It’s been quite the week for injured Eagles QB Carson Wentz.

Two days later, he got engaged to his girlfriend Maddie.
She said YES! And now Maddie and I both got us a ring ?? can’t wait to marry my best friend! God is doing some amazing things and I can’t thank him enough! pic.twitter.com/OPr0kilabh

On Thursday morning, Wentz joined his teammates for the Super Bowl parade in Philadelphia.
Finally, on Thursday Night, he was a guest speaker for the National Prayer Breakfast dinner in place of U.S. Vice President Mike Pence where he apparently stole the show with a passionate speech on leadership.
At U.S. Congress National Prayer Breakfast, attended by the president, #Eagles QB Carson Wentz challenged everyone to view leadership not as "power or gain or being in charge," but putting others first.

The grind never stops, as Wentz will continue his rehab from a knee injury and attempt to make it back as the Eagles starter on opening day t0 2017 when they hoist the first Super Bowl championship banner in its teams history.
