December 2017. Led by second-year

 quarterback Carson Wentz Black Marcell Dareus Jerseys , the Eagles rocketed toward the No. 1 seed in the NFC, and Wentz had the inside track to the league MVP award.Then came a visit to the Rams, an ill-timed head-first dive to the end zone, an unexpected ACL tear in the process, and that was that for Wentz.But not for the Eagles, of course. Journeyman Nick Foles took the Eagles on the ultimate journey, holding (barely) the top seed in the conference Marcell Dareus Jerseys 2019 , beating (barely) the Falcons in the divisional round, beating (handily) the Vikings in the NFC Championship game, and winning (somehow) the Super Bowl over the Patriots. Wentz didn’t win the regular-season MVP award, and Foles ended up being named the Super Bowl MVP.Wentz’s recovery and rehab hovered over the 2018 offseason, keeping Wentz from starting the season, one that started sluggishly and stayed that way. Until, that is Black D.J. Hayden Jerseys , Wentz was lost again for the balance of the season in December, Foles returned to the field, securing a playoff berth, upsetting the Bears in Chicago, and nearly stunning the Saints in New Orleans for a second consecutive berth in the NFC Championship.Now, Foles is gone, and Wentz is supposedly healthy. But will he stay healthy? That’s the question that will determine whether the Eagles can deliver on a ceiling that has them winning another Super Bowl.Wentz has spectacular skills. However D.J. Hayden Jerseys 2019 , he has been too reckless with his body — dating back to the preseason of his rookie year, when he went head over heels and eventually suffered a hairline rib fracture in the opener against Tampa Bay. The challenge becomes finding a balance between playing with abandon and playing with an abundance of caution, allowing him to do special things but also enabling him to keep playing.If he can find that balance, he can stay healthy all year, and he can become the league’s MVP. If he can’t, he’s destined to be injured again, and the Eagles may end up regretting the decision to keep Wentz and to watch Foles walk away.Especially if Foles keeps working in Jacksonville the magic he managed the last two years in Philadelphia. JACKSONVILLE Black Donte Moncrief Jerseys , Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars placed veteran running back Alfred Blue on injured reserve more than two weeks after he hurt his left ankle in a preseason game.The team also released defensive tackle Eli Ankou, tight end Ben Koyack and long snapper Matt Overton on Sunday. The moves came after Jacksonville was awarded Baltimore running back Tyler Ervin, New Orleans running back Devine Ozigbo, Cleveland tight end Seth DeValve and Baltimore long snapper Matt Orzech off waivers.Jacksonville completely revamped its running back room around Leonard Fournette following last year’s 5-11 debacle, but many of the moves failed to pan out. The Jags cut third-down backs Thomas Rawls and Benny Cunningham, and now won’t have Blue, a backup Donte Moncrief Jerseys 2019 , for at least the first eight games of the regular season.Ervin, Ozigbo and rookie Ryquell Armstead — a fifth-round pick from Temple — have a combined five career carries.Blue, who injured his ankle in the team’s second preseason game, will be eligible to return to action Nov. 3 against Houston. The Jags waited to put him on IR so he would be eligible to return this season.
