Watch: Carson Wentz stuns in his first time on the field since ACL tear


Hopefully, the Super Bowl MVP enjoyed the ride, because he may not see the field this season.

Nick Foles authored one of the greatest Cinderella stories in sports history when he stepped in for an injured Carson Wentz and led the Eagles to their first championship in nearly 60 years.

The prevailing thought was that Foles might get to start the first couple of games of this season while Wentz rehabs from a torn left ACL.

But after Tuesday, it’s looking less and less likely that will actually happen.

For the first time since his injury, Wentz took the field with his teammates to participate in offseason training activities, and the results were stunning.

Yes, that’s Wentz, perhaps the MVP frontrunner before his injury, doing agility drills, and he sure doesn’t look like he’s favoring his right knee at all.

The third-year quarterback did wear a protective brace on the injured knee, but he seemed to be backpedaling and turning without any problems.

His planting looked solid as well.

Wentz went down in December, and so too did the Eagles’ title hopes, at least according to the experts.

Will Carson Wentz regain his MVP form in 2018?

To see him working like this a mere five-and-a-half months after the injury is incredible.

Now, this is just OTAs, not the regular season, and it usually takes nine months to return from an ACL tear. Still, Eagles fans must be flying even higher than before.

Unless, of course, your name is Nick Foles.

Like the saying goes, one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind (if mankind is full of Eagles fans).
