Carson Wentz (ACL) could reportedly be out 9-12 months for Eagles

The Eagles officially placed Carson Wentz on injured reserve Tuesday and used his roster spot to try to shore up a proud special teams unit that has been less consistent since special teams captain Chris Maragos went down for the season with a knee injury at Carolina on October 12.

For now, Foles can make it easier for the Eagles to have a chance to get to the Super Bowl. It can get a first-round bye with another win.

Foles said he's only anxious about beating the Giants, and not about the naysayers.

"Offensively, there's going to be some things that we'll probably change around just because Nick doesn't have some of the abilities of Carson when you talk about mobility and all of that", safety said. "That's what people are going to say. You never want to see this happen, but my job is to go out and lead this team and I'm fully confident in that". What I'm focused on is today. I love this offense. "Satan can't control us on the field, so he's going to try to attack us off the field, attacking us physically". I've overcome this. I've thrown touchdowns.' Or different looks, different plays.

The odds of success over the remainder of the regular season didn't change much for the Eagles as a result of the Wentz injury, per ESPN's FPI. This is the one that is the DNA of this team.

Pederson, Reich and the Eagles are rolling with Foles.

Challenges will come as Foles takes over a key responsibility for an 11-2 team, but he thinks he's ready for them. I hate it for the career, the season, I guess, that he's been having. He threw for 3,296 yards and set a franchise single-season record with an NFL-leading 33 touchdown passes while only tossing seven interceptions. A backup quarterback at this point in his career for a reason, no doubt. "I mean, that's insane".

So when Wentz got hurt, Reich added: "We didn't blink".

Foles hasn't had almost the same success since breaking his collarbone against Houston on November 2, 2014, ending his season.

Conversely, it's debatable how good Hoyer could have been had he not torn his ACL in his third start with the Browns in 2013.

To determine the most devastating sports injuries of 2017, 24/7 Wall St. reviewed injury data from the NBA, NFL, NHL, and Major League Baseball and determined which players' absences had the largest negative impact on their team both in terms of the skill level of the player and the time they have missed or will likely miss. If you thought Jay Ajayi was getting a lot of work before, just wait. "Even stepping into the game the other night, you're in the fourth quarter, you're on the road, it's a big game and you really just go back to your training and your experiences in life". You just know this guy's been successful. "But they all go together to create this moment in time".

The Eagles made it official Tuesday by placing Wentz on injured reserve, thus ending his season. Special teams has become an area of concern for the Eagles recently.

The Eagles were able to beat the Rams last Sunday, but punter Donnie Jones had a punt that was blocked and returned for a touchdown. But after a horse collar call on the kickoff and a defensive meltdown, the Saints kicked the game winning field goal, as time expired to top the Eagles 26-24.
