Wentz was later escorted off the field due to a knee injury at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on December 10, 2017 in Los Angeles, California.

Wentz was injured when he took a big hit on a third-quarter touchdown run that was called back because of a penalty.

Wentz, who was seen wearing a brace on his knee after the game, tweeted his optimism for recovery after Sunday's game while congratulating the Eagles on clinching a first-place finish in the NFC East division, the franchise's first since 2013.

Prior to Week 14, the Los Angeles Rams had a strong feeling that Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles had the potential to turn into an offensive shootout, which was exactly the case.

The Eagles have overcome several key injuries and now have to move forward without their most indispensable player. He will nearly certainly miss all of the Eagles spring and early summer activities next offseason, with training camp and the start of the 2018 season being in jeopardy as well. "You never really know what's going to happen, but I didn't feel like he was going to hold us back in any way".


Before leaving the Rams game, Wentz managed to throw for 291 yards and four touchdowns on 23-of-41 completions.

A third-round pick by former Eagles coach Andy Reid in 2012, Foles in his second stint in Philadelphia. He tied an National Football League record with seven TD passes in a game at Oakland in November 2013 and went to the Pro Bowl, winning the offensive MVP award. Kelly traded Foles to St. Louis for Sam Bradford after the 2014 season.

"It sure can, heck yeah", Pederson said. You know, yeah, he is the quarterback of our football team, and each one of these guys that I mentioned is tough to replace. "So I feel comfortable doing that". Foles, who owns an 88.1 career passer rating represents a significant drop-off from Wentz who was having a breakout year in his second season.

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