He will nearly certainly miss all of the Eagles spring and early summer activities next offseason, with training camp and the start of the 2018 season being in jeopardy as well.

He was injured during the third quarter of the Eagles' 43-35 win on Sunday that clinched the NFC East divisional title.

Eagles head coach Doug Pederson confirmed the team's worst fears Monday afternoon when he announced quarterback Carson Wentz suffered a torn ACL in Sunday's win over the Los Angeles Rams. It hasn't even been a full season, but if he continues to make this kind of impact for Los Angeles on offense as a reliable weapon for Goff to work with, Kupp is going to turn into one of the biggest steals from this year's draft class, and will most likely only get better with experience.

Is Eagles Quarterback Carson Wentz Out for the Season?

The quarterback stayed on the field for the ensuing four plays, throwing a touchdown pass to Alshon Jeffery to give the Eagles a brief lead, before being evaluated in the team's medical tent and sent to the locker room for further examinations. We overcame our running back.

Wentz has been special and he proved it again on Sunday. Nine-time Pro Bowl left tackle Jason Peters, return specialist/running back Darren Sproles, star linebacker Jordan Hicks and special teams captain Chris Maragos are out for the season. "You never really know what's going to happen, but I didn't feel like he was going to hold us back in any way". In the third quarter of that game, Eagles quarterback and NFL MVP contender Carson Wentz went down with a knee injury. There is still plenty of football left to be played and this season isn't over until it's over. He tied an National Football League record with seven TD passes in a game at Oakland in November 2013 and went to the Pro Bowl, winning the offensive MVP award. Foles spent a year with the Rams, then a season in Kansas City with Pederson as offensive coordinator, before returning to Philadelphia as a free agent this season. "He's a veteran player who has played and won a lot of games".

I know I will be cheering for him! Nick's a highly intelligent football player.
