Sports The Philadelphia Eagles have been handed a massive boost ahead of Week 3, with reports suggesting Carson Wentz could be involved next weekend. According to league sources quoted by ESPN, the Eagles quarterback could finally make his long-awaited comeback on Sunday afternoon, when the defending Super Bowl champions host the Indianapolis Colts. Wentz has been out of action since he tore his left ACL in Week 14 last season during a 43-35 win against the Los Angeles Rams. While he has since returned to training, the Eagles have been wary of rushing him back and the 25-year-old is yet to be officially cleared for contact by the team’s medical staff. On Sunday evening, Eagles coach Doug Pederson gave nothing away about Wentz’s circumstances, suggesting he would “talk more about it” on Monday.

Markus Wheaton, who was with Philadelphia during the summer, is one obvious solution, while other available free agents include Dez … [Read more...] about Eagles WR Mike Wallace possibly done for season?
AP The Eagles were already struggling to adjust to their receiver shortage. Now, the problem is getting worse. According to Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network, the Eagles are preparing to be without wide receiver Mike Wallace for “a while.” Wallace was carted off the field yesterday with an ankle injury. They were already playing without Alshon Jeffery, who is coming back from a shoulder injury of his own, and they put Mack Hollins on injured reserve as well. Until Jeffery returns, that leaves Nelson Agholor, DeAndre Carter, Shelton Gibson, and Kamar Aiken to handle the load, unless they go out and make a move for a veteran receiver. Jeffery only began doing individual work in practice last week, so he may not be ready for this week’s game. … [Read more...] about Eagles prepared to be without Mike Wallace for a bit
