The Philadelphia Inquirer expects second-round TE Dallas Goedert to be an immediate red-zone threat.

With Trey Burton gone, Goedert is stepping into to the No. 2 tight end role. He reportedly "didn't look like a rookie" in spring workouts and should open the year behind Zach Ertz. There's talk Goedert could get some slot snaps in three-wide sets. Goedert didn't do much blocking in college, so it's possible he'll lose work to Richard Rodgers on early downs.

Eagles CB Sidney Jones ("soreness") suffered a setback and will be sidelined for minicamp.

The Eagles haven't clarified the area of Jones' "soreness," only saying it's in Jones' "lower body." Jones missed his entire rookie season with a torn Achilles'. Early-round draft picks who miss their rookie years have struggled to find long-term success. Jones was said to be standing out at slot corner before the hiccup. The Eagles haven't said whether they anticipate Jones being all systems go for training camp.

Eagles placed LB Paul Worrilow (knee) on injured reserve.

Worrilow went down with a torn ACL early in OTAs. He'll miss all of 2018 on IR. 28-year-old Worrilow has depth and special teams value, but may struggle for interest next offseason.

Eagles assistant head coach/RBs coach Duce Staley suggested Jay Ajayi will be the workhorse this season.

"I'm pretty sure that Jay is excited about being able to go out there and dominate and being able to be that guy," Staley said. "Just him being focused, coming in, knowing he's the guy, knowing he's the guy that's going to step up there and just put everything on his back and ride with him." The Eagles have utilized a committee backfield thus far under Doug Pederson, but Ajayi did average 14 carries a game over his final six including the playoffs last season. With LeGarrette Blount gone, it is not out of the question Ajayi sees 250 carries this year.

Eagles DE Michael Bennett reported for the start of minicamp.

The veteran skipped the majority of the offseason program, but he will attend the mandatory session this week. More important than his participation in offseason practices is his pending legal situation. Bennett was indicted on a felony charge after an incident at Super Bowl 51 in which he allegedly injured a 66-year-old paraplegic woman. Bennett's lawyer said the case against his client is "ludicrous."

According to Philly Voice's Jimmy Kempski, Mike Wallace has "looked the part" at OTAs.

Wallace turns 32 this summer and signed a one-year, $1.915 million deal with the Eagles in March despite a relatively productive two years in Baltimore despite playing with Joe Flacco and Ryan Mallett. Wallace should be locked into No. 3 receiver duties ahead of Mack Hollins and Shelton Gibson.

Eagles OL Isaac Seumalo has not gotten any snaps during team drills at OTAs.

According to the Philly Voice's Jimmy Kempski, Seumalo "does not appear to be injured in any way," so it is not clear why he is being held out. Kempski speculates the Eagles could be ensuring he stays healthy before attempting to trade him this summer. A versatile backup, Seumalo should draw some interest on the trade market.

Zach Ertz said Carson Wentz (ACL) has the "same zip, if not more" on his throws.

Perhaps this is just the usual "best shape of my life" stuff we hear every offseason, but it is another piece of positive news for the rehabbing quarterback. Considerably ahead of schedule, Wentz took part in 7-on-7 drills during OTAs. Once a question mark for Week 1, Wentz now looks like a lock to be ready when the regular season opens.
Jun 7 - 9:12 AM

Coach Doug Pederson said Carson Wentz (knee) has been cleared for 7-on-7 work at OTAs.

Wentz continues to make quick progress in his rehab from ACL surgery. He'd already been throwing in individual drills and walking/running without a hitch, so this is just the next step in the process. It would be a major surprise if Wentz wasn't ready for Week 1, as ESPN's Chris Mortensen said Tuesday.
Jun 6 - 11:00 AM

ESPN's Chris Mortensen is "starting to believe" Carson Wentz (knee) will be ready for Week 1.

The Eagles have never announced an official timeline for their star quarterback, but Week 1 has been known to be the goal. Wentz was spotted "jogging without a hitch" in OTAs and has been progressing as scheduled in his rehab. Although Wentz went down late in the 2017 season and the Eagles opted to hold onto backup Nick Foles, we would expect Wentz to be out there against the Falcons on Sept. 6.

Reuben Frank of NBC Sports Philadelphia expects Sidney Jones to serve as the Eagles' primary slot cornerback in 2018.

Ronald Darby and Jalen Mills are projected to start on the outside with Rasul Douglas, De’Vante Bausby and Avonte Maddox filling in as backups. An Achilles injury limited Jones to 29 snaps as a rookie but the 22-year-old has been a standout at OTAs this spring. He'll be tasked with replacing Patrick Robinson, who defected to New Orleans during free agency.
Jun 3 - 11:00 AM

MMQB's Albert Breer reports Eagles sophomore CB Sidney Jones "has turned heads" during OTAs.

Jones slipped to the second round of last year's draft because of a torn Achilles which cost him most of his rookie season, but Breer writes he is flashing "top-20" ability during OTAs. If Jones and 2017 third-round pick Rasul Douglas prove up to the task, the Eagles could look to trade walk-year CB Ronald Darby this summer.

Jay Ajayi said he considers himself a "workhorse running back."

Ajayi received just 70 carries in seven games after joining the Eagles midway through the season, but he took on a bigger role late in the year and had 42 carries in the playoffs. With LeGarrette Blount gone, Ajayi expects that playoff usage will continue. "Obviously, things have gotten a little shaken up in our room," Ajayi said. "I’m excited to get into that lead role." Darren Sproles and Corey Clement will get change-of-pace work, but Ajayi should be the guy on early downs this season.
May 31 - 9:45 AM

Philly Voice's Jimmy Kempski mentioned contract-year CB Ronald Darby as a potential trade candidate for the Eagles.

The Eagles acquired Darby as part of the Jordan Matthews trade with the Bills last summer, shipping Matthews and a third-rounder to Buffalo for the corner. Darby ended up missing half the season with an ankle injury but returned in Week 11 and was one of the team's best corners in its title run. Darby isn't signed past 2018, and the Eagles have Jalen Mills, Sidney Jones, Rasul Douglas, and Avonte Maddox as young/middle-round picks at the position.
May 30 - 10:06 AM

Carson Wentz (knee) is "(jogging) without a hitch" in Eagles OTAs.

Per reporter Jeff McLane, were it not for Wentz's brace, it would be "difficult to discern that he was five months removed from reconstructive knee surgery." Wentz's OTAs involvement hints that he will be close to full-go when training camp kicks off in late July, but rehabs and timelines are always subject to change.
