ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the Eagles are "concerned" that Wentz tore his left ACL, adding that Wentz's knee buckled as he walked off the field to head to the locker room. Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reported "initial tests don't definitely show a complete tear," and an MRI will reveal more information Monday.
Wentz completed 23 of 41 passes for 291 yards, four touchdowns and an interception before exiting. After the game, Wentz sent out the following tweet:
Carson Wentz @cj_wentz
NFC East Champs! So proud of the resiliency of this team. Such a special group of men. And I greatly appreciate all the prayers! I know my God is a powerful one with a perfect plan. Time to just lean in to him and trust whatever the circumstances! #Proverbs3:5-62017-12-11 02:44:20
When the Eagles selected Wentz with the second overall pick of the 2016 draft, most expected him to be more of a long-term project for Philadelphia rather than a quarterback who could start right away.
Were it not for Wentz's hot start, his rookie year likely would've been painted in a more positive light. Instead, his 3,782 passing yards, 16 touchdowns and 14 interceptions felt somewhat underwhelming since he had 769 yards, five touchdowns and zero turnovers through Philadelphia's first three wins.
Wentz still threw for more yards than any other rookie in 2016, and only Dak Prescott had more touchdowns (23).
Wentz has been excellent in his second season. Through his first 12 games, he has thrown for 3,005 yards and 29 touchdowns, while the Eagles have positioned themselves as one of the NFL's best teams.
Foles has steadily declined since reaching the Pro Bowl in 2013, and he attempted just 55 total passes for the Kansas City Chiefs last year.
