Carson Wentz Stayed In The Game For 4 Plays & Threw A TD Pass On His Torn ACL

Carson Wentz went down with what we now know was an ACL year during Sunday’s game against the LA Rams. Keyword, down – not out.

The Eagles star sophomore QB remained in the game for another possession, running four plays including a touchdown pass to WR Alshon Jefferey.

Here is that touchdown pass:

Wentz could be seen noticeably favoring the leg, trying to deliver the ball while inside the pocket despite the pressure without having to escape.

Depending on the severity of the tear, an athlete can still walk or run on an ACL injury, as the liniment simply restricts lateral movement and stabilization of the joint, playing no part in physically moving the leg.

That issue with stabilization was on display as Wentz’s knee awkwardly buckled backwards as he walked off the field following the injury.
