Even on another roster, Carson Wentz continues to cause issues for this Philadelphia Eagles team. Not only is he still counting against their salary cap number, but he’s now put that first-round draft choice that we were all banking on in jeopardy (we think).

Yep, by now, you’ve probably heard the news, but Carson Wentz is injured again. At the time of this story being written and published, there have been no updates about his long-term status, but thanks to a report by NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo, we’ve learned that Philly’s former QB1 is dealing with a foot injury.

He’s sitting out of the Indianapolis Colts’ Friday practice session. Second-year signal-caller Jacob Eason is taking the snaps as the team’s starter. Sam Ellinger is the backup. Here’s the skinny from both Garafolo and ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

As Philadelphia Eagles fans, you know why this Carson Wentz injury is important.

This one doesn’t need a ton of explanation. There isn’t a Philadelphia Eagles fan in the Delaware Valley or anywhere else on Planet Earth that doesn’t know about the importance of Carson Wentz staying healthy and the conditional second-round draft choice that becomes a first-round draft choice in 2022 if he’s on the field.

Then again, it wouldn’t be Carson Wentz if he didn’t find a way to irritate or stress the Eagles fan base in some capacity. Trust and believe that Birds fans will be watching this one closely. Let’s just make long stories even shorter. Injuries continue to plague the Birds. It doesn’t matter if they’re former Birds or the Eagles who are still on this team’s roster.

Brandon Brooks had his issues just  40 minutes or so into the Philadelphia Eagles’ second practice session on Thursday. And now, as we move through July’s final Friday, here’s a sentiment that Eagles fans can all share, one that we didn’t think we’d be saying this early in the offseason. gosh, we hope that Carson Wentz is okay.

Come on Wentz! For once, can you just do this team a solid? We’d really appreciate it if you could get your rear-end back on the practice field. No, seriously. We’d really appreciate it if you could do so.
