Carson Wentz underwent successful surgery to repair torn ACL

The first step.

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz Underwent Successful Surgery to repair his torn ACL on Wednesday, according to a report from NFL insider Chris Mortensen.

Mort notes that the surgery was performed by Dr. James Bradley, who is an orthopedic knee specialist based in Pittsburgh.

The exact timeline for Wentz’s full return to the field is unclear. Earlier this week, Dr. James Andrews cautioned that the safe recovery time for ACL injuries is nine to 12 months. If that’s the case, Wentz’s recovery could last into the 2018 season.

On the other hand, PhillyVoice reached out to Mike Collins, P.T., who seemed more optimistic about Wentz’s recovery timeline.

"I would tell you that six-to-nine months is not out of the question, so that would put him right in that wheelhouse for training camp.”

We’ll see.

In the meantime, Nick Foles is the Eagles’ starting quarterback for the rest of this season.

UPDATE: Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie weighs in, via Ian Rapoport.
