Wentz hopes to be ready for Eagles' season opener

Nick Foles touchdown catch

While Wentz is rebuilding relationships with teammates through the rehab, it's safe to say he gained respect cheering them on last season. But Foles said he has a good enough relationship with coach Doug Pederson and General Manager Howie Roseman that he'd expect to know if something was going on.

The former North Dakota State star acknowledged that despite his close friendship with backup Nick Foles, watching Foles lead Wentz's team to the first Super Bowl title in franchise history was hard.

The Eagles quarterback, who suffered a season-ending knee injury in December, said in late January that his goal was to be ready for the opener.

He said: "You've gotta fight that". He said if it had to be someone other than himself accepting the Lombardi Trophy and the MVP award, he was glad it was Foles.


He will miss all of the offseason workouts and the preseason. He declined to go into detail about the progress he's made, but Wentz said he has started running. While Wentz is gunning for Week 1, the Eagles have the luxury of being patient with his recovery.

"It's human nature to want to be on that podium, to be that guy. I'll be ready to go whenever they need me", Foles continued. You grew up wanting to do that as a kid. Then, going back and watching again, there's things you just keep learning from.

Given the friendship between Wentz and Foles, there is little chance of any friction developing between them this season. "And I did. But to not be able to be up there, I wouldn't rather have anybody else be up there than Nick". That stance isn't going to change until or unless Wentz returns to full health in his recovery from surgery to fix his ACL as well as his LCL. "I think him and I, we've been so close ever since he first got here. To go through that experience past year was pretty cool".

"I know there was some stuff going around, a possible trade, and I would love the opportunity to be a starter again".
