Carson Wentz Has Been Medically Cleared to Play, Will Start Week 3
Bismarck's favorite quarterback, Carson Wentz, has been medically cleared for contact and the Philadelphia Eagles have announced he'll start in Week 3 of the NFL season.
Wentz is coming back from a torn ACL and LCL injury that he suffered on December 10th of last year in a game against the Los Angeles Rams. Recovery time from the injury is typically nine-to-12 months. This past Thursday marks nine months from the day his knee was surgically repaired.
Nick Foles had been filling in at quarterback for the Eagles in Wentz's absence. Foles helped the Eagles to a Super Bowl Championship and was awarded Super Bowl MVP honors. However, his play in the preseason and the first two games of the regular season in 2018 have not been of the caliber we saw in last year's postseason.
Wentz was having an MVP-caliber season in 2017 and leading the league in touchdown passes with 33 in just 13 games before his season was cut short due to injury.
The Eagles host the Indianapolis Colts next Sunday, September 23rd and we'll see #11 back on the field.
