Carson Wentz Speaks on Nick Foles; Is Confident & Ready for Week 1


Carson Wentz is a great teammate and one hell of a leader, but the Philadelphia Eagles star quarterback is no fool and has no interest in giving Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles any more shine than he already has.

Wentz, who tore his ACL and LCL during a December 10 win over the Los Angeles Rams, spoke confidently about his prognosis moving forward, and he’s betting on being under center for the opener against the Vikings.
“I’m very confident. It’s a fluid process so you never how it’s going to go. But where we’re at, just trying to do what the doctors say and take it step-by-step … I feel really good and really confident for Week 1."
For his part, Wentz said Monday that there is “no awkwardness” or tension between the two quarterbacks.
“I think Nick and I, just from the outside world you’d think there could be some potential ruffled feathers and different things going on. But the way Nick and I have handled just our relationship, the basis of our relationship is we’re friends first and foremost before we’re teammates. So that’s made things so much easier to just root each other on and just have complete confidence in each other. We both know kind of where we’re at and what going forward is going to look like. So I’m really confident that there’ll be no issues with that. I love Nick and we both understand kind of the nature of this business and the outset of this team and the future. So we’re excited. And I’m excited he’s still here.”
