Doug Pederson: Carson Wentz Will 'Jump Back Into Some Team Drills'

Quarterback Carson Wentz will "jump back into some team drills," according to head coach Doug Pederson, during Sunday's practice, which will be held outdoors despite rain all morning in South Philadelphia.

"It's big to begin to evaluate him and see where he's at," Pederson said. "His arm is live. He's moving around well. ... He's excited to get out there today."

Wentz, who has not participated in team drills since the start of Training Camp, will split first-team reps with Nick Foles, who will practice despite suffering the shoulder strain Thursday night in New England.

Pederson added that Wentz is "where we wanted him to be at this stage" but don't expect him to play in the preseason since he has not yet been cleared for full contact.

In other injury news, tight end Richard Rodgers is "week to week" after suffering what the team called a knee injury on Thursday night. Running back Donnel Pumphrey will not practice nor will he play this week in Cleveland with a hamstring injury. Cornerback Jalen Mills will return to practice on a limited basis and only do individual drills. Wide receiver Nelson Agholor and running back Corey Clement are "day to day." Expect them to do more next week, said Pederson.

Tackle Jason Peters and running back Darren Sproles are "doing great." Pederson doesn't need to see them in the preseason.

"Practices are as hard if not harder than games," the head coach said.
