The Facts: Wentz appears on track to full recovery from a back injury that shelved him to close out the 2018 regular season. Wentz worked out Tuesday on the first day of organized team activities without limitations. And as further proof on his health, Wentz elected to shed a protective knee brace that he wore last season after suffering a torn ACL in 2017. "It felt great to get that thing off," Wentz told reporters. Wentz adds he plans to not wear the knee brace during the regular season, and that he has full confidence in his body. "I feel great," he said. "There's no limitations out there, and so I'm out there doing team drills, doing all that stuff, which seems like it was a while for me. But I feel really good going forward and obviously I'm cleared and ready to roll."
Diehards Line:While the Eagles are sure to be smart about Wentz's health and workload before the regular season, having Wentz on the field now is obviously a positive sign. Barring a setback, a fully healthy Wentz should also help the Eagles get off to a faster start in 2019 with a view to make the playoffs for a third consecutive season.
