Carson Wentz couldn't have known that when he tore his ACL diving into the end zone last December that his Philadelphia Eagles would go on and win the Super Bowl under the direction of another quarterback. And he couldn't have known, fairly or unfairly, that there will now be a faction of Eagles fans calling for Nick Foles the moment Wentz throws his first interception.
But judging by where Wentz is in his recovery, perhaps those fears should be alleviated. Wentz looks like he has full range of movement and strength in his legs again, due to a video of the former North Dakota State star launching a 70-yard touchdown pass to a football camper last week.
Check this one out! @cj_wentz hitting Wyatt Gunkel in stride for a 66 yard TD pass. (Traveled 70+ in the air into the endzone!) @Eagles @NDSUfootball "I'll hit you on the D" #hecalledit pic.twitter.com/jG5g9lDxHT

Wentz will need more time before he's back to looking like the MVP candidate he was before he went down last season, but he's getting closer to full health by the day.
