    What Carson Wentz's Injury May Mean for Dallas

    NBC 5's Pat Doney talks about what the loss of Carson Wentz means to Philadelphia and what that may also mean for the Cowboys in the Week 17 match-up with the Eagles. (Published Monday, Dec. 11, 2017)

    Eagles coach Doug Pederson has confirmed that star quarterback Carson Wentz has a torn left ACL and will miss rest of the season and playoffs.

    Wentz, a favorite in the NFL MVP race, had an MRI on Monday that confirmed the severity of the injury. Wentz was hurt late in the third quarter at Los Angeles.

    Backup Nick Foles rallied the Eagles (11-2) to a win that secured the NFC East title and put them in first place in the conference with three games remaining.

    The Eagles have overcome several key injuries and now have to move forward without their most indispensable player.
