NFC Notes: Commanders, Cowboys, Giants


Commanders QB Carson Wentz was asked about what his emotions will be like when he returns to Philadelphia this season as a rival NFC quarterback.

“I know that’ll be a big game. A lot of emotions,” Wentz said on NFL Network. “I’m sure fans will eat that one up and it’ll be fun — make for a good storyline. But at the end of the day, it’s going to be just another ballgame. It’s going to be a huge divisional game for us when that one comes. So I’m excited for it, but at the same time, I’m trying not to get too excited for that one, because, again, it’s just football. Can’t press it. Can’t do too much.”


  • Cowboys HC Mike McCarthy when asked if RB Ezekiel Elliott is completely healthy: “I would hope so. I was looking at the GPS yesterday of the workouts Tuesday. I mean, 22 miles an hour in May is pretty damn good. So yeah, he looks great.” (Jon Machota)
  • McCarthy on the situation involving CB Kelvin Joseph: “I understand the concern, and I just want you to know that when the situation occurred, we had a lot of internal conversation that was really in-depth. Based on the information that we’ve been given, we felt it was important to support him.” (Machota)
  • McCarthy also commented on starting rookie OL Tyler Smith playing at left guard: “I wouldn’t get too caught up on where exactly Tyler is playing … He will work both left guard and left tackle. You can see the twitch is something that jumps out at you. I thought he had a really nice day.” (Machota)
  • When it comes to special teams, McCarthy admitted the team still needs to figure out what is happening at kick returner, suggesting they may bring someone in: “As Stephen [Jones] says all the time, and it’s so true, player acquisition never stops. That’s definitely something we’ve got to get answered.” (Michael Gehlken)


  • Giants HC Brian Daboll on WR Kadarius Toney: “He’s been a pleasure to be around. Good teammate. Smart. He’s been great.” (Zack Rosenblatt)
