After leading the Philadelphia Eagles to an 11-2 record, star quarterback Carson Wentz has suffered a torn ACL and is out for the rest of the season.
According to ESPN, the second-year suffered the injury to his left knee during the Eagles’ Sunday (Dec. 10) victory against the Los Angeles Rams.
Wentz underwent an MRI on Monday (Dec. 11), which determined the extent of the injury.
Coach Doug Pederson said that Nick Foles will start in Wentz’s absence.
The Eagles have clinched the NFC East title. But without Wentz, the team may have a tough time winning their first Super Bowl.
This season, Wentz passed for 3,296 yards and leads the NFL with 33 touchdown passes.
