Eagles' Wentz has torn ACL, will miss rest of season

With Carson Wentz officially out for the year, the Eagles will proceed with Nick Foles and Nate Sudfeld as the options at quarterback. Wentz was hurt late in the third quarter Sunday at Los Angeles. "This has been a resilient football team all season long".

Those questions were largely unanswered in a rookie year where he threw just 16 touchdowns and 14 interceptions as an Eagles team low of weapons on offense limped to a 7-9 record.

Foles led the Eagles to a comeback victory over the Rams and made the 2013 Pro Bowl during his first run with the team.

An airstrike on the Gaza strip
Such rockets are generally fired by fringe Islamist groups but Israel holds Hamas responsible for any fire from the territory. The strikes came hours after Israel's missile defense system intercepted two rockets fired from Gaza .

"Wiz is doing good", Pederson said. He replaced an injured Michael Vick in 2013 and led the Eagles to an NFC East title during Chip Kelly's first season as coach. He's struggled since that campaign, however, and has only attempted a total of 69 passes over the last two seasons. The Eagles lost at home to New Orleans in the playoffs.

For the Wentz-less Eagles to be legitimate Super Bowl contenders, the defense may require more game-winning performances, while Ajayi, Blount and backfield mates Corey Clement and Kenjon Barner will need to become the focal point in what should now be a ball control attack with Foles asked to do as little as possible. Foles spent a year with the Rams, a season with the Chiefs and returned to Philadelphia as a free agent this season.

Philadelphia now has two healthy quarterbacks on their roster with Foles and Nate Sudfeld, who is in his second year in the league out of Indiana. Pederson said he hasn't spoken to personnel boss Howie Roseman about adding a third quarterback yet.
