Is NDSU's Carson Wentz now the starter in Philadelphia?

My, how things can change with a phone call.
Carson Wentz, the Eagles' rookie quarterback out of North Dakota State, is on the shelf with a rib injury. Until Sam Bradford was traded to the Vikings on Saturday morning many assumed Wentz would spend the first part of the season - if not the whole thing - learning from afar as Bradford and Chase Daniel took the saps.
Talk about a gamble. But then, at this point why not?
Wentz, the No. 2 overall pick in April's draft, completed 12 of 24 passes for 89 yards and an interception before suffering a hairline fracture in his ribs that's forced him to sit out the last three weeks.
