Eagles QB Carson Wentz knocked out of Rams sport. Doctors believe he tore his ACL. – The Denver Post

LOS ANGELES — Two sources familiar with the injury tell The Associated Press that doctors believe Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz tore his left anterior cruciate ligament in a win over the Rams Sunday and will miss the rest of the season and playoffs.

Wentz, a favorite in the NFL MVP race, will have an MRI on Monday to confirm the severity of the injury. Both people spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to release the information.

“I don’t know anything until we evaluate him (Monday),” Eagles coach Doug Pederson said.

Wentz was hurt late in the third quarter of Philadelphia’s 43-35 comeback win at Los Angeles. Backup Nick Foles rallied the Eagles (11-2) to a win that secured the NFC East title and put them in first place in the conference with three games remaining.

Wentz was hit hard as he scrambled into the end zone on a play that was called back because of holding. He stayed in the game and threw a 3-yard touchdown pass four plays later, setting the franchise record for most TD passes in a season with 33.
