Philadelphia Eagles fans are having a hard time processing the sudden loss of starting quarterback Carson Wentz, who suffered a season-ending torn ACL on Sunday against the Rams.

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz took to social media to thank his supporters.

The Philadelphia Eagles announced Monday that league MVP candidate Carson Wentz is out for the remainder of the season due to a torn ACL.

"The reason we went out and got Nick Foles are for reasons like this, and for situations like this", said Pederson, who confirmed that Foles will be the starter.

Even with the two teams going in opposite directions this season, it's a little surprising to see the spread that high after learning Wentz would be out for the year.

Eagles: Aside from Wentz, starting tight end Zach Ertz missed the game with a concussion.

"Obviously, it's been a rough day for me, personally, I'm not going to lie". Dr. James Andrews, in comments to ESPN's Chris Mortensen, said the timetable for return should be 9-12 months, and too many players want to rush that timetable.

"It's so humbling to know how many people are praying for me and lifting me up and encouraging me".

Wentz bounced back from throwing an interception on the game's third play to throw touchdown passes on the Eagles' next three possessions for a 21-7 lead. We have been plagued with injuries all year long. Pederson said it appeared Wentz tore his anterior cruciate ligament before contact with two tacklers. "And, you know if there's ever an opportunity for me as a head football coach to rally the troops, you know now might be the time".

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

Third, the Eagles play at the Giants next Sunday in NY.

"And it will be tough on me for a little bit", he said. And all the guys I mentioned earlier, and to the fans out there, they can't, you can't lose faith.
