The worst news possible hit the Philadelphia Eagles franchise Monday morning as it was revealed that quarterback Carson Wentz tore his ACL during Sunday’s win over the Los Angeles Rams.

Wentz is reportedly out for the remainder of the season, according to Eagles head coach Doug Pederson.

Wentz, 24, was hurt on a third-quarter touchdown run that was called back due to a holding penalty in route to their 43-35 victory. He remained in the game for the remainder of the drive and hit Alshon Jeffery on a touchdown pass before sitting out the fourth quarter.

Nick Foles took over for Wentz for the remainder of the game.

Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reported initial tests did not reveal a complete tear of Wentz’s ACL, though the team feared his season would be over. However, an MRI on Monday confirmed the injury.

Wentz, in his second year as Philadelphia’s starting quarterback, threw for 3,296 yards and 33 touchdowns to just seven interceptions, leading the Eagles to an 11-2 start that put them in contention for the NFC’s top overall seed.

Foles will take over for the remainder of the season. He and his team will be traveling to New York to compete against NFC East rival Giants (2-10). Kickoff is set for 10am PST.
