Eagles plan to 'test' QB Carson Wentz

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.
