PHILADELPHIA — There are many tough parts of coming back from an injured ACL for any player, but for a quarterback, one of them is the injury impacting how they throw the ball and the mechanics in their delivery.

For Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz, who had some questions about his mechanics coming out of North Dakota State two seasons ago, making sure he doesn’t revert back to old habits is crucial in him returning to the player he was prior to tearing his ACL last December.

“I feel great with my mechanics. I feel like I have been able to retain those pretty well and even since I got hurt I have been able to do some seated throwing the whole time,” Wentz said Wednesday after practice. “So thats one thing I have emphasized on a lot to make sure (my mechanics) don’t go away.”

Wentz isn’t lying — so far, his ability to keep his mechanics in line while also rehabbing his injured ACL is impressive.

When reporters first got a look at Wentz back in May, he wasn’t really putting all of his weight on his injured left leg as he threw the ball.

A month later, however, Wentz has has no issue firmly planting his injured left leg in the ground. That is important, because the leg that quarterbacks plant in the ground prior to throwing is how they get velocity on the ball.
