Eagles' Worst Fears Confirmed; Carson Wentz's Season Is Over

Posted Dec 11, 2017

Head coach Doug Pederson announced on Monday afternoon that quarterback Carson Wentz is out for the remainder of the 2017 season after suffering a torn left ACL against the Rams.

Wentz was injured late in the third quarter of Sunday's win after attempting a touchdown dive that was called back due to penalty. He stayed in the game for an additional four plays and connected with wide receiver Alshon Jeffery for a touchdown on fourth-and-goal from the 2-yard line. After the play, Wentz headed to the locker room.

Before leaving the game, Wentz set the franchise record for most touchdowns in a single season with 33. It was his fourth game of the season with at least four passing touchdowns.

Pederson confirmed that quarterback Nick Foles will start in place of Wentz for the remainder of the year.
