Wentz left to wonder what could have been at Super Bowl

Wentz left to wonder what could have been at Super Bowl

He also had to withstand injuries to Hall of Fame caliber left tackle Jason Peters, running back Darren Sproles, Pro Bowl caliber middle linebacker Jordan Hicks, and ultimately franchise quarterback Carson Wentz in Week 14.

The underdog and disrespect themes that propelled the Eagles through divisional round and conference championship upset wins were born from the season-ending injury Wentz suffered that diminished the team's championship value in the eyes of the national media, and even those close to home.

Per Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News, Wentz confirmed he had surgery to fix his ACL and LCL. "I'm still feeling confident with it". "The rehab's, it's the same type of progression and everything. It's gone great so far". Several dozen media members holding television cameras, iphones and voice recorders swarmed Wentz, the Eagles' 25-year-old quarterback who suffered a season-ending injury December 10 in Los Angeles.

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

"There is that part of me that, human element, that wants to be out there, without a doubt", Wentz said. "I think, again, I'm very confident in talking with trainers and everything that the rehab schedule doesn't change a whole lot". It's just something we have to be careful with. "I 100 percent believe I'll be back better than ever, stronger than ever, and with no looking back". He still expects to be ready for the 2018 regular-season opener in September. "You know I truly believe my goal is to be ready for week one". "The timetable stuff, I wish I knew just as much as you guys wish you knew".

"Guys just said, 'Hey, next man up.' That's the mentality we've had all year long", Wentz said, "And no one flinched or blinked".

Although he was injured on a touchdown run, Wentz said he will not change his playing style because of the injury. Wentz made it clear on Friday that he's going to continue to play quarterback the way he's always played it. "I had my sights set on this thing since I knew we weren't making the playoffs previous year", Wentz, who tore his ACL in December, told reporters.
