Carson Wentz’s season is officially over.

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson confirmed the worst during his Monday press conference. Wentz did indeed suffer an ACL tear during the Eagles’ win over the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday.

The injury to Wentz is obviously a huge disappointment in a season where the Eagles had legitimate Super Bowl aspirations.

Pederson confirmed the Eagles will move forward with Nick Foles as their starter. The head coach expressed a lot of confidence in Foles, who was drafted to Philadelphia when Pederson was the Eagles’ quarterback coach in 2012. Nate Sudfeld projects to be the backup to Foles.

The Eagles still have three games remaining in the regular season. They’ll play at least one playoff game, too, since they officially clinched the NFC East on Sunday. The Eagles can still clinch the No. 1 overall seed by winning at least two of their remaining games.

Philadelphia still has enough talen on their roster to win games. But it’s difficult to envision going on a long playoff run with their backup quarterback.

We’ll see.
