Eagles QB Carson Wentz revealed on Friday that, in addition to the ACL, he also tore the LCL in his left knee. He had both ligaments surgically repaired on December 13 -- 3 days after going down vs. the Rams. Wentz said that the 2nd ligament tear doesn't impact his recovery timeline and that he expects to be ready for the start of the 2018 campaign. "I feel very confident, I truly believe, my goal is to be ready for Week 1," he said. "I’m going to push and do everything I can to be ready, and I’m confident in that."

Eagles HC Doug Pederson confirmed on Monday that QB Carson Wentz has a torn ACL and is done for the season. It's a brutal end to a breakout season for the 2nd-year QB. He finishes with 3,296 passing yards, an Eagles-record 33 TDs and just 7 INTs. He added another 299 yards on the ground. Wentz is sitting 2nd among QBs in fantasy points. He'll have almost exactly 9 months to get ready for the start of the 2018 campaign. His rehab will obviously be 1 of the biggest storylines of the offseason. Philly, meanwhile, will roll with QB Nick Foles the rest of the way. The 28-year-old has 36 starts under his belt and sports a career 60.5% completion rate, 7.2 yards per attempt and 56:27 TD-to-INT ratio. It's also worth noting that Eagles HC Doug Pederson was Foles' QB coach during Foles' first 2 NFL seasons. He'll be a QB2 option the next 2 weeks in favorable matchups against the Giants and Raiders. But the Wentz loss is still a significant downgrade for this Eagles offense.

The Eagles are "concerned" that QB Carson Wentz tore his left ACL in Sunday's win over the Rams, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Wentz is undoubtedly scheduled for further testing, but docs can often diagnose ACL injuries in the locker room. If confirmed, Wentz's 2017 season would be over and Philly would turn to QB Nick Foles. The 6-year vet has plenty of NFL experience and fared fine in relief of Wentz today, completing 6 of 10 passes for 42 yards. It'd still, of course, be a significant downgrade for the Eagles offense.

Eagles QB Carson Wentz suffered a left knee injury in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game against the Rams. He remained in the game to throw a TD to WR Alshon Jeffery, but Wentz then headed back to the locker room and was ruled out for the rest of the game a short while later. QB Nick Foles will finish out this game for Philly. We'll pass along an update on Wentz when we get one.

The forecast for today's 49ers-Eagles game calls for an 80% chance of rain with winds of 15-17 mph. That's certainly enough to impact at least deep passes and kicks. We've adjusted our projections for this game. Check 'em out in the Week 8 Rankings.

Injury Predictor

Last year, Wentz suffered a hairline fracture to his ribs in the preseason opener. Multiple outlets reported that Wentz also dealt with shoulder soreness later in the season — hardly a surprise considering he chucked it 607 times. Fortunately, he’s back to full strength after gutting out a 16-game rookie campaign.
