Eagles Place Carson Wentz On IR

The Eagles have officially placed quarterback Carson Wentz on injured reserve. This was the expected outcome after the Eagles learned that Wentz suffered a torn ACL. Carson Wentz/Doug Pederson (vertical)

For now, Nick Foles will take over at quarterback with Nate Sudfeld as his backup. Despite some calls for the Eagles to consider the likes of Colin Kaepernick and Tony Romo, it doesn’t appear that they’ll make a splashy signing. In fact, they might not add anyone to the QB depth chart. In the 48 hours that have passed since Wentz’s injury, the team has not scheduled a signal caller for a workout.

The Eagles are a mortal lock for a first-round bye and have a high probability of claiming the top seed in the NFC, but they no longer seem quite as fearsome without the former No. 2 overall pick under center. We’ll get a better idea of what Foles is capable of when the Eagles face the Giants on Sunday.

    They desperately need to sign a backup QB, since there’s only Foles who has had injuries and then a practice squad developmental guy. I’m surprised they haven’t signed McGloin yet, yeah he’s no superstar but knows the playbook from his time in camp and has won games in this league.
