Carson Wentz will start in Week 3 vs. the Colts

Carson Wentz will start in Week 3 vs. the Colts

That said, Wentz found ways to get the change-of-pace back involved in the offense last season, so if you have Clement on your roster, keep him as a high-upside stash.

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz has been cleared to return and is slated to start against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday.

"We can't expect him to be Superman, either", Ertz said.

The rushing yards haven't been there for Ajayi so far - 85 total yards on 22 carries - but Wentz's return should open up some running lanes.

"I'm not going to coach scared", Pederson continued.

It will be Wentz's first game back since tearing his ACL last December 10 against the Los Angeles Rams.

West Ham's second was all down to Yarmolenko, though, as he capitalised on a poor clearance from Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford before curling the ball into the bottom corner.

Wentz tore his ACL when he was hit diving into the end zone at the end of a run. At the time of his injury, Wentz was leading the league with 33 touchdown passes and had just seven interceptions.

Since the injury, Nick Foles has taken over for Wentz as the Eagles' starting quarterback and led Philadelphia to a Super Bowl victory last February.

Wentz's original goal was to be ready for the season opener September 6th against Atlanta, but had not been cleared for contact. The Eagles have already been without their top receiver Alshon Jeffrey through the first two games. In the 13 games where he played a year ago, the Eagles went 11-2.

Wentz medically is fine to play. Pederson added that there will be no restrictions for Wentz but they may use some time to adjust to the speed of the game. "He's going to be prepared mentally, now it's just about the physical part taking over".

Surely, the Eagles will be creative and find a way to maximize Wentz's effectiveness.

Sunday's game will also be a reunion of sorts between the Eagles and Colts head coach Frank Reich, who was the team's offensive coordinator in 2016 and 2017.
