Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz said Wednesday that he has one more hurdle to clear in his return from a torn ACL.

According to Zach Berman of the Inquirer, Wentz said getting cleared for contact is his primary focus:

“It’s hard to say I need X to be ready. I think, at the end of the day, I just need to be cleared for contact. Like you see out here, I’m doing quite a bit. I think, come camp, I’ll keep progressing and doing more and more. To finally be cleared of that contact issue is really the last hurdle, and I feel I’ll be ready whenever that is.”

With Wentz out down the stretch last season, backup quarterback Nick Foles led the Eagles to the Super Bowl, where they pulled off an upset win over the New England Patriots.
