Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz tore his ACL on Sunday.
Philadelphia Eagles starting quarterback Carson Wentz, one of the most promising young signal-callers in the NFL, is reportedly now out for the season. Wentz tore his ACL against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday. The Eagles made the news official on Monday afternoon.
Wentz suffered the injury near the end of the third quarter after he was sandwiched by two Rams defenders. Wentz scored on the play, but a holding call negated the touchdown.
MRI showed that Eagles’ QB and NFL MVP candidate Carson Wentz did tear his ACL. Wentz is our for season.
Nick Foles time.

With Wentz out, Philadelphia will turn to backup Nick Foles, who has a decent amount of experience. He’s started 36 games in his career.
Wentz, in just his second season, was having an amazing campaign – throwing for 3,296 yards and 33 touchdowns against just seven interceptions. Hopefully, he makes a full recovery.
