Eagles QB Wentz suffers knee injury
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz suffered a knee injury late in the third quarter of his team's clash against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday.
Wentz scrambled from the two-yard line before diving into the end zone. He was hit on his left knee by Rams linebacker Mark Barron. Wentz's apparent touchdown was then negated because of a holding penalty.
The second-year quarterback stayed in the game to throw a two-yard touchdown pass to Alshon Jeffery as the Eagles took a 31-28 lead. Wentz then walked to the locker room with a towel around his neck. The Eagles declared him out to start the fourth quarter.
The Rams scored to regain the lead on the ensuing possession and Nick Foles took over at quarterback trailing 35-31.
