Kicker Caleb Sturgis said he would return to practice Monday after being cleared through the NFL concussion protocol, and quarterback Carson Wentz said he will throw for the third day in a row, despite sore ribs.

"It's killing me not to be out there," Wentz said. "It's one of those things. It just takes time."

Wentz said his goal is still to play in the final preseason game, Sept. 1 vs. the Jets.

Wentz said his ribs will be scanned again in about a week. The team said he suffered a hairline fracture in the preseason opener against Tampa Bay.

"I'm feeling good now, in my daily activities," said Wentz, the second player taken in the 2016 draft.

Earlier, Eagles coach Doug Pederson told reporters Wentz would not throw Monday, after experiencing soreness from his Saturday and Sunday throwing.

Wentz said he always wears a flak jacket, but Tampa linebacker Micah Awe "hit me at a funny spot, got me just right."

Wentz said meeting Flyers coach Dave Hakstol, a fellow North Dakota resident, at Saturday's practice was "a pretty cool experience."

Sturgis, meanwhile, said he felt like a weight had been dropped on his head when Donnie Jones' warmup punt in Pittsburgh on Thursday left him with a concussion. Sturgis and the other specialists had taken off their helmets and were wearing baseball-style caps. Sturgis went down immediately, bringing Jones over on the run.

"I've never heard of that happening before," Jones said.

"It didn't feel good," said Sturgis, who said he has taken some grief in the locker room. One popular joke has been that Cody Parkey, competing with Sturgis for the job, paid Jones to conk his competition.

"If Donnie's that good …" Sturgis said, laughing.

Sturgis said he will always wear a helmet on the field now.

Jones said the only incident of this type he can remember was several years ago, when he accidentally hit a Cardinals wideout or defensive back in the shoulder with a warmup punt, enraging the player, who wanted to fight.
