Per reports by @AdamSchefter and @RapSheet #Eagles QB Carson Wentz after multiple tests has a fractured vertebra. No surgery necessary and full recovery expected. Some believe playing may not risk further injury. Would think done for final 3 games. @SportsRadioWIP
Whether Wentz feels similarly confident in the Eagles' medical staff after they failed to find this fractured vertebrae in multiple tests earlier in the season is another question, but surely, the long-term interests of team and player align here as it is in the Eagles' best interest to have Wentz healthy and playing well for a very long time.

Carson Wentz has a fractured vertebra, revealed after the #Eagles quarterback underwent a series of tests, an NFL source said Thursday.
Wentz played well throughout this season, but did not quite reach the heights or consistency he did a year ago -- which is to be expected after a serious knee injury that kept him on the sideline for nearly 10 months.

It emerged earlier this week that Wentz was dealing with a back injury and could miss this coming Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Rams, but reports on Thursday indicated that scans showed Wentz has a fractured vertebrae in his back, which went unrecognized by scans conducted earlier in the season.

He started the first two games of this season as well, as Wentz continued to rehab before returning in Week 3.

Jordan Matthews, on Carson Wentz's back injury Eagles coach Doug Pederson said Wednesday that Wentz was experiencing "soreness" and "tightness" in his back and wouldn't practice.
Of course, Foles famously filled in for Wentz last season after the Eagles' starter went down with a torn ACL in a December game against the Rams, and led the team to its first Super Bowl.
This isn't the first time this season that Wentz has appeared on the team's injury report because of his back.
There will be a continued evaluation of his back to determine whether continuing to play this season would worsen the injury for the Philadelphia Eagles' starting quarterback.

The main storyline heading into this week was Wentz's return to Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum for the first time since the injury for a rematch against Jared Goff, who went first overall in the 2016 NFL draft, one slot ahead of Wentz.
This should quiet the conspiracy theorists, who think the Eagles manufactured an injury to give Carson PR cover so they could sit him for the rest of the season. — Sources: Eagles Wentz has fractured vertebra - via @ESPN App
