Jenkins, Kelce speak on Wentz's return at JCC sports awards dinner in Cherry Hill

CHERRY HILL, N.J. (WPVI) -- Philadelphia Eagles' players Malcolm Jenkins and Jason Kelce were the keynote speakers at an annual event Monday night that raises money for programs at the Jewish Community Center in Cherry Hill, New Jersey.

With Jenkins and Kelce on the microphone at the Katz JCC Sports Award Dinner, fans had two things on their mind: Carson Wentz's return slated for Sunday and another run for the Super Bowl.

"I'm excited for him to be back there. I know he's chomping at the bit. You're definitely going to get everything you got from that guy every time he steps out on the field," said Kelce.
