Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz had his right hand x-rayed during Sunday’s loss to the Seahawks and head coach Doug Pederson said at his postgame press conference that he’d go for further tests.

On Monday, Pederson provided an update on the quarterback’s condition. Pederson said at a press conference that Wentz has “a little bruise” on his throwing hand.

Pederson said that Wentz is day-to-day, but is expected to practice this week and play against the Dolphins next Sunday.

The injury would have been a handy excuse for Wentz to use as explanation for a poor game, but the quarterback didn’t go that route. He said after the 17-9 loss that the injury didn’t affect his play, which means the Eagles have a lot to do to get their offense on track this week.

  1. Offense is too complicated for Wentz, Not playing comfortable Pederson needs to scale back the offense and get him on track.

  2. they didn’t trade the wrong qb, foles has been just as bad as wentz. the jags just soaked all that money into foles so they benched Minshew and his winning ways…foles is playing like qb he has always been outside of the magic he caught for 2 yrs

  3. Wentz wouldn’t have bruised his hand had he not fumbled to begin with. That fumble was horrible. I have no idea what he thought he was going to accomplish on that play. Throw it away or tuck it and take the sack. Stop expecting your teammates to do the impossible.

    And, if your receiver gets seperation: hit him in the numbers or at least the opposite side of the defender. Don’t make your receiver go back into the defender. This isn’t rocket science and Wentz needs to work on his accuracy big time!

  4. His reputation, on the other hand, took a big bruise…

    No difference in his play before or after he “bruised” his hand…

    Foles took them to the SuperBowl…Wentz is taking them to the Place Where Dreams Die.

  5. Eagles are a mess. They are nauseating to watch, the receivers are terrible. A very average team at best. True they have had a lot of injuries, but their issues run much deeper than that.

    The season is summed up best yesterday when the defense huddles together for a team celebration picture when they are down 14 points in the 4th QTR. Oh how I wish we still had Brian Dawkins to knock some sense into the social media darlings who need constant validation.

  6. They didn’t trade Foles. He was an UFA and signed with Jax.

    This is correct. Wentz signed a four-year extension to have a six years and $154 million. Foles signed a four-year, $88 million contract with the Jags. So the correct statement should be “the Eagles paid the wrong guy”.

  7. “… the Eagles have a lot to do to get their offense on track this week.”

    playing the Fins, NY and the Redskins will help everything get back on track in Philly ….

  8. Seems to me the real issue is that after the Super Bowl win the Eagles lost their offensive coordinator and their QB coach — the Eagles offense hasn’t looked as creative, efficient or well game-planned since.

  9. Wentz isn’t playing well, but this entire Eagles offense is such a mess. Playcalling, QB, WR, OL, RB, nobody is doing well.

    ********
    Wrong same people that win with foles

  11. Offense is too complicated? Wentz can barely muster 200 yard passing average. He’s slightly above with like 6 games passing for 170 and a paltry TD if he can manage one. This isn’t Pederson. We KNOW Pederson has balls. Wentz plays like a guy who cashed in, time to take it easy. Does he look prepared out there? This look like a guy putting in Peyton Manning hours to anyone?

    Sure as hell doesn’t to me.
