BREAKING: AP sources say doctors believe Eagles star Carson Wentz, an MVP favorite, has a torn ACL. He will have an MRI to confirm.— AP Sports (@AP_Sports) December 11, 2017
Wentz seemingly suffered the injury during a run into the end zone in the third quarter of the Eagles-Rams game. He stayed in to throw a touchdown to Jeffery before heading to the sideline and being ruled out for the game.
This is all just terrible news. Sounds like the Eagles will be without their star quarterback and NFL MVP candidate for the rest of the season.
Philadelphia is headed to the post-season after officially clinch the NFC East so they’ll have to rely on their backup quarterback, Nick Foles, in the playoffs. Sigh.
Eagles head coach Doug Pederson was asked about Wentz’s status after the game but he didn’t provide any updates. He did note that Wentz was happy that the team won the NFC East.
Wentz’s injury is such a shitty development during a very promising season.
Carson Wentz’s ACL was loose when it was tested manually today, which is why team fears it’s torn; Wentz is scheduled to undergo an MRI in Philadelphia on Monday, per source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) December 11, 2017
