Carson Wentz will finally get a healthy offseason in the books ahead of the 2019 NFL season.
As the Philadelphia Eagles wrapped up their season a bit early last week, the team will have more time to rest up and get healthy before the offseason activities begin. The next time the Nova Care Complex will be filled up with players will be some time in April when the voluntary spring workouts start for the 2019 season. Last year, Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz was still in the process of rehabbing his torn ACL/LCL. This season, he will be coming off of a stress fracture in his back.
Fortunately for Wentz and the Eagles, his fractured back shouldn’t take away any of his practice time in the offseason. For the first time since the 2017 offseason, Wentz will have the opportunity to be a part of all team activities throughout spring workouts, all the way up until the preseason. According to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, Wentz’s back injury should not hold him back at all. That’s excellent news for Wentz, considering that he missed the entire preseason in 2018, along with the first two weeks of the regular season.
Everything should get back to normal
"“Despite not playing in the final five games of the season, Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz is expected to be healthy enough to be a full participant in Philadelphia’s offseason program in April if the team wants him to, league sources told ESPN.”"
Now that the Eagles have officially named Carson Wentz, not Nick Foles, the starting quarterback in 2019, the team will work on doing everything that they can to surround the franchise quarterback with weapons that tailor to his playing style. Hopefully, with a full offseason in the works, Wentz will re-build up that chemistry that he evidently lost with his surrounding weapons this past season.
Having Wentz ready for the offseason programs is a great first step for the Eagles offense though. Although Wentz wasn’t one-hundred percent for a majority of the previous season, we should expect to see a much more improved quarterback as he will avoid spending most of his time rehabbing this year. April couldn’t come soon enough for the Eagles.
