll be wearing a brace. Sure, he’s ahead of schedule, but we’ve seen what happens when players rush back from injury.
Stay tuned. Every Eagles fan, writer and coach will be watching this one closely.
