Take it from the man himself.
Carson Wentz (and his surgically repaired foot) were back on the practice field from Grand Park on Monday just three weeks after he went under the knife.
The doctor’s knife that is.
Soon, he will be under the microscope of fans and media alike when he returns to full practice.
Wentz took 7-on-7 drills with his Indianapolis Colts teammates on Monday and looked sharp. Did he or did he not look a touch slow? Who cares.
The original prognosis was 5-to-12 weeks, and there may be a shot he’s ready to go for the season opener inside Lucas Oil Stadium against the Seattle Seahawks.
Our real answer will come if he can get some 11 vs 11 snaps this week.
The Colts take on the Detroit Lions on the road Friday night. Will that game serve as the battle for who wins the back-up job between Jacob Eason and Sam Ehlinger?
As for Wentz, you be the judge.
“It’s going to be up to the doctors for sure,” Wentz said. “At the end of the day, as long as there’s nothing I can do to injure myself or make it worse, I know I’ve played through a lot worse but it’s going to come down to what the doctor’s say.”
That last part to his quote is key.
Wentz’s injury history looks like an autopsy report. Head, Arm, Ribs, Knee, Foot. All over.
Tuesday morning will be the final practice open to the public, while Wednesday is for season ticket holders only.
Will the Colts use Tuesday to really show what Wentz can do? Let’s find out.
