We didn’t get a chance to hear from Carson Wentz after the team’s loss to the Seahawks on Sunday, but the Eagles’ quarterback posted an update on Instagram about his head injury and his thoughts on how the 2019 season ended.
“So dang proud of this team and how we battled and overcame so much this season. Not the ending we envisioned but we will all grow and be stronger because of it! The fight and resiliency that this team displayed was so impressive. Love these guys!
Also, appreciate the thoughts and prayers— Im feeling good today and will be just fine! Head injuries are a scary thing so I appreciate everybody’s thoughts and prayers. Hate not being out there to finish it out with my guys because of a play like that, but it’s the unfortunate part of this game. It’s all in Gods plan, not mine! Trusting in him
Philly, year 4 was one fun ride. Appreciate the love and support— especially the real ones who were with us through the highs and lows Onward to next year... big things comin’, believe that! #flyeaglesfly”
Wentz took a big helmet hit from behind in the first quarter against Seattle, and Josh McCown noted that he didn’t feel right following the drive and went to be evaluate for a head injury. Eventually Wentz went to the locker room for further testing before being ruled out for the remainder of the game.
It’s good to hear that he’s feeling good and will be just fine — especially because it’s evident that this is his team for the foreseeable future. Wentz finally got his first playoff start on Sunday, even if it didn’t last long. Here’s hoping next season he gets his first playoff win, too.
