Wentz injury worse than feared, but Eagles quarterback targets 2018 opener

Nick Foles graces cover of Sports Illustrated's Super Bowl issue Wentz injury worse than feared, but Eagles quarterback targets 2018 opener

This was the first time Wentz addressed the media since injuring his knee on a goal-line dive against the Rams in Week 14. He detailed the amount of damage which was done in the December 10th game against the Los Angeles Rams.

"After we went in there, it was actually the ACL and the LCL [that were torn]", Wentz said.

"The (rehab) progression is the same, " he said. "It's gone great so far". I had to fight those feelings of self-pity.

"I truly believe I'll be ready for Week 1", he said Friday, via Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer. Sure, this won't be almost as interesting as watching the Vikings play in the Super Bowl, and, yes, we are now going to have to put up with a week of being heckled by Eagles fans, many of whom have no idea what it means to use their inside voice. Wentz continues to progress through his rehab and should be back on the field well ahead of the 2018 season. "I would say, as humans, we all want to be the competitors we are".

"I'm so happy for him and this team", Wentz said as he stood in front of his locker stall at the NovaCare Complex, "but especially a guy like that going through everything he's went through".

ESPN secures rights to broadcast EA's Madden NFL 18
This year marks the first year of the Overwatch city league , which boasts team owners from the world of traditional sports. More details on both the Madden NFL Ultimate League and Madden NFL 18 Club Championship, hit up the official Madden site .

For now, Wentz is doing what he can to help get Nick Foles and the rest of the team ready for the Super Bowl showdown with the New England Patriots on February 4. The Eagles will hope Wentz is ready to resume his role as the franchise quarterback.

Before the Eagles suffered their most significant loss, Carson Wentz was the face of the number one team in the NFC. Like I told him, 'Hey, you've got next year.' But right now, he's been a great teammate, talking to us, communicating. In any case, Wentz said the realization he tore two of the four ligaments in his knee hasn't changed his outlook. There's no timetable. It's such a fluid process, we'll see what happens. Guys want to talk, 'Are you learning to protect yourself?'. We've debated and talked about that all season long. "This team, my teammates, friends and family, the fans, and then my faith in the Lord is really what has gotten me through".

"My goal is to be out there Week 1", said Wentz, per Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia.

In the meantime, he's been trying to stay involved in any way he can, from the film room to the practice field and even on the sidelines during the games. No matter how Foles plays in the Super Bowl, no one logically believes that Wentz will lose his job.
