LOS ANGELES (AP) — Two sources familiar with the injury tell The Associated Press that doctors believe Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz has torn his left anterior cruciate ligament and will miss the rest of the season and playoffs.
Wentz needs an MRI to confirm the severity of the injury. Both people spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to release the information.
Wentz was hurt late in the third quarter of Philadelphia’s 43-35 comeback win at the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday. Backup Nick Foles rallied the Eagles to a win that secured the NFC East title.
Wentz was hit hard as he scrambled into the end zone on a play that was called back because of holding.
49ers cornerback burned, then benched

HOUSTON — Dontae Johnson was burned so often Sunday that he got benched.
In a 26-16 win over the Texans, the 49ers’ cornerback struggled to keep up with Pro Bowl wideout DeAndre Hopkins, who had 11 catches for 149 yards and two touchdowns.
After Hopkins beat Johnson and safety Adrian Colbert for a 29-yard score early in the third quarter, Johnson slammed his helmet to the ground and stood alone on the bench. On the next series, he was replaced by undrafted rookie Greg Mabin.
“I’ll chalk this one down as a performance that I would like to give back and redo it again,” Johnson said.
