4:34 am
would need time off the field to rest that knee, and he would need physical therapy. the biggest concern right now is that wentz could have torn his acl. that would be the worst case scenario. it will take an mri to confirm that. and that won't take place until later today. what you're looking at is the moment of impact when wentz sustained the injury. late third quarter, fans were devastated that wentz, who led the team to 11 wins this season was hurt. there was a silence at xfinity live as he made his way off the field last night. for most of us, a torn acl isn't the end of the world. for wentz, this could be a sidelining injury that would keep him off the field for months. we found a knee specialist to give more perspective. listen to what he had to say about the importance of the acl for an athlete like carson wentz. >> you can function without the acl. however, because what it does in stabilizing, it helps you to do quick lateral movements such as pivoting. for an elite-level athlete, that's what they need to protect

themselves inside general and to move around the field in an effective manner. >> reporter: dr. michael yang is not wentz's doctor, but he is a knee specialist. he said it could take from three is to six months to recover from surgery if he did, in fact, tear his acl. coming up, how fans are reacting to this devastating news, as well. reporting live outside the linc, pamela osborne, nbc10 news. >> see you soon. thanks. the longtime radio voice of the eagles' merrill reece twiced, "an incredible win. dramatic and memorable, but at a price is that absolutely devastating." the reference to carson wentz's injury. and doug peterson is looking ahead. >> if he can't go, obviously got a lot of confidence in nick. you know, i office staff when we draft -- i was on staff when we drafted him. liked him. he's played a ton of games. he's a proven winner in the league. got a lot of confidence in nick as does he in our offense and
4:36 am
what we're doing. we move forward. >> peterson says his players have "all the confidence in the wor world" in nick foles as quarterback. as for foles, he entered the game in los angeles in the third quarter. he took control of the eagles' offense and did not waver. the six-year veteran led the birds down the field. helping them retake the lead with the late field goal before eating up a lot of clock. foles' biggest play was this pass to wide receiver nelson aguil aguilar. that pretty much sealed the game. huge third down, and a final, desperate play by the rams blew up in their faces with the eagles scoring with no time left on the clock. walking in with the touchdown. after the game, foles talked about how he's ready to step up when his name is called. >> i'm absolutely ready. that's why i'm here. i'm ready to go. prepare every day. work every day. so i'm ready to go if need be. means a lot to the team. means a lot to me.
