Carson Wentz questionable for Philadelphia Eagles at Los Angeles Rams

Carson Wentz questionable for Philadelphia Eagles at Los Angeles Rams

With rest, the fracture is likely to heal on its own, but the Eagles will have Wentz undergo further evaluations to determine his playing status. Foles really struggled in the first two games of the season while filling in for Wentz, throwing just one touchdown and one interception, averaging a measly 5.5 yards per attempt.

A source told Schefter that the team "will know more later today". The quarterback was still expected to miss Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Rams prior to his diagnosis.

The talk in the City of Brotherly Love revolves around the health of Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz. "Wentz unlikely to play Sunday night vs. Rams", Schefter tweeted. Eagles coach Doug Pederson said Friday that Wentz will travel to L.A. with the team, and will be officially designated as questionable for the game.

This isn't the first time this season that Wentz has appeared on the injury report because of his back.

The former Pro Bowl selection was a limited participant twice on consecutive Wednesdays while dealing with his previous back injury.

Backup quarterback Nick Foles, who led the Eagles through the postseason and to a championship last season, would start if Wentz can't play Sunday. He helped lead the Eagles to a win over the Rams after Wentz tore his ACL in the third quarter past year and now he'll get another chance to beat his former team.

Philadelphia faces a must-win scenario with three games remaining.
