Orthopedic Surgeon: Carson Wentz’s Injury Is ‘Worrisome’
http://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/2018/02/2...n-wentz-injury/

"This is an RG3 equivalent folks...I think his timeline is very, very optimistic...I’d be thinking nine, 10, or even 11 months...This kid, God bless him, is probably going to be brace dependent – like Brady, like RG3 was – the rest of his career."

Mentioning RG3 and CW in the same sentence is ugly. Of course they are very different QBs, especially physical size and attributes from the neck up.

Carson mentioned fairly recently that he hoped to be back in Week 1.

Nine months would be mid September.

I really wanted that 2018 2nd round pick and $5 mil in cap space from a N Foles trade. I was okay rolling the dice with Sudfeld for a game or two, but do you want to do that if CW won't be back until mid October?

I'm now more inclined to wait until after June 1 when the Eagles get $1.5 mil more cap relief from a N Foles trade. I'd also be more interested in a player in addition to a 2019 pick, maybe a backup LB.

They may need to sign a veteran backup QB costing even more cap $.

Could it be that we'll never see the 2017 Carson Wentz again?

No. Guy isn’t even a knee specialist.

Then I guess it's professional speculation.

Wentz is a much bigger worry than people think IMO. I don't think that we'll ever see the escape artist that he was this season ever again I'm afraid. Unless the Eagles are blown away with an offer I don't see Nick going someplace anytime soon. Even if they think that Sudfeld is ready they still have to have a backup.

I have no idea if he'll be OK ... ever, but I do believe if it's possible to come back and still be a dynamic player, he's the one to do it. Only time will tell us.

He might be brace "dependent" lol. It sounds like some disorder. I guess that bum knee doesn't cut it anymore.

Any other wild-ass speculation we can read to corroborate? Does Lombardi have an opinion on this yet?

Just like when Peters tore his Achilles twice, after the re-injury at home, many said he would never be the same. They were right, he came back even better!

Yeah, I remember that.

I thought he was done.

Who tears an Achilles twice?

I had seen this yesterday but wasn't able to confirm it anywhere. Nothing on ESPN.com or anything. So I was thinking it was, shall we say, fake news. Apparently, it (sort of) is.

I'm relieved.

The truth is that nobody knows, not even the operating doctor. You only have to look to Andy Luck to see that. On the other end you have Adrian Peterson. Everybody heals differently and "torn" ligaments covers a lot of ground. We just have to wait this one out fellas.

I thought we heard 9-11 months from the get go, and that was before the other damage was mentioned.

That puts it first week of Sept to first week in November.

Even if you take a month off of that, first week in August to first week in October. Even if he gets on the field first week in August, you won't feel comfortable in what he can do for a few weeks.

Moral of the story: Foles ain't going anywhere, until at least mid August.

I wouldn't bet on that. You may be right, but this is Howie with depleted draft picks and no cap space. That's like mixing bleach and vinegar. ohmy.gif
