Quarterback Carson Wentz had to exit Sunday’s loss to the Rams after his right ankle got rolled up on when defensive tackle Aaron Donald hit him in the fourth quarter.

But apparently, Wentz is dealing with another issue.

Per Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, Wentz suffered sprains to both ankles and is undergoing further testing on Monday to determine the severity of both injuries.

The quarterback said after Sunday’s game that he didn’t think his ankle was broken. Wentz added that he’d look to do everything possible to be available for next week’s game against the Titans.

Backup Jacob Eason played the last two drives on Sunday in Wentz’s absence, throwing an interception to cornerback Jalen Ramsey.

Wentz missed a few weeks of training camp when he had surgery on his left foot. And then he missed a few days of practice while on the COVID-19 list for being a close contact of someone who had tested positive.

But Wentz was able to start in Week One and Week Two. Through two games, he’s completed 65.2 percent of his passes for 498 yards with three touchdowns and one interception. He’s also been sacked six times.

    Good thing the media has been praising Ballard as a GM for so long.


    If this guy keeps missing games he will be in Isaiah Wynn territory

  2. I think it may be time for Mr. Wentz to find a different line of work, this whole football thing is not working out for him.

  3. No wonder the Colts brokered the safeguard of the pick turning into a 2 if he didn’t reach a specific snap threshold. It’s also no wonder both teams agreed to it. The Eagles know all too well what’s up with Wentz.

    The elephant in the room: Is Wentz even worth a 2 if he’s constantly hobbled, but also trying crazy stuff like what he did yesterday (not an unusual incident), which got him injured?

    2 games, 6 sacks, 20 QB hits! Where is the highly praised O-lime?


    They’re twisting and turning all over the place to try and protect him as he extends plays unnecessarily, and they’re trying desperately to maintain their blocks without holding while he holds on to the ball too long. And they’re getting injured in the process.

  5. Ok, I now finally admit he’s injury-prone. Bud Grant always said his players’ most important talent was staying healthy.

  6. 3 other starters went down and all you talk about is running QBs getting hurt. It’s the pocket guys that get hurt.

  7. No one wanted to listen why Philly had enough of him. Watching him hold onto the ball as long as he does and show up on the weekly injury report is all too familiar. Sorry Colts fans, but this is your norm as long as he’s wearing the horseshoe.

    Another Sam Bradford, just bigger. He’s a bum now.

    Bradford at least had some arm talent when he played

  9. The offensive line is the problem. How is he to do his job when defenders are on top of him immediately after the ball is snapped? Fix the O-line and Wentz will be good.

  10. I’m no Carson “anti vaxxer” Wentz fan but some people are a little hard on him today. Let’s see you get hit by Aaron Donald and see how you feel afterwards
