Carson Wentz admitted he's not fully recovered from his stress fracture in his back.

"It's still getting there. It's still getting there," Wentz said Monday at the start of the team's offseason training program, when asked if the bone is fully healed. "Some of this stuff just takes time, but that's not really the main concern. It's just kind of how I feel, and I feel pretty good with where I'm at."

The Philadelphia Eagles let Nick Foles leave in free agency this offseason.

Wentz said he has been cleared for some football activity and hasn't moved off his goal of taking part in OTAs when they begin in May.

"That's the goal, but there really is no timetable, no rush. But I feel good with the progression I've been on," he said. "Right now we're kind of taking it week by week. I'm throwing some, I'm running some and just kind of taking it week by week, and I feel good."
