Carson Wentz will have his ACL surgery with "a couple of days," per a team source. Dr. Andrews said he' s encountered too many football players w/ torn ACLs who have unrealistic expectation, citing Adrian Peterson ' s remarkable recovery from ACL /MCL repair in Dec '12 to play by Sept '13.

The bad news for Carson Wentz with his torn ACL : Not many NFL quarterbacks Compared to today, ACL rehab and return back then was practically prehistoric and accompanied with far more pessimism. And it didn't have tales like Adrian Peterson ’ s 2012 return to offer even over-hyped optimism.

A day no Eagles fan wants to go back to, even in their mind, is December 10, 2017. On that day, Carson Wentz went down with an ACL injury.

Wentz threw another touchdown to break the Eagles single season touchdown record after tearing his ACL. News came out within 24 hours that he was out for the rest of the season.

With th

e benefit of hindsight, we know the season ended up fine. (Understatement of the century?) At the time though, the general attitude of most fans was nothing short of hopelessness.

The Eagles' fearless leader was gone in the middle of a legitimate MVP campaign. He tore his ACL so late in the season that the fear was he might not make it back in time for the first week of the 2018 season.

Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz has torn his anterior cruciate ligament and will miss the rest of the Eagles’ season. As fans grapple with news of the knee injury Wentz suffered during Sunday’ s win over the Rams, many are wondering: How bad is an ACL tear

From the very beginning, Wentz said he would be back by Week 1. However, that's exactly what everyone says when a player goes down.

What else are they going to say?

Reports have been positive all throughout his recovery process, with Ian Rapoport ladt month reporting that Wentz's mechanics haven't suffered at all.

Wentz is progressing along extremely quickly. Two weeks ago, he was only doing individual drills.

Earlier this week, the final week of OTAs, Wentz was cleared to participate in 7-on-7's, just six months after tearing both his ACL and LCL in his left knee.

Now, of course Wentz isn't taking hits yet, but his progress is "shockingly ahead of schedule" according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen. Mortensen is known for being extremely conservative in his injury reports, so for him to say with confidence that Wentz is ahead of schedule is a big deal.

He said, "from people inside [the Eagles organization] who were somewhat skeptical, I am hearing that he's not just ahead of schedule - he's WAY ahead of schedule."

Thirty years ago, an ACL tear was a likely career-ending injury. Nowadays, with advances in modern medicine, the expectation is for players to come back in a year. In 2012, running back Adrian Peterson became legendary for his quick ACL recovery. Peterson tore his ACL on Christmas Eve in 2011. After an almost unbelievable recovery, Peterson ended up leading the league in rushing in 2012, rushing for more than 2,000 yards and winning the league MVP award.

Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer had a career year in 2015 at the age of 34 years old after tearing his ACL in 2014 for the second time in his career.

Jason Kelce, the Eagles very own center, came back from an ACL tear and was named the best center in the league by Pro Football Focus the year after his injury.

Tom Brady came back from a torn ACL in 2008 and has been arguably the best quarterback in the league since his return.

All of these examples can give Eagles fans hope that the reports of Wentz coming back stronger and better than ever before probably aren't just false platitudes. The average NFL player is cleared to hit the field a year after an ACL tear.

Wentz left the game shortly after the play and did not return to the game. The Eagles confirmed that Carson Wentz tore the anterior cruciate ligament , or ACL , in his left knee during Sunday’ s game against the Rams.

If Carson Wentz starts Week 1 of the 2018 season, it will be almost nine months to the day. If Wentz does come back, and is in fact better than before, he will join Adrian Peterson as a legendary figure and a benchmark for other players trying to recovery from ACL injuries.
