Carson Wentz suffered hairline fracture in his ribs against Bucs


As if the Eagles didn’t have enough to be concerned about already, it turns out that rookie quarterback Carson Wentz suffered a hairline fracture in his ribs during Thurday’s preseason opener.

The NDSU product completed 50% of his 24 passes on Thursday, throwing for 89 yards and an interception.

Carson Wentz missed all of the team activities today due to rib soreness and was later taken for a CT scan. The result of which showed a hairline fracture. While an exact timescale for his return is unknown, The Eagles hope to see Wentz back in action before the end of the team’s preseason schedule.
