Carson Wentz out as QB for rest of season

Is Eagles Quarterback Carson Wentz Out for the Season?

Eagles head coach Doug Pederson will speak Monday at noon after star quarterback Carson Wentz was injured Sunday late in the third quarter against the Los Angeles Rams.

Garcia is still beloved in Philadelphia after his magnificent performance in 2006, when he took over toward the end of the year after Donovan McNabb's season-ending knee injury. Wentz was later escorted off the field due to a knee injury at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on December 10, 2017 in Los Angeles, California.

That's understandable considering Wentz was playing at an MVP-caliber level and led the Eagles to the top of the NFC standings. As one of the teams' captains, he will be on the sidelines and in the quarterback room helping out Nick Foles throughout the remainder of the season. So proud of the resiliency of this team.

Wentz said he will be with the team to support them the rest of the season.




"It's your job to go in there and just try to find completions and play fast because it had been awhile since I played", Foles said. Nick's a highly intelligent football player. "Until I know more tomorrow on him, it's hard to say, but listen, there's a lot of leaders on that football team right now, and you saw it tonight".

Not to suggest that Pederson's playbook isn't legit, but Wentz's rare combination of intelligence, arm strength, mobility and the ability to resurrect dead plays with Houdini-like escapes from the pocket are more responsible for the sleepless nights facing opposing defensive coordinators each week than Pederson's play calls. Pederson said it appeared Wentz tore his anterior cruciate ligament before contact with two tacklers.

"If there's ever an opportunity for me to rally the troops as the football coach, now might be the time", he said, ESPN reported. "I'm sure if you look at my Twitter, you'll still see Eagles fans wanting me to come back".

A word from Wentz:Faith in Foles... They will be a heavy favorite even without Wentz.
