Quarterback Carson Wentz is set to hit a major milestone in his rehab process on Wednesday according to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport. Wentz's progress in the coming months will determine when he'll make his next in-game appearance. During warmups for the Super Bowl, Wentz was playing catch with some Eagles employees.

Wentz put the Eagles into a position to end the regular season as the No. 1 seed in the NFC, churning out 10 wins in the first 12 outings before tearing the ACL and LCL in his left knee Week 14. According to Rapoport's sources, "Once it [rehab] crosses the 6 to 8-week threshold (which is where Wentz is now), it becomes like a normal ACL tear".

Drew Brees and Nick Foles both first came to stardom in the suburbs of Austin, Texas, where the two quarterbacks starred at Westlake High a decade apart.

Boston Celtics guard Kyrie Irving has had problems with his right knee for almost three years now. Whatever the decision was, he made a bad decision. "We expect him to be back".

Despite suffering this horrific injury, most figured Wentz would be back and ready to go in time for the 2018 season.

Wentz tore his ACL late in the third quarter on a first-and-goal scramble.

Wentz finished the season with 3,296 passing yards and 33 passing touchdowns on a 60.2 percent completion rate, while also running for 299 yards. And Foles is starting Sunday with the Super Bowl on the line.
