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.
