The Philadelphia Eagles might have lost Carson Wentz for the rest of the year. Nothing has been diagnosed publicly yet, but sources close to the team fear Wentz has torn his ACL.
Eagles are concerned QB Carson Wentz tore his left ACL, per source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) December 11, 2017
Wentz left the game and Nick Foles finished up for the team, and would be the guy if Wentz is out for any amount of time.
The Eagles held on for the win over the Los Angeles Rams today to clinch the NFC East crown with an 11-2 record at this point. Now, they play the waiting game to see if its possible Wentz can return, or if they will have to rely on Foles for the rest of the year and into the playoffs. Philadelphia is still battling for the #1 seed in the NFC and homefield advantage throughout the playoffs.
They also host the Cowboys in the last game of the year, a game that Dallas my need to win to make the playoffs.
Note: We hate the Eagles, but we shouldn’t root for injury. So let’s stay classy, BTB!
