The Eagles fear that Wentz has a torn ACL, a team source confirmed. Wentz will have an MRI on Monday.

ESPN's Adam Schefter first reported the possibility of a torn ACL.

A few plays before Wentz hit Alshon Jeffery for a two-yard touchdown pass on 4th-and-goal, he took a pretty hard shot as he dove into the end zone on a touchdown that was nullified by a penalty. 

After the drive, Wentz went to the sideline to be evaluated in the blue medical tent. He was then walked into the locker room and did not return.

Nick Foles began to warm up on the sideline and then replaced Wentz.

That touchdown pass to Jeffery was Wentz's fourth of the game and 33rd of the season. That broke the Eagles' franchise record for touchdown passes in a single season. It was set by Sonny Jurgenson in the 1961 season. 

Wentz has been having a tremendous season and his name is at the forefront of the NFL's MVP race.
