The Philadelphia Eagles fear that second-year quarterback Carson Wentz has suffered a torn ACL. The Eagles are expected to update his condition following the game against the Los Angeles Rams.

If this is indeed the case, like they believe it is, then he’ll be forced to miss the rest of the season. In addition, their Super Bowl hopes would be greatly dashed, because he was having an MVP-like season.

As Wentz was diving into the end zone for a touchdown, Wentz was hit in the knee by Rams safety Mark Barron. Shortly thereafter, he went to the locker room and was ruled out to return almost immediately.

After suffering the hit, he returned to the game for four more plays, before going to the locker room. On the fourth play, he threw a touchdown to Alshon Jeffery.

Despite not having a limp when he was going to the locker room, he was ruled out very quickly. He was replaced by former Eagles starter Nick Foles, who signed a one-year deal with the team in the off-season.

Prior to leaving the game, he went 23 of 41 for 291 passing yards with four touchdowns and an interception. He also set an Eagles record for the single-season touchdown record on the touchdown completion to Jeffery.

Even before the Barrow hit, Wentz has taken a lot of big hits this season and in this game.

This season, in 12 games, he has gone 242 of 399 for 3,005 passing yards, including four 300-plus-yardage games. He also had 29 touchdowns and six interceptions.
