Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentze is expected to be active Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers after suffering a concussion.
Coach Chip Kelly said Monday he’s still optimistic Wentz can play against the Steelers.
Kelly said the team expects Wentz, who has a concussion protocol, to play.
Wentz was limited during the bye week and was sidelined by a lower back strain, Kelly said.
The team expects him to be ready to play Sunday, he said.
The Eagles (4-4) are trying to win their first division title since 2010, when they finished the season 7-9.
They are 5-5 in their past nine games.
Wendz missed the past two games with a sprained left ankle.
He missed the team’s win over the Detroit Lions on Sept. 17.
He has been inactive since.
