May not play in preseason

Wednesday, August 14, 8:40 AM

Wentz doesn't believe he needs to play in the preseason, noting that the Eagles' high-intensity practices should be enough to prepare him for Week 1. Jimmy Kempski of PhillyVoice.com reports. "I'm not real concerned about what preseason brings," Wentz said. "I think it's good, but at the same time I don't think it's necessary, so I really trust that Coach [Doug Pederson] will make those decisions."
