Carson Wentz Reportedly Expected to Be Ready for Week 1 After Knee Injury

When the Philadelphia Eagles open the 2018 NFL season against the Atlanta Falcons on Sept. 6, they may be doing so with their star QB under center.

ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, cheap nfl jersey via colleague Adam Schefter, said on Tuesday that he is “starting to believe that Carson Wentz is going to be ready for the opener” based on what he is hearing.

Wentz suffered a season-ending injury in Week 14 last season when he tore his ACL against the Los Angeles Rams. He injured it on a touchdown run that was ultimately called back due to penalty, although he stayed in the game for a couple more plays to finish the drive with a touchdown pass.

At that moment, Philadelphia’s dream season appeared to be all but over. After all, the second-year quarterback was having an MVP-caliber season.

Wentz threw for 3,296 yards with 33 touchdowns and just seven interceptions in 13 games. The former No. 2 overall pick had led his Eagles to an 11-2 record, the best mark in the NFC and enough to clinch the division in the game he went down.cheap nfl authentic jerseys

As easy as it would have been for the team to dwell on the injury and give up on the season, Philadelphia instead embraced the “underdog” role and went on an unbelievable run to win its first-ever Super Bowl championship.

Nick Foles wound up leading the Eagles to an upset victory over Tom Brady and the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII, 41-33. The backup’s 373 yards and three touchdowns earned him Super Bowl MVP honors.cheap authentic nfl jerseys

Make no mistake about it, though. There was no quarterback controversy following the Super Bowl run—this was and is Wentz’s team.

Philadelphia listened to offers on Foles with the intention of giving him a chance to start somewhere else if they received an offer they couldn’t refuse. However, no team blew the Eagles away with an offer, so they kept the veteran as an insurance policy for Wentz (while restructuring Foles’ contract to reward him).cheap nfl jerseys from china

Wentz has a long way to go before he is ready to step on the field against NFL defenses, but the 25-year-old has made great strides on the recovery trail. There are still just more than three months until the season kicks off, and if Wentz is for some reason unable to be cleared in time, the Eagles can take the field with a reliable fallback. nfl cheap jerseys

Chelsea Transfer News: Jean Michael Seri Rumoured to Be in ‘Advanced Talks’

Nice midfielder Jean Michael Seri is reportedly in “advanced talks” with Chelsea, and a transfer could go through despite the uncertainty surrounding the future of Blues manager Antonio Conte.

Get French Football and the Mirror each cited a report from French radio station RTL, which said the club will press ahead in their pursuit of Seri even though Conte looks likely to be replaced this summer:
According to the Mirror, negotiations for the authentic nfl jerseys cheap playmaker are in the “latter stages,” meaning the Blues could soon welcome their first new arrival of the summer transfer window.

Seri moved to France from Portuguese outfit Pacos de Ferreira in 2015 and has developed into a well-rounded midfield outlet who’s accustomed to making his presence felt, per OptaJoao:

His performances over the past two campaigns have led to a raft of interest from some of Europe’s big guns, including Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund, according to the Mirror.

Dortmund’s introduction to the transfer tug-of-war is noted as a particular curveball in Chelsea’s hopes to recruit the star. Seri is in the final year of his contract with Nice, and that is pressuring the club to sell this summer.nfl jerseys for cheap

Chelsea already have a large crop of French speakers in their squad and could add another with Ivory Coast international Seri, who scored twice and made five assists in 31 Ligue 1 appearances this past season.

N’Golo Kante already provides a steely defensive presence in midfield, but Goal profiled Seri as a player who could do more damage at Stamford Bridge with the ball at his feet:

Only Marco Verratti (92.7) averaged more passes per game than Seri (86.3)cheap nfl jerseys  in Ligue 1 last term, which is all the more incredible given the dynamo also completed 90.4 percent of his passes.

Tiemoue Bakayoko hasn’t had the impact many hoped he would since moving to Chelsea from Monaco last summer, begging the question as to whether Seri may be eyed as a quick upgrade on the French flop.

There’s also the fact that Cesc Fabregas is 31 and no longer the most mobile of players, while Ross Barkley and Danny Drinkwater, both signed by Conte, may not be favoured by whomever could replace Conte.nfl jersey cheap

Kante has been a Premier League revelation since moving to England from Caen in 2015, and Chelsea may be close to securing another Ligue 1 midfield gem in Seri as talks over a deal are said to continue.
