King: Eagles QB Carson Wentz returns for Week 3

NBC Sports' Peter King has a theory—Carson Wentz will not only miss Week 1 against the Atlanta Falcons, but also Week 2 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

King went on the "Dan Patrick Show" and predicted that Wentz would sit out until the Eagles' Week 3 home game against the Indianapolis Colts. Earlier on Monday, King wrote in his weekly column that he believed Wentz was "doubtful" for Week 1, too.
