Eagles QB Wentz out for season with torn ACL

Is Eagles Quarterback Carson Wentz Out for the Season Wentz injury more proof Philly fan paranoia is real

Although the Philadelphia Eagles have already locked up the NFC East division title and assured themselves a spot in the playoffs thanks to a 43-35 win over the Los Angeles Rams Sunday, the success came at a big cost.

Wentz was the best thing this franchise had going, and now he is dealing with a serious injury that has derailed the careers of a number of young quarterbacks over the last few years. "Tough to replace. But you know what, the reason we went out and got Nick Foles is for reasons like this", said Pederson.

Dec 10, 2017; Los Angeles, CA, USA; Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz (11) is tackled by Los Angeles Rams inside linebacker Bryce Hager (54) and Los Angeles Rams linebacker Samson Ebukam (50) during the third quarter at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. This has been a resilient football team all season long.

"One of the main things I tried to do is explain to the team that Jeff Hostetler wasn't going to be the reason why we didn't succeed", Parcells said by phone Monday. Pederson said it appeared Wentz tore his anterior cruciate ligament before contact with two tacklers. "If there's ever an opportunity for me as a head football coach to rally the troops, now might be the time".

"It sure can, heck yeah", Pederson said. We've overcome a core special-teams player this year.

The quarterback stayed on the field for the ensuing four plays, throwing a touchdown pass to Alshon Jeffery to give the Eagles a brief lead, before being evaluated in the team's medical tent and sent to the locker room for further examinations. The timetable for Wentz's return is not set at the moment, but we know for a fact that the Eagles will not be rushing him back.

Foles, a more than capable backup, has proven he can win in spot relief, but he's nowhere near Wentz's level.

"I'm absolutely ready", Foles said after Sunday's game. "You can't lose faith". They don't forget. They're very appreciative, and I appreciate that and how they think that", laughing now, "even at 47 I can come back and do it.
