Wentz opens with TD, gets win in Eagles return

Quarterback Carson Wentz, returning to the Philadelphia Eagles for the first time in 2018 following ACL/LCL surgery on his left knee, opened with a touchdown on the Eagles' first possession en route to a 20-16 win.

Carson Wentz is back up and running, and things should only smooth out from here. There were moments of rust in Wentz's 2018 debut but the Eagles pulled out a 20-16 win over the Colts. More importantly, he looked healthy and appeared to trust the knee. Expect him to play more and more like himself moving forward, beginning next week at the Titans.

A positive first half for Carson Wentz in his return from ACL/LCL surgery. He finished 14-of-20 for 165 yards and a TD, leading the Eagles to a 10-7 halftime lead over the Colts. He showed at end of half, with a spin out and scramble for a first down, that the knee is feeling healthy.

Carson Wentz's first game coming off a significant knee injury will be played on a wet field. Rain is in the forecast for the entire afternoon in Philadelphia. The team kept a tarp over the playing surface up until about three hours prior to kickoff until players began warming up.

Eric Karabell ESPN Senior Writer 

Lot of people asking whether we'd move quarterbacks with knee concerns like Carson Wentz and Aaron Rodgers down in the ranks due to rainy weather: I would not. Still top 10.

Is Baker Mayfield The Land's Future?

Bomani & Pablo debate if Baker Mayfield can turn the Browns into a good team, if Jets fans should be worried about Sam Darnold, preview Carson Wentz's first game back from injury and much more.

Tim McManus ESPN Staff Writer 

Running backs Jay Ajayi (foot) and Darren Sproles (hamstring) missing from practice again Friday. They haven't been out there all week. It appears it will be Corey Clement, Wendell Smallwood and Josh Adams carrying the load Sunday against the Colts.
