Is Eagles Quarterback Carson Wentz Out for the Season?

Is Eagles Quarterback Carson Wentz Out for the Season?

With the Hollywood sign overlooking the L.A. Memorial Coliseum on a smog-free Sunday, Philadelphia's Nick Foles was ready for his close-up.

While the Philadelphia Eagles were able to beat the Los Angeles Rams and win the NFC North title, they lost their starting quarterback for the rest of the season. It's just been the next-man-up mentality and that's going to continue. "You just put your head down and you just go to work". The former North Dakota State star, the No. 2 overall pick in last year's National Football League draft, finishes his second pro season with 3,296 yards passing and a Philadelphia single-season record 33 touchdowns against only seven interceptions.

The 11-2 Eagles have the NFC's No. 1 seed with three games remaining: at the New York Giants, and home against Oakland and Dallas.

As for Wentz's return, it will be great to see him overcome his devastating injury.

Wentz suffered his injury near the end of the third quarter.




"If there's ever an opportunity for me to rally the troops as the football coach, now might be the time", Pederson said.

Wentz continued for another four plays after getting hurt, finding Alshon Jeffery for a two-yard touchdown on fourth-and-goal before leaving the field. This has been a resilient football team all season long.

It was Wentz's 33rd TD pass, setting the team's single-season record. "He's a veteran player who has played and won a lot of games". Foles spent a year with the Rams, then a season in Kansas City with Pederson as offensive coordinator, before returning to Philadelphia as a free agent this season.

How Wentz will recover from the ACL injury, and what kind of impact the injury will have on him, is a major unknown.

"Obviously we don't want to lose our best player, if not the most important player on the team for sure and that's tough", said wide receiver Torrey Smith, who had a team-high 100 receiving yards on six catches. Pederson said he hasn't spoken to personnel boss Howie Roseman about adding a third quarterback yet.
