Carson Wentz ditches cane, showing progress in ACL rehab

Philadelphia Eagles Carson Wentz holds the George Halas Trophy after the NFL football NFC championship game against the Minnesota Vikings Sunday Jan. 21 2018 in Philadelphia

He still expects to be ready for the 2018 regular-season opener in September.

In college, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz would often ditch his role as a pocket passer to morph into a bruising ball-carrier hellbent on steamrolling defenders standing in the way of North Dakota State's offense.

After an uneven rookie campaign, Wentz was in the midst of a sensational second season and looming as a candidate for NFL Most Valuable Player honors before injuring his knee in a Week 14 win at the Los Angeles Rams.

Drafted second overall by the Eagles in 2016, Wentz was putting up MVP numbers in his second season. "The timetable stuff, I wish I knew just as much as you guys wish you knew". I'm going to push and do everything I can to be ready. Wentz, 25, said Friday that when he returns to the field in several months, he won't alter his playing style. Foles has played well in his stead, including during last week's NFC Championship Game, when he threw for 352 yards and three touchdowns while completing almost 80 percent of his passing attempts.

"I am who I am". "I think, again, I'm very confident in talking with trainers and everything that the rehab schedule doesn't change a whole lot".

"My goal is to be out there Week 1", Wentz said. "Obviously you guys want to talk about, 'Are you learning to protect yourself?' We ... talked about that all season long, and that will continue to grow and develop, but as far as playing aggressive and being the player that I am, I won't change". "Then, I'm in it. I get involved in the game and it all goes away".
