A report from Ian Rapoport:
#Eagles QB Carson Wentz is progressing well from his back injury from 2018 and sources say he has no limitations for on-field drills during OTAs, beginning tomorrow. The team will be smart with him, of course, but he’s expected to be involved in the majority of all work.

Big, if true.
I’m willing to bet that Doug Pederson will be asked about this tomorrow when OTAs begin.
The last time he was asked about Wentz, we got this exchange, after the jump:
Dave Zangaro: When OTAs start in less than two weeks, will (Carson Wentz) be on the field?
Pederson: How does that pertain to rookie minicamp?
Zangaro: It’s all about Carson from (inaudible)
Pederson: No, it’s all about the rookies that are in this weekend.
Zangaro: So you won’t say if he’s going to be on the field?
Pederson: Not right now, not until we get to that point. He’s on the field right now in phase two.
Zangaro: But it’s a different type of practice, a different type of workout than OTAs.
Pederson: Yeah, we’ll address it when we get to OTAs.
It will be addressed tomorrow! And then the guy who posts in the comments section as “Carson Wentz’s gimpy leg and bad back” will likely respond to whatever we post about the topic.
