Mood “subdued” in Eagles organization

Getty Images

The Eagles have known all season that the recklessness of quarterback Carson Wentz presented the biggest threat to a Super Bowl berth. The risk came to fruition on Sunday, with Wentz suffering a knee injury while running the ball to the end zone.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the mood in the organization currently is “subdued,” which confirms the various reports that the Eagles currently fear the worst when it comes to Wentz’s left knee.

The reports indicate that the Eagles fear a torn ACL. In many situations, the ACL tear can be preliminarily diagnosed via physical manipulation of the knee. Sometimes, however, the MRI shows additional, different, or less damage.

  1. He hurt his knee in a freak incident diving into the end zone where his leg got hit between two guys.

    How was that reckless? Maybe that helps fit your narrative.

  2. The Giles are still in a very favorable position to compete for a championship if this is season ending

  3. Foles has a clue, but aside frmo the 90 Giants I cant think of a team that lost a franchise QB late in the season and went on to win a SB.

    Reckless? The part where the starting QB is DIVING HEADFIRST into the endzone into what he knows is going to be a TON OF CONTACT.

    That’s where it’s reckless… if he’s a FB, RB or a WR that isn’t WR#1, then maybe not so reckless.

    For a QB? Reckless to the max.

  5. It’s amazing how a QB that plays like he actually cares about winning is called “reckless “. I’d take that every day over the multitude of today’s players that go out of their way to avoid contact. I hope he comes back better than ever and continues to play reckless

  6. They’ve only lost their top QB, try losing your top 2 QBs….SKOL

    ————————————————————————

    You don’t even have a top 15 quarterback!

  7. As a long time fan of the Chargers I am envious of teams with mobile QBs, but so many of them get hurt because they would rather scramble and run then learn how to read a defense

  8. Season not over by any means. Eagles will likely be #1 seed and only have to win two home playoff games to get to SB. With that defense and running game they are still the NFC favorite.

    Who would you rather be: Eagles with Foles, and home field or Vikings and Keenam?

  9. If Wentz is reckless, it’s because he hasn’t been coached not to play recklessly. In other words, they feared this injury and did nothing to coach him into playing a more conservative game. Injuries can happen to anybody, but the odds go way up on runs like that.

  10. damn shame.. All year its been in my head how much Wentzs/Eagles season was a lot like the Carrs/Raiders season last year. Well, now it really seems they are the same. They have to be devastated. I blame Matt McGloin

  11. And Carr was “reckless” last year, who can forget him flipping over defenders for a 1st down vs the Saints? Carr is very passive this season, and it really shows, he isn’t the same guy, hopefully for the Eagles, Wentz will be

  12. Wentz needs to see Russell Wilson or Dak Prescott. Both are mobile running QBs that know when to go down or slide. RG3 never learned how to slide and it cost him his career, Wentz could be next the way he plays.

  13. Fortunately the list of QB’s that have torn their ACL’s and still went on to have a solid career is pretty decent. Carson Palmer, Philip Rivers…

  14. That sucks. I wish Wentz nothing but the best. He was having a helluva season, and you never want to see somebody – anybody – end their season this way. Wentz is a great player and a great person, and in many ways one of the best things in today’s NFL.

    And this is coming from a Vikings fan too.

  15. If I was an Eagles fan I wouldn’t panic yet. People forget Foles was a quality QB for the Eagles before Chip came in and dismantled the team thereby ruining any chance Foles had to continue making a name for himself. I’d say he’s one of the most underrated QBs in the league even for a backup

  16. Too bad. Nice kid and the leader of that team. Makes the long and relatively healthy careers of Brady, Brees and Rivers so much more amazing. Hope for a speedy recovery for Wentz.

  17. Well hopefully it’s not as bad as it sounds. Vikings lose today but still wanna troll eagles articles. It does help that watching keenum finally play a good defense he wet the bed and couldnt handle it. Couldnt beat the panthers and was very sloppy with 3 turnovers. I’m more worried about the rams, saints n panthers. Keenum has had only 2 impressive games this season. Vs Tampa and vs skins. Meh. . . .

  18. Really sucks for eagles fans, and just football fans in general. At least the team is built well so that they can remain competitive in the post season. Best of luck

    – Niner fan

  19. Injuries are ruining the league, How can any fan get truly excited when on any play the season will end? It’s hitting almost every team now. It’s msking it unwatchable. How many starters are still left on the Texans?

  20. Damn hate to see him get hurt,Eagles still a good team and can make a good play-off run. And yes I’m a Vikes fan. Get well soon 1 1 Skol.

    If McCarthy can do it with Hundley, then Pederson can do it with Foles

    10 6 Rate This

    Is McCarthy really “doing it” with Hundley? Theyre something like 3-5 with Hundley with wins over the lowly bears, buccs and an overtime win over the winless browns. I wouldn’t agree that McCarthy or hundley is “doing it”.

  22. If they lose more games than they win over to close out the season, then it’s over and their season ended today. Foles is decent, but if they are going to get to the SB, he better summon that one awesome year he had. This feels a lot like the Carr situation last year, and that sucked.

  23. And just like when the eagles win….nothing really has changed in your life with wentz getting hurt….bummer for him but does not really effect you at all…he still gets paid and you still have to go to work tomorrow, well maybe, but you get my point….dont be weirdos about the eagles.

  24. “They’ve only lost their top QB, try losing your top 2 QBs….SKOL”

    Only one Viking fan on here, from multiple Vikings fan posts, was sympathetic. The rest represented what they always represent – that they hope beyond hope that this is the gift year for their team, and any other team’s major injury will make them happy.

    Vikings top QB is far from Wentz ability, probably even below Foles.

    I hope Wentz is ok, and if not, can make a full recovery. It’s much more fun to see healthy teams where the best teams are winning.

  25. When I saw (and heard) that collision live, I did not think ‘torn ACL’. Seemed more like a broken bone type of hit. Either way sucks for the team and fans. This was the best team they’ve had since the 2004 team when TO was unstoppable.

    It was 1st down from the two, throw the ball away!

  27. Don’t get me wrong, but he stayed an additional 4 more plays and then walked into the locker room on his own. If he had torn the ACL, I don’t see how he could’ve walked on his own.

  28. Tough break for the Eagles they have had a nice season going. But plenty of players have come back from this type injury. Get well soon Carson.

    )))))))))))))))))
    He was playing when the Vikings beat the Rams 24-7. Derp.

  30. Who cares because Winz is just another one and done QB that we have seen so many times in the past. After a good season, he’s gone and another draft QB comes along to take his place. I.e., RG3&13

    Vikings and Keenum

  32. I blame the coach. With such a good arsenal of running backs, why would you allow your QB to try to run it in? I get it during the playoffs, but why risk so much for 1 touchdown? Just bad coaching IMO.

  33. As a Vikings fan I can sympathy with Eagles fans. Both are teams have yet to win a Superbowl, and it seems like year after year injuries ruin the chances of our respective teams. All is not lost. Your team is very good, You can with a backup QB. We are doing it for the most part.

  34. He was playing when the Vikings beat the Rams 24-7. Derp.

    4 3 Rate

    280 yards and 1 td? You consider that impressive? Whoa they should just stop the mvp voting n give it straight to keenum after that performance.

  35. @ Giants and home against the Raiders are still likely wins for the Eagles. The Eagles now have the tiebreaker over the Vikings. If it’s not a torn ACL that gives Wentz 5 weeks to recover for a playoff home game. Now all signs point to a significant injury but unless it’s season ending he has a chance to be back in time.

  36. No way he sits this out. He will play in post season. It is entirely possible to play with a torn ACL (Phillip Rivers did it). Of course it first has to be determined if there a chance to do any further damage. If there isn’t then it is possible.

    In the days before we had these phenomenal microscopic surgeries – The Mickey Mantle’s, Bobby Orr’s, Joe Namath’s played their entire careers w/torn ACL’s.

    Don’t count Wentz out just yet

    ———————————————————————————-

    There is a 40 year old QB known as the GOAT that had taken over for a Franchise QB in Bledsoe late in a season (this century)……

  38. Eagles fan here. Not a good day. But not giving up. Need to win 2 of last 3 to get #1. All bets are off when the playoffs start. Reason why they ponied up for RBs and WRs and Defense. Gotta go to the drawing board and figure it all out.

    That, and get Kap for the backup. Last thing I want to see – nonsense aside, he’s more qualified than Nate Sudfeld to be backup.

  39. Once again the Rams have accomplished what they set out to do every game: injure at least one star on the opposing team and knock him out for the season.

  40. Everyone getting on the band wagon that he should not be so reckless and should not be running. I bet this is the same people that get upset about hits on QB’s being called and saying let them play ball do not make it flag football. He is a football player and very good player at that so let him play. And as a LONG time Cowboy fan I want to wish Wentz a good report and a quick recovery

  41. As A Cowboys Fan and an Iggles hater – I am disappointed because this rivalry for the next 10 years is going to be outstanding. This is why things are never as bad as they seem or as great as they appear. A football season is of course a marathon and you just have to be playing hot at the end and be somewhat injury free at that time. The Cowboys most likely will run the table and finish 10-6 but unfortunately will miss the playoffs. Need a lot of help and it doesn’t look like they are going to get any – great thing we have a young squad that will continue to improve and add another solid draft and they will be the favorite in 2018.

  42. Don’t get me wrong, but he stayed an additional 4 more plays and then walked into the locker room on his own. If he had torn the ACL, I don’t see how he could’ve walked on his own.

    =========================================================
    You don’t know how ACL tears work. You can have a partial tear and lose stability in the knee or a complete tear and lose functionality (usually these do more damage to the surrounding ligaments, cartilage or in Miller’s case even damage to the veins and arteries). Lot’s of guys walk around with partial tears and that’s where a “non-contact” injury occurs. Google “Terrible Triad” for the gruesome stuff. It’s not incomprehensible that he had a partial tear, was steadily losing stability and walked off into the locker room where the team told him he was done.

    KARMA! For all the years you made fun of RGIII after his injury!!!

    WHAT??? I never heard any such thing. In fact, the only talk between my fellow Eagles fans and me was that we blamed the coach for ruining RGIII by continuing to play him while he was obviously hurt.

  44. Everyone keeps talking about the Eagles defense…….what defense??? The defense only looks good against horrible teams! One and done for the Eagles!

  45. Reality has landed in Philthydelphia – it was disgusting how the head coach did not control his QB and get it through his thick and arrogant skull that the quickest way out of the NFL is to be foolish. The Great Gimmick in Washington had a similar personality trait of selfishness over team.

    Enjoy, Philthy fans. The party is over.
