Los Angeles Rams: 4 predictions for Week 15 against the Eagles

There has now been clarity on the entire situation as a recent CT scan has revealed that he's dealing with a fractured vertebrae, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

As if this season hasn't already been insane enough for the Philadelphia Eagles, fans received quite the surprising news on Wednesday that Carson Wentz may not only miss Sunday night's game against the Los Angeles Rams, but could even be shut down for the remainder of 2018.

Eagles coach Doug Pederson said Wentz would sit out Wednesday's practice with back "soreness" and "tightness" and would not commit to Wentz playing Sunday against the Rams. However, the expected recovery time is around three months.

Wentz had initially been listed as questionable before he was downgraded to doubtful on Friday afternoon.

With the Christmas holiday almost upon us, the Los Angeles Rams will look to finish the month of December with a flurry.

Pederson added that Wentz's injury was not game-related and he will be re-evaluated on a day-to-day basis.

Regardless of his injury designation, it makes little sense to throw Wentz onto the field against a tough Rams defense.

After taking over as Philadelphia's quarterback previous year when Wentz tore his ACL in Week 14, Foles and the Eagles went 6-1 on their way to the franchise's first Super Bowl victory.
