Jason Peters planning for Carson Wentz’s return

More signs pointing to getting Wentz back for Week 3 against the Colts.

NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at Washington Redskins Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

We haven’t gotten any official word that Carson Wentz has been medically cleared for contact just yet, but it seems like Jason Peters is preparing for the quarterback’s return in Week 3 against the Colts.

Wentz has looked progressively better since the preseason, and despite not making his Week 1 goal of returning to the field, the team has rightfully been taking things slow to best prevent re-aggravating the injury.

Head coach Doug Pederson has, on occasion, been testy with reporters about whether Wentz was cleared and who would be starting at quarterback in their season opener, but all signs point to the young quarterback being back sooner rather than later.

Jason Peters suffered a quad injury on Sunday against the Bucs, but is giving it his all to get back on the field to protect his quarterback.

We haven’t heard anything official from Pederson, but it seems like the players are at least preparing for Wentz’s return. Not that Eagles fans aren’t thankful for what Nick Foles pulled off in the playoffs and Super Bowl, but I feel safe saying we’re all ready to get back on the Wentz Wagon.
