FARGO — Former North Dakota State quarterback Carson Wentz returned to Fargo this week to visit with local sponsors and high school football players.

The Philadelphia Eagles star arrived Thursday, June 28, and had been spotted downtown on Friday, where he was attending a private event.

Chase Callahan, who spoke to Forum News Service on behalf of Wentz, said Wentz wasn't available to speak with the media, adding the QB was there to visit sponsors BlackRidgeBANK and Sanford Health.

On Thursday night, Wentz attended an event for his AO1 Foundation, a nonprofit organization he founded last year to benefit underprivileged children, the physically disabled and veterans. Wentz also planned to do some promotional video work Friday, Callahan said.

Wentz tore both his anterior cruciate and lateral collateral ligaments in his left leg against the Los Angeles Rams during a game Dec. 10. He had been an MVP candidate prior to the season-ending injury and the Eagles won Super Bowl with his backup Nick Foles.

Callahan said Friday there would be no comment on the progress in Wentz's recovery.

In May, Wentz participated in individual drills during organized team activities, less than five and a half months removed from surgery.

Wentz has said he is eyeing a return for the season opener.

Minot State University will host Wentz for a free public Q&A Saturday.
