Some of Carson Wentz’s teammates are publicly standing up for him following the scathing report about the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback.

All-Pro defensive tackle and team captain Fletcher Cox tweeted the following from his official Twitter account:

Now, Cox obviously doesn’t work on the same side of the ball as Wentz. That’s somewhat significant because the Wentz criticisms seemingly stemmed from people with connections to the offense. But on that note, Pro Bowl right guard Brandon Brooks also threw his support behind Cox’s message.

As of this publish time, no other Eagles players have commented on the PhillyVoice report. We’ll add more reactions as they come in below.

Eagles third string quarterback Nate Sudfeld shared some thoughts:

Eagles center Jason Kelce shared the following message with The Morning Call:

“Carson arrived here three seasons ago and has been nothing but an incredible teammate. From the moment he started taking reps as a rookie, you knew there was something different about him, and our entire offense got better largely because of the competitor and player he is. His work ethic and attention to detail every day made an impact on others, and he’s without a doubt a tremendous leader through his words and actions. I have not read Joe’s article and don’t want to get into a habit of addressing unnamed opinions, but I know this: Carson through the first three years has been nothing but a great teammate trying to get better each and every day, trying to make others better each and every day, trying to make this team better each and every day. And when the dust has settled, his legacy will be one of an incredible competitor and teammate who laid it on the line each and every day for the guy next to him, and a man who did everything he could to help this team succeed. I’ll go to war any day of the week and twice on Sunday with guys like Carson Wentz.”
