The Philadelphia Eagles wrapped up their spring practices on Thursday afternoon last week, and they'll have a long break until the team rejoins again at the end of July for training camp. The early focus of spring practices, from a media perspective, was on Carson Wentz, who is recovering from ACL and LCL tears in his left knee.
In the first full-team, media-attended practice of the spring on May 22, the overwhelming consensus of all media observers in attendance was that Wentz was able to do more than anticipated. Videos taken of Wentz dominated "Eagles social media" that day, and rightfully so, as it was the first time fans got to see Wentz doing football things on a football field ever since he sustained his injury in Los Angeles in December of last year.
Since May 22, Wentz has made even more noticeable improvements, as you'll see in the video below. Early in OTAs, Wentz did not fully extend his plant foot or really step into his throws, but you can see significant progress over the span of about three weeks. As you'll see as the video progresses, Wentz gains more and more comfort planting with his left leg and stepping into throws with confidence.
We'll update this again when the Eagles return to training camp in July.
