Carson Wentz talks about his injury

29 January 2018

"The timetable stuff, I wish I knew just as much as you guys wish you knew", he said Friday.

Wentz underwent surgery to fix his torn ACL several days after suffering the injury, and the initial timetable for his recovery was set at nine to 12 months. The rehab - it's the same type of progression and everything. Like I told him, 'Hey, you've got next year.' But right now, he's been a great teammate, talking to us, communicating.

Wentz, the Eagles' franchise quarterback, spoke to the media for the first time since he sustained the injury in the second half of Philadelphia's Week 13 victory over the Los Angeles Rams.

Despite the fact that his injury was worse than anyone originally thought, Wentz doesn't believe that will affect his recovery timeline.

"I 100% believe I'll be back better than ever, stronger than ever, and with no looking back", said Wentz, acknowledging that players tend to "protect" themselves a little more when returning from injury. I'm feeling confident with it and I said it in the video I posted right after the injury. "I think we have a culture and just a brotherhood that I think we're wired to be successful".

Police arrested 50 people in connection with the violence outside malls in Ahmedabad last night. Karni Sena supporters blocked the Delhi-Mumbai highway near Jaipur and some other places.

"It's tough", Wentz said of not being able to play now.

Despite when he gets back, he's made one thing clear, he won't change his playing style.

"I am who I am. As far as being aggressive and the player I am, that won't change".

At the same time, Wentz's injury history might concern a franchise that must begin pondering whether the North Dakota State product is worth one of the most expensive contracts in National Football League history.
