Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz will be managing his "pitch count" during training camp to ensure his arm is fresh for the regular season, he told reporters Tuesday after the team's second day of training camp.
"To some extent, yeah," said Wentz, sporting a black protective sleeve on his throwing arm. "I'm not too worried about it; I've been through a number of camps before. Obviously, this is a little different. But to some extent, it's kind of built into the practice plan in general."
Wentz is coming off a rookie season in which he set a franchise record with 607 passing attempts after going through the rigorous predraft process following his senior year at North Dakota State. His arm didn't get much of a break. There was a report that Wentz dealt with elbow soreness during the season. The team and Wentz denied the report, though Wentz did allow that there was some "general soreness," the story said.
