Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz has a torn ACL in his left knee and will miss the remainder of the season and playoffs, coach Doug Pederson announced Monday.

The 24-year-old Wentz, who was expected to be an NFL MVP candidate this season, underwent an MRI exam on Monday morning after suffering the knee injury in Sunday's 43-35 victory over the Los Angeles Rams.

A huge blow for the Eagles! Backup quarterback Nicke Foles looked effective coming in against the Rams late, but still hasn't shown that he can be effective over a long term.
