An Orthopedic Surgeon Believes Carson Wentz Will Need Wear Knee Brace for Rest of Career

The road to recovery for Carson Wentz is in full-swing as the star quarterback looks to return in time for Week 1 of the 2018 NFL season to help the Philadelphia Eagles defend their Super Bowl crown.

However, Dr. John Kelly, an orthopedic surgeon at Penn Orthopedic isn’t so optimistic.

Dr. Kelly, who admittedly has no inside knowledge of the situation, believes Wentz’s recovery would take anywhere from 9 to 11 months:

“This is an ACL plus 2,” Dr. Kelly told the 94WIP Morning Show on Tuesday. “This is an RG3 equivalent folks. This is worrisome. Now, his good news, he had a very good surgeon — Dr. James Bradley. He’s going to have good therapy virtue of NovaCare. He’s a man of faith, which is important to me too. This guy is an excellent patient. But I think his timeline is very, very optimistic.

In addition to the extended timetable for recovery, Dr. Kelly also believes Wentz will have to wear a knee brace for the remainder of his career:

“This kid, God bless him, is probably going to be brace dependent – like Brady, like RG3 was – the rest of his career,” said Dr. Kelly. “This may be a blessing in disguise, maybe become more of a drop back quarterback that we all want him to be.”

The Eagles are coming off a Super Bowl victory where they were led by backup quarterback Nick Foles.

If Wentz is indeed not ready for Week 1, maybe the Eagles hold off on trading the Super Bowl 52 MVP?
