Eagles' Carson Wentz Vows To Return From Injury 'Stronger Than Ever'

Eagles' Carson Wentz Vows To Return From Injury 'Stronger Than Ever'

Carson Wentz's National Football League season came to an end with an ACL injury Sunday, but that isn't stopping him from trusting that God has a ideal plan.

Carson Wentz did indeed tear his left ACL.

"Good for us that we have a backup quarterback that's done that", Eagle offensive coordinator Frank Reich said. I hate it for Carson Wentz.

That's because Foles ended up having what Reich called a "freakish" season. "But at the same time, it's been the next-man-up mentality, and that's how we approach it this week".

Wentz was a favorite in the NFL MVP race during a breakout sophomore season.

Asked about Wentz's mood, Pederson said: "He's excited". But you know what, the reason we went out and got Nick Foles was for reasons like this and situations like this. Ever since that night in January 2014, the Eagles have been looking to get back to the postseason. "So that right there is a great step in the right direction". The touchdown was nullified by a penalty, but Wentz stayed in the game and tossed a TD pass to Alshon Jeffery four plays later. For now, we've got an 11-2 team, a possible first round bye and home-field advantage in throughout the playoffs, a suffocating defense and a capable run game.

The Eagles have overcome several key injuries and now have to move forward without their most indispensable player. "I spent a lot of time with him, as a rookie".

Let's travel all the way back to October 6, 2013, when the Eagles were in North Jersey to take on the New York Giants. Wentz threw six touchdown passes outside the pocket, tied for most in the NFL.

And head coach Doug Pederson, who served as Foles' position coach in Philadelphia in 2012, has been steadfast since Wentz's injury in his praise of the first-year father who's now at the helm of his offense. He is 20-17 as a starter, including playoffs. Now at the helm, Foles will look to finish what he started in 2013, and just remember, Foles left the field then with a lead.

"My confidence is extremely high in Nick", Pederson said.

Coaches and management have been vocal about adding players who fit the team's locker room dynamic and that undoubtedly played a role in the addition of Braman. Nick's a highly intelligent football player. I love seeing Carson from afar - I mean I wanted - being his teammates and helping him. This is our DNA, this is what we've built this upon, so let's just go in there and play ball'.

"I feel comfortable in this offense", Foles said.

That was just the start of what would be a Pro Bowl season for the second-year quarterback out of Arizona. In future games, a bit less of the starting RDE forgetting how to play the run would be helpful in that regard.
