Eagles coach Doug Pederson has had it up to here with questions about rehabbing quarterback Carson Wentz.

Perhaps because he has seen how badly back-up Nick Foles has done filling in for Wentz, Pederson was uncharacteristically testy yesterday with the media.

Wentz, recovering from a torn left ACL, hasn’t been medically cleared for contact, and it’s unclear whether he’ll be healthy for the season opener on Sept. 6.

“I don’t know how many times I can answer this question,” Pederson said. “When they clear him, he’ll be cleared. I’m not going to put myself in a box, I’m not going to put my quarterback in a box. I’m not going to do that. And I’m not going to go on a limb, and I’m not going to say that. So either ask it a different way or otherwise you’re going to get the same answer.”

Wentz has participated in 11-on-11 work in practice while Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles got the start during Week 3 of the preseason.

The tense exchange continued as reporters tried to follow-up on a timeline for Wentz.

“I mean, he’s getting evaluated every day, if that’s what you want,” he said. “He’s part of the rehab process. He’s getting evaluated at practice, he’s getting evaluated by the medical team, he’s getting treatment just like Jason Peters is, just like Darren Sproles is.

You guys don’t ask me about those guys.”

The Eagles are 0-3 this preseason after losing to the Cleveland Browns, 5-0, on Thursday night.
