The Eagles’ first OTA is on May 21. Maybe then Doug Pederson will give a Carson Wentz update.
The team opened a three-day rookie minicamp on Friday and the Eagles’ head coach was asked about how his quarterback’s back was doing.
“We’ll address it when we get to OTAs,” said Pederson.
Wentz pictured above ringing the bell prior to a Sixers game this season) addressed it when he met with reporters last month just prior to the NFL Draft, and he said he hoped to be ready for OTAs.
“That’s the goal,” he said. “There’s no timetable, no rush, but I feel good with the progression I’m having. It’s still getting there. Some of this stuff just takes times, but that’s not really the main concern. It’s just kind of how I feel.”
Wentz said then that he is feeling well enough to be able to do some running and throwing, but is taking things week by week.
“I won’t delve into specifics,” he said. “I’ll just say I feel good with where we’re I’m going.”
Pederson also declined to delve into specifics on Friday.
“Not going to get too specific or detail a lot of the things,” said the coach, “but he’s been working, encouraged by his progress and where he’s at. Just looking forward to the next few weeks with him.”
Pederson did add that Wentz was on the field for phase two of the team’s workout program.
