Carson Wentz takes the field as Eagles open OTAs

"I think there are some other things on the list of places that are visited on the trip to D.C.", Jenkins said last week.

Sporting his red No. 11 practice jersey and trademark black sleeve on his right arm, Carson Wentz looks like he is set to regain command of the offense as the Eagles' first Organized Team Activity kicked off Tuesday at the NovaCare Complex. I don't view it as a political thing whatsoever.

"It's a great honor", Pederson said. I'm very encouraged with where he's at. "We're still working through logistics right now, so we don't have all the details of the day, but excited to be going".

"No, I'm not going to the White House. But I'm excited to be going".

"For me, personally, if the team decides as a whole, most guys want to go or be a part of it, I'll be attending with them", Wentz said. Safety Malcolm Jenkins, who has been critical of Trump and an outspoken supporter of player protests to raise awareness about social-justice issues, also has said he won't attend.

When looking at the MVP numbers he was putting together (33 touchdown passes with just seven interceptions) before suffering that torn ACL against the Los Angeles Rams, it was a shame to see Wentz's season come to an end the way it did.

There's no public timeline for Wentz to be fully cleared by doctors.

Wentz looked sharp throwing to receivers in the warmups and through individual drills, participating for about 30 minutes before removing the knee brace and watching the rest of the indoor practice.

Pederson said Darren Sproles and Michael Bennett would be the only guys not participating in the first phase of voluntary OTAs.

"They're two guys that I don't have a lot of concern as far their ability to help us win games", Pederson said. Bennett was arrested in March and charged with injuring a 66-year-old paraplegic woman who was working as a security officer in Houston during Super Bowl LI. He was reported to have said that many owners "have no interest in supporting President Trump" and added, "This is not where you brandish a group of people because they own assets in a sport we love, supporting what many of us perceive as, you know, one [expletive] disastrous presidency".
