Carson Wentz injury: Philadelphia Eagles quarterback tore ACL, out for the season

Eagles fans weigh in on Wentz's injury Foles return

Eagles confirm quarterback Carson Wentz is out for the season with a torn ACL

It's unclear what the Eagles will do at quarterback, but the job appears to belong to Nick Foles in the short term.

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz (11) during the game against the Los Angeles Rams at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. There is still plenty of football left to be played and this season isn't over until it's over.

"The two weeks that we had [at the end of the regular season] were valuable to me, because we could put more emphasis on a few things that we wouldn't have put emphasis on with Phil Simms", Parcells said. We have been plagued with injuries all year long.

"Obviously, it's been a rough day for me, personally, I'm not going to lie".

With four touchdown passes in the game, Wentz built his season total to an NFL-best 33, which also broke Sonny Jurgensen's franchise record for most in a single season. "If there's ever an opportunity for me as a head football coach to rally the troops, now might be the time".

Carson Wentz was sandwiched by two Rams defenders during Sunday's game in Los Angeles.

The Eagles next face the New York Giants this Sunday before a Christmas Day game against the Oakland Raiders and a season finale against the Dallas Cowboys on December 31. "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".

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

In eight games, Garcia had 10 touchdown passes, two interceptions and an impressive passer rating of 95.8. "To the fans out there, you can't lose faith". That's just the love and appreciation they have for me and what I was able to help the Eagles do back in 2006.

"People thought our chances were gone by the wayside when Jason Peters went down too, and when Darren Sproles goes down, and all the guys I mentioned earlier", Pederson said. They will be a heavy favorite even without Wentz.
