Carson Wentz injury update: Report says Eagles QB may not return until October

Carson Wentz injury update: Report says Eagles QB may not return until October

Carson Wentz was eyeing Week 1 for his return.

That didn't happen and now it appears uncertain he'll play at all this month.

Wentz could be out for "several weeks," according to a report Thursday night by NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That would push his return into October. 

The Eagles are obviously using extreme caution with their franchise quarterback and because of that, per the report, we could see Nick Foles as the starter into October. The Eagles play four games in September and host the Vikings on Oct. 7 in Week 5 in a rematch of the NFC Championship Game. 

"They're not going to put him out there until he's 100 percent healthy," Rapoport said.

Wentz is recovering from a torn ACL and LCL suffered last Dec. 10. Despite not reaching his goal of Week 1, he has taken the patient approach in stride. He has been in good spirits since learning he wouldn't be ready for the opener. 

"Carson is in a great spot,” Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said this week (see story). “He's in a great spot right now. He's supportive. He understands. He knows exactly where he's at. He works every single day to get back on the field. That's all I can ask for.”

Wentz was among the Eagles' six inactive players for Thursday night's season opener against the Falcons at Lincoln Financial Field, but got a good workout in pregame (see story). He looks good, but the team is still being cautious. 

For now, though, it's the Super Bowl MVP under center.

Jon Runyan's former estate, with hefty price tag and insane bar, is for sale

Jon Runyan's former estate, with hefty price tag and insane bar, is for sale

If you’re in the market for a home with the most insane bar you’ve ever seen and have a cool $5 million budget, former Eagle Jon Runyan’s house could be the perfect fit.

Located in Mount Laurel, New Jersey, Runyan’s old digs are for sale and, according to listings on Zillow, are nearly eight-times more expensive than any of the other 70 homes on the market in Mount Laurel. 

Despite being a massive 14,000 square-foot property, this house only has five bedrooms, but you’ll see where all that square-footage is being taken up. The area set aside for entertaining is just ridiculous.

Runyan, an Eagle from 2000 to 2008 and a congressman thereafter, was not the most recent tenant. He sold the house in 2015, but the home is back on the market for an elevated price of $5.6 million (see listing). The beautiful white interior and custom designs are ever-present throughout the home, which sits at the back of a long driveway and grand gated entrance. The house boasts a master kitchen, ample closet space and an awesome master bath with custom tub.

The backyard, though, is the most incredible part. Forget the pool with a diving board, artsy palm trees and pavilion, the bar is something out of an expensive wedding. It’s ridiculous.

Wooden beams stretch throughout this rustic barn-themed entertainment area, which boasts a giant circular bar with a fireplace and two bathrooms. It looks like the bar area could host a 100-person wedding instead of being in the backyard of someone’s single family home.

It also looks like there are seven garages, so, there’s one for you to drive a new car for every day of the week.

Here’s a look at some photos of the inside and outside of this insane estate.

If you’re wondering, Runyan moved into a $1.3 million Moorestown home in 2015, but sold the home in March for $1.2 million.

Eagles fans will love this new play addition to 'Madden'

Eagles fans will love this new play addition to 'Madden'

Philadelphia fans have been running the Philly Special at weddings and in their living rooms for the better part of the past year and a half.

Now, they can officially run it in the Madden video game when it's released this summer.

We learned of this news today on the "The Eagle Eye in the Sky Podcast" in which EA Sports' Anthony White shared the exciting news.

"It's under the pistol formation," White said. "One play is the 'Philly Special' and the other play is called 'Fake Philly Special.'"

He added it'll remain "Philly" regardless of what team you're playing with.

"A couple of other teams ran it last year," he said. "I know the Dolphins ran it. I think the Falcons ran it. Do we call it the 'Dolphins Special' or the 'Cleveland Special?' We're actually just going to call it 'Philly.'"

Sadly, Nick Foles is no longer on the Eagles' roster so when you run the play with the Birds you may have to pray that Carson Wentz's hands are just as good.
