Carson Wentz says his goal is to be ready to play when the NFC champion Philadelphia Eagles open next season. He detailed the amount of damage which was done in the December 10th game against the Los Angeles Rams.

Speaking in the Eagles locker room, Wentz revealed he not only tore his ACL but his LCL as well. The rehab, it's the same type of progression and everything. "Obviously, there's been some great adversity this year that he's gone through, the team's gone through". "But I feel very confident". "I think, again, I'm very confident in talking with trainers and everything that the rehab schedule doesn't change a whole lot". In the Eagles' two playoff games, he was down on the field and assisted. The Birds will face the AFC champion New England Patriots on February 4 in Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis.

Still, he remains optimistic for the 2018 season opener. "I am who I am. As far as being aggressive and the player I am, that won't change".

Then Eagles coach Doug Pederson took Vikings coach Mike Zimmer to school and Foles looked like the guy who threw 27 touchdowns and two interceptions for the Eagles in 2013 and Keenum looked like the Keenum of old and the immediate thought was that maybe the Super Bowl could be relocated for this season. Guys suffer injuries. Our team, everyone is an example of that. "We'll just see what happens". But after contemplating retirement, he took the Chiefs' No. 2 job, returned to Philly in 2017, and is now one victory from living out every quarterback's dream. Guys want to talk, 'Are you learning to protect yourself?'.

He attends practices and numerous team and positional meetings and watches film with Foles and the Eagles' other quarterback, Nate Sudfeld. But he returned for and won the NCAA Division I-AA championship game. "My teammates and my faith have gotten me through it and that's been great".

"I don't think so", Wentz said, via NBC Philadelphia.

Similarly, Foles had barely enough time to sync his helmet radio when he jumped off the bench to lead the team to a 43-35 comeback win over the Rams, clinching the NFC East-pennant and the organization's first playoff berth since the 2013 season.

In the meantime, he's been trying to stay involved in any way he can, from the film room to the practice field and even on the sidelines during the games.

Wentz said he believes this is just the beginning of a long run for the Eagles as Super Bowl contenders.
