Eagles Concerned QB Carson Wentz Has Torn ACL

Update:

Ian Rapoport reports that while the Eagles believe QB QB Carson Wentz suffered a torn ACL, initial tests didn’t definitively show a complete tear.

Adam Schefter reports that the Eagles are concerned QB Carson Wentz tore his left ACL during Sunday’s game against the Rams.

According to Schefter, Wentz walked off the field at one point and his left knee buckled.

You can expect Wentz to an undergo an MRI on Monday to determine the severity of the injury. However, this would be worst-case for the Eagles, who have been the best team in the NFL all season.

We’ll have more regarding Wentz’s injury as the news is available.

Eagles QB Carson Wentz was taken to the locker room during the third quarter of Sunday’s game against the Rams after taking a big hit while trying to score a touchdown.

The Eagles have already ruled him out with a knee injury. Nick Foles will take over as the Eagles’ starting quarterback for the remainder of the game.

Wentz managed to stay in the game and still throw a touchdown to Alshon Jeffery a few plays later, despite the injury. However, it’s really concerning how quickly the Eagles ruled him out for the game with a knee injury.

Wentz, 24, is a former first-round pick of the Eagles back in 2016. He’s currently in the second year of his four-year, $26.7 million contract that included a $16.7 million signing bonus.

Wentz stands to make base salaries of $2.87 million and $4.08 million over the next two years of the agreement.

Entering today’s game, Wentz had thrown for 3,005 yards while completing 60.7 percent of his passes to go along with 29 touchdowns and six interceptions. He has also rushed for 283 yards.
