Eagles staying away from run plays for Carson Wentz for the moment

Philadelphia Eagles rookie quarterback Carson Wentz has shown the ability to run, but head coach Doug Pederson would like to save specific run plays for later in the season – Carson being a rookie and all.

“Without giving away the game plan? No, I’m not,” Pederson said, per the Philadelphia Inquirer. “Now, this week for us, it’s our fourth game of the season. As a staff, we’ve got to be extremely smart on how we handle that aspect of the game.”

“Probably the deeper as you go into your regular season, if you are in a position to make the postseason, you might increase that a little bit. One of the things that I think defenses sometimes forget — I’m not saying they forget it completely — is the quarterback and the ability to run.”
