The Philadelphia Eagles haven't revealed whether or not Carson Wentz will play in the team's preseason opener on Thursday.

Wentz doesn't seem to care either way.

"Preseason's helpful, but I don't think it's a necessity," he said. "No matter how much I'm out there I'll be confident in Week One. ...

"I think a little bit is helpful. But it's definitely never needed."

Wentz didn’t play at all during last year's preseason while rehabbing his knee and missed the end of the season with a back injury.
