“He’s making progress each day, and we just continue that process, and he continues to throw and get stronger,” Eagles coach Doug Pederson said at the start of the team’s rookie minicamp yesterday about rehabbing QB Carson Wentz. “It’s a fine line, too, this time of year, of maybe trying to do too much, too soon. But our guys are on top of it, he’s on top of it, he’s managing it extremely well and I’m encouraged with where he’s at.”

As the Eagles conduct rookie mini-camp, there is a lot of enthusiasm for the players selected in last month’s NFL draft.

But the elephant in the NovaCare room is the status of quarterback Carson Wentz, who suffered an ACL and LCL tear of his left knee against the Rams at the L. A. Coliseum.

Wentz has been throwing to teammates on the practice field, though Pederson said the QB has not been medically cleared yet.

“My goal is to not miss a game,” Wentz said in a recent interview with ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio. “I feel I missed plenty last year. I want to be out there with the guys. It’s a fluid process. We’ll see what happens, but I’m confident I’ll be back Week 1 and ready to play against Atlanta.”

“I’m not going to rush him out there. I’m not going to expose him,” Pederson said. “He’ll be ready when he’s ready, and when we feel he’s ready. Right now, we’re encouraged with the progress he’s making.”
