The surgery was performed by Dr. James Bradley, a Pittsburgh-based orthopedic knee specialist, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen.

The typical recovery timetable for an NFL player with a torn ACL is nine to 12 months.

Two days after Wentz suffered the depressing injury in Los Angeles, he was at the Eagles' practice facility Tuesday helping Nick Foles game plan for the Giants, even though it was the players' day off (see story).

While Wentz recovers, the Eagles anticipate he'll put on his "coaching hat" and do what he can to assist the offense.
