Report: Eagles fear Carson Wentz suffered knee injury that will end season

The Philadelphia Eagles are fearing that for quarterback Carson Wentz, the season might be over.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that the Eagles fear that Wentz tore his left ACL.

While Wentz was seen leaving the field under his own power, the knee did buckle while the cameras weren’t on him, per Schefter.

Wentz got hurt in the third quarter when he got hit in the end zone on a scramble that appeared to be a touchdown. That touchdown was later nullified, but he stayed in the game four more plays and threw a touchdown pass to wide receiver Alshon Jeffery.

The Eagles were able to hold on Sunday and defeat the Los Angeles Rams on the road. That win clinched the NFC East for the Eagles.

However, they had a real chance at the No. 1 seed in the NFC playoffs, and possibly a trip to the Super Bowl. Without Wentz, none of that is likely to happen.

It’s hard enough to win in the NFL without a starting quarterback, but Wentz is one of the best in the league. In his second NFL season he has passed for 33 touchdowns and 7 interceptions.

Add losing Wentz to playing in an extremely competitive NFC, the Eagles will have their hands full if Nick Foles has to lead them the rest of this season.
