Carson Wentz will be arguably the biggest storyline in the NFL in 2018. The Philadelphia Eagles quarterback is coming off a devastating injury. He hopes to take hold of the starting quarterback position for the reigning Super Bowl champions.

Wentz is still making his way back from his injury. It's unclear when exactly he'll be ready to go during the 2018 season.

NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport had a major update on the status of Wentz this evening, though.

Wentz will not be going on the PUP (physically unable to perform) list heading into training camp. Wentz will be limited, but he'll be able to take part in some things.

"Great news for Eagles QB Carson Wentz, who won’t go on PUP. He’ll be limited but at least practicing," Rapoport reports.

Rapoport added that the Eagles had been considering putting Wentz on the PUP list. "When the Eagles met prior to QB Carson Wentz’s physical, they mulled a PUP designation considering he won’t be full speed and won’t do team drills. In the end, they chose option B, which is to keep him on the field. This means he’ll be on the 53-man roster when the season begins," he reports.

Eagles fans can't wait to see Wentz back on the field. Hopefully the NFL world gets to witness that soon.
