Carson Wentz out indefinitely with a foot injury: How it impacts the Eagles
According to Adam Schefter, not even a week into training camp, former Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz has suffered a foot injury that has left him out indefinitely. This injury has severe implications for the Philadelphia Eagles, who acquired a potential first-round pick from the Colts for Wentz based on how much he plays. Carson said he felt a “twinge” when suffering the injury, and the team hopes and believes it’s a minor injury.
If Carson Wentz plays 75% of the snaps this season or 70% of snaps and a playoff berth, the Eagles receive a first-round pick. If Wentz doesn’t, it’s a second-round pick. Losing out on that first-round pick could be a brutal blow for the Eagles, who could use the selection in trade negotiations or bolster their roster early in the 2022 Draft.
Indianapolis placed the stipulations on the pick for exactly this scenario. Wentz has a long list of injuries he’s suffered throughout his career, including his back, ACL, a severe concussion, and wrist. Meanwhile, for the Eagles, they are going through some of their own training camp injuries. Isaac Seumalo is week-to-week, while Jalen Reagor is dealing with a lower-body injury.
