Not only did the Eagles win the Super Bowl last month, but their fans were also treated to an encouraging site on Monday morning: Carson Wentz throwing a football.
Wentz shared some video to his Instagram story in which you can see him throwing a football from multiple angles while wearing a brace on his knee.
Back in January before the Super Bowl, the Eagles quarterback revealed that the knee injury he suffered in December was worse than originally thought. He tore his left LCL in addition to his ACL but he said then that he hoped to be back for Week 1.
"My goal is to be ready for Week 1," Wentz said. "I'm going to push and do everything I can to be ready. And I'm very confident in that."
"I'm feeling confident with it and I said it in the video I posted right after the injury — I 100 percent believe I'll be back better than ever, stronger than ever, with no looking back."
No reason to believe any of that has changed over the last month and a half and it sure looks like he's progressing.
