Carson Wentz centre reportedly tore his ACL in the third quarter of Sunday's afternoon game against the Los Angeles Rams

He was injured during the third quarter of the Eagles' 43-35 win on Sunday that clinched the NFC East divisional title.

NFL football fans in the City of Brotherly Love were stunned this weekend when the team's leader went down with a torn ACL in his left knee.

Wentz, a favourite in the MVP race, had an MRI on Monday that revealed the severity of the injury. I hate it for Carson Wentz. "But at the same time, it's been the next-man-up mentality, and that's how we approach it". The injury, of course, ends Wentz's MVP-caliber season dead in its tracks. That's just going to continue. You get everybody ready to play.

Wentz finished the video by repeating that he would be back stronger than ever. "So that right there is a great step in the right direction". He initially remained in the game after taking hits on a touchdown run that was called back, but he was evaluated by trainers after scoring on a fourth-down throw to Alshon Jeffery and was later ruled out.

The Eagles have overcome several key injuries and now have to move forward without their most indispensable player.

"This has been a resilient football team all season long", Pederson said.

Bryan Singer Accused of Raping 17-Year-Old Boy in 2003
Meanwhile, a representative for Singer said in a statement that the director "categorically denies these allegations ". The lawsuit explains that plaintiff Cesar Sanchez-Guzman attended a party on a yacht in 2003, where he met Singer.

Wentz said he will be with the team to support them the rest of the season.

It was Wentz's 33rd TD pass, setting the team's single-season record. At least Philadelphia didn't lose their second straight game. He is 20-17 as a starter, including playoffs. Pederson insisted that Foles has earned, and would receive, the same autonomy over the offense that Wentz enjoyed, but that's clearly coach-speak and can't possibly be true.

"My confidence is extremely high in Nick", Pederson said. It's been 17 years since Baltimore Ravens quarterback Trent Dilfer rode the coattails of Ray Lewis and Jamal Lewis toward a Super Bowl title, and it's been 15 since Brad Johnson played second fiddle to the Tampa 2 scheme that won coach Jon Gruden his first and only Super Bowl title. 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. He's smart to the point of he and I are going to continue to dialogue like Carson and I did during the week.

"It's so humbling to know how many people are praying for me and lifting me up and encouraging me". Pederson said he hasn't spoken to personnel boss Howie Roseman about adding a third quarterback yet.

"He did", Smith said, "what we expected him to do".
