  Report: Carson Wentz likely to be ready for Week 1 Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz missed the end of the 2017 season and all of the ensuing championship run with a torn ACL. Some non-White-House Eagles’ news from @mortreport, who normally sounds cautious on injury timelines. But now, based on what he’s hearing, @mortreport said on ESPN’s NFL Live that he is “starting to believe that Carson Wentz is going to be ready for the opener.

It’s widely believed that the Philadelphia 76ers will pursue LeBron James this summer, and Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz would be eager to be part of the recruiting pitch if asked.

Wentz said Wednesday that he would “absolutely” be willing to help recruit James to Philadelphia.

“Absolutely. Absolutely,” Wentz said when asked if he’d like to be part of the recruiting pitch. “I hope he’s coming. You know, [Zach] Ertz and I were there the other night, and unfortunately he lost and everything. I didn’t really care who won in that game. But just seeing him live, we decided to make it a recruiting trip.”

  Eagles HC Doug Pederson shares what makes Carson Wentz-Nick Foles relationship work <p>Having Nick Foles behind Carson Wentz was the perfect insurance plan for the Philadelphia Eagles last season. Foles stepped in and delivered a fantastic performance down the stretch in the postseason, cumulating with Super Bowl MVP honors.</p>What was once the ultimate plan could have turned into a disaster if it wasn't for the way Foles and Wentz have been able to press forward in their roles with the team. Their relationship has allowed them to coexist as Wentz works his way back to take over the seat that Foles is keeping warm for them.

The Philadelphia Eagles are set to play in the NFC Championship Game tomorrow without the starting quarterback who had a large role in helping the team get to this point. Is Carson Wentz getting an early jump on recruiting LeBron James to the 76ers?

No, Wentz and Ertz did not get the chance to make a preliminary pitch.

“We did not,” Wentz joked. “Hopefully he knows we were there.”

Basketball teams have used other athletes to try to recruit players. It hasn’t always worked, but it’s worth a try.

Arizona Cardinals: Offensive Line: Whether it's Sam Bradford or Josh Rosen under center, protecting them is more important than usual. The Cardinals offensive line truly struggled last year, giving up the third most sacks (52) and having the second fewest rushing yards per attempt with just 3.4. With Humphries and Iupati hoping to stay healthy all year, there is some hope for the line, but replacing Veldheer with a struggling Andre Smith could be a huge liability.
