Summary from the Final Week of Camp
Carson Wentz returned to practice last week, throwing 91 passes over three straight practices in 7-on-7 periods. With two weeks left until the regular-season opener, Wentz’s next hurdle is getting into 11-on-11 work. Considering he showed absolutely zero hesitation with his cutting and lateral movement and exhibited no worries about his injured foot, it appears a safe bet Wentz will suit up as the starter in Week 1. Jacob Eason was solid in Friday night’s preseason win over the Lions, going 10-of-14 for 74 yards. He probably did enough to lock up the No. 2 role on his merits but will wind up the backup in part because Sam Ehlinger is sidelined for 4-to-6 weeks with a sprained knee.
Jonathan Taylor didn’t play a single snap in any of the three preseason games, but head coach Frank Reich isn’t worried about Taylor’s readiness. “I feel good where we’re at,” Reich said. “I feel like we’ve gotten a lot of good physical work. (We’ve) been here (at training camp) for four weeks, worked really hard. Did get some quality time, got practice, got two days of practice against the Panthers as well. I feel like physically, we’re in good shape.” The Athletic’s Stephen Holder believes Taylor could have a heavier workload than we might expect. His preseason usage suggests Marlon Mack will back up Taylor on early downs, though TheFan’s Kevin Bowen believes Jordan Wilkins has looked better. If anything happened to Taylor, Mack and Wilkins would form a committee on base downs and at the goal-line. Nyheim Hines will maintain his usual role on obvious passing downs.
