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)

Eagles | Carson Wentz has no limitations (Tue May 21, 10:55 AM) - Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (knee) has no limitations in organized team activities, according to head coach Doug Pederson.

Our View: Great news for the Eagles here. The team is going to be cautious with Wentz but he's going to be involved in most of the work the team does in OTAs and minicamp. Now, we'll see if the Eagles can get something done on a contract extension for their franchise quarterback.

Eagles | No limits on Carson Wentz during OTAs (Mon May 20, 04:22 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (back) is reportedly progressing well from his back injury and will not be limited for on-field drills during organized team activities beginning Tuesday, May 21. While the team will be cautious with him, he is expected to be involved in the majority of all work, according to sources.

Our View: Good news for the Eagles here. Wentz is in line for a new contract, although the team does control his rights through the 2020 season due to the fifth-year option for the 2016 first-round pick. He needs to stay healthy and that's about it for Wentz. He's a proven player who looks like a fine starter when healthy, but injuries have shortened each of the last two seasons.

Eagles | Philly starts talks with Carson Wentz (Sat May 18, 07:50 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz has started contract extension talks with the Eagles, but the two sides are not close to an agreement at this point.

Our View: There's not a big hurry here. The Eagles have Wentz under contract through the 2020 season with the fifth-year option the 2016 first-round pick had picked up by the team. Wentz needs to stay healthy and that's about it. When healthy, the young quarterback has the upside to be one of the best in the game. If he plays well for a full season in 2019, Wentz's price is only going to go up.
