He was ruled out with a left knee injury, and Fox sideline reporter Erin Andrews painted a bleak picture in a report on the broadcast.
Reaction from Eagles fans — and a couple players — was swift.
Here’s a sampling of the mood for Eagles fans after Wentz’s injury.

I don’t like how quickly they ruled him out. That can’t be good right?

The result of this game is meaningless, in comparison to the diagnosis of Carson Wentz.

Very sorry to hear about Carson Wentz’s knee injury. I root against him because I’m a Cowboys fan. But I did not want to see him get hurt. I wanted the Eagles to be at full strength.

Sports are consistently devastating to only Philadelphia. It’s nothing short of devastating. We will never be happy. Ever.
