Commander quarterback Carson Wentz was listed as a limited participant in training Monday and Tuesday due to a right shoulder injury, but he avoided an injury listing for Thursday night’s game against the Bears.
However, that doesn’t mean Wentz is completely healthy. NFL Media’s Tom Pelissero reports that he is dealing with a shoulder biceps tendon sprain that he sustained in Sunday’s loss to the Titans.
Wentz is feeling well enough to go Thursday night and the hope is that the extended time off before facing the Packers in week seven will help him get closer to 100 percent.
Wentz threw for 359 yards and two touchdowns against Tennessee, but he was unable to get the team into the end zone on three plays from the 2-yard line at the end of the fourth quarter and was intercepted during the final game of the game. That was followed by Commanders head coach Ron Rivera, who cited “quarterback” as the reason the Commanders lagged behind the rest of the NFC East and Rivera and then tried to backtrack on the comments while showing support for Wentz.
