Carson Wentz on cover of Sports Illustrated, but finding it may cost you time and money

FARGO—Carson Wentz is one of four players featured on the NFL Preview edition of Sports Illustrated, but finding it may be tough in his old college town.

Walgreens isn't carrying it. Target isn't either. Barnes & Noble in Fargo does have plenty of Wentz to go around, saying they ordered extra in preparation for an eager fanbase. They are selling the magazine edition for $5.99, but if they run out, plenty of online outlets have already taken advantage of selling the Eagles' quarterback's SI appearance.

The cover runs as low as $7.21 on eBay to $19.95 on Etsy. It runs for $19.95 on the Sports Illustrated Covers website, but $5.99 on the Sports Illustrated Store website.

The other three editions feature San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman, Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck and Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson.

Each of the highlighted players had been injured but is making a comeback in the 2018 season. Wentz, the former North Dakota State star, is ranked 17th in ESPN's Top 100 and third in NFL Network's Top 100 going into the 2018 season.

Wentz is coming back from a torn anterior cruciate ligament he suffered during a game last season against the Los Angeles Rams. As of now, he has not been cleared for contact in practice or camp. Eagles coach Doug Pederson is expected to make a decision on Friday for the Sept. 6 opener against Atlanta.
