Wentz (back) has no timetable for return and the team has said that they won't pressure him to return too quickly. He was not 100% healed as of April 15

Summary

It's hard to overstate the importance of this season on Carson Wentz' career trajectory. When healthy, he's proven capable of MVP-caliber play, although Nick Foles' Super Bowl MVP performance illustrates the quality of the roster and coaching staff in Philadelphia. Wentz has all the tools to win at the highest level but must stay healthy. He tore multiple knee ligaments in 2017 that gave way to Foles' historic run, and ended last season on the bench again; this time dealing with a back injury. Entering his fourth season and already 26 years old, and with Foles now in Jacksonville, it's imperative he produces this year to earn a long-term extension as the team's foundation. If his play regresses, or another injury concern emerges, General Manager Howie Roseman will have a tough decision next offseason. At 6-foot-5, 237 pounds, Wentz has the build to handle the rigors of the position, but he'll need to make smarter decisions as a scrambler going forward. With a deep roster and an intimate familiarity with Doug Pederson's offense, Wentz is capable of top-5 production as long as he stays upright. (May 1)
