Subject : Mike Wallace injury update: There’s optimism Eagles receiver can return later this season
The Philadelphia Eagles officially placed Mike Wallace Womens Dallas Goedert Jersey , who suffered a fractured fibula in Week 2, on the injured reserve list earlier on Wednesday but his season might not be over just yet. NFL insider Ian Rapoport reports his understanding is “that there is optimism that Wallace can return late in the year. That indicates a clean break without a lot of collateral damage.”This report echoes what Doug Pederson had to say about Wallace during his Wednesday press conference.It also matches up with his potential recovery timeline, which could be around six-to-eight weeks. By being placed on injured reserve, we do know for sure that Wallace isn’t eligible to be activated until after Week 10. This means he’ll miss at least seven games; note that the Eagles have a bye in Week 9. We also now know that one of the following three players will not be coming back to the 53-man roster this season: Wallace, Mack Hollins Authentic Corey Clement Jersey , or Richard Rodgers. The NFL only allows two players to be returned from injured reserve per season. Hollins and Rodgers will be eligible to be activated after Week 8 since they were placed on IR leading up to Week 1. It’ll be interesting to see what the Eagles decide to do. It’s too early to say for sure what will happen because a lot of things can change from now until then. We also have to see how the players progress during their recoveries. For now, it’s nice to know Wallace isn’t guaranteed to miss the rest of the season.Carson Wentz reportedly on track to return for Eagles’ Week 3 game [UPDATE] There are more and more signs pointing to Carson Wentz returning for the Philadelphia Eagles’ Week 3 game against the Indianapolis Colts. On Sunday morning, NFL insider Ian Rapoport reported that Wentz “could be cleared for contact as early as this week.”
That’s been the final hurdle for Wentz returning to the field.This report matches up with what we’ve been hearing recently. But Rapoport also did offer caution that Wentz might not play just yet.We’ve heard these lines about the Eagles being extra cautious a billion times by now. I’m thinking the Eagles are continuously trying to put it out there because they want people to genuinely believe they’re being extra cautious with Wentz and not rushing him back. So far, there’s been no reason to suggest they’ve acted otherwise. But if Wentz IS cleared to play, he should play. By definition , it doesn’t seem like a “rush” at that point. Because if he’s not truly ready to play, then he shouldn’t be cleared in the first place. As Eagles offensive coordinator Mike Groh put it last month: “If he’s cleared, he’s cleared. Once you say you’re cleared, you’re cleared. You’re ready to go. It’s not like you’re cleared, but ...”And so it’s seeming like it’s more and more possible Wentz will be back on the field for the Eagles next Sunday. While Foles is certainly capable fill in Womens Jason Kelce Jersey , there’s no disputing that this is Wentz’s team when he’s ready to play. ...[FIRST UPDATE: 11:41 AM ET] - NFL insider Adam Schefter appeared on ESPN on Sunday morning and said Wentz is on track to return for Week 3. Here’s more:LET’S GO!...[SECOND UPDATE: 12:08 PM ET] - The Daily News is confirming Schefter’s report.
