Eagles Carson Wentz ACL Tear Confirmed; Out For the Season

The Eagles have the NFL’s best record at 11-2 but their worst fears have been confirmed.

On Monday, an MRI confirmed that WB Carson Wentz has a torn ACL and will miss the remainder of the season.

Wentz will miss the remainder of the season and postseason and will require surgery. Although no timetable was provided, the recovery will extend through the offseason and possibly into next season. Coach Doug Pederson said he was not told of any other ligament damage in the knee.

The injury came during the Eagles 43-35 win over the LA Rams on Sunday. The team will count on veteran backup Nick Foles for the rest of the regular season heading into the playoffs.
