Eagles plan to 'test' QB Carson Wentz

ESPN - [Full Article]

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson is taking the long view when it comes to rookie quarterback Carson Wentz, but the plan is to give him a little work Saturday to see how he is progressing after suffering a hairline rib fracture in the preseason opener Aug. 11.

"We're going to test him a little bit today, just throwing a little bit. But that's one that I'm not going to rush back," Pederson said. "I know that injury can be a little discomforting but at the same time, want to see where he's at."

Fantasy Impact: 

Pederson indicated that he is still trying to get Wentz ready to play in the Sept. 1 preseason finale against the New York Jets. The head coach described Wentz as "day-to-day." This is possibly the last chance Wentz would have to play this year as the plan remains to start Sam Bradford with Chase Daniel the backup.
