  • I know my God is a powerful one’ QB Carson Wentz encourages fans with his faith after knee injury

Philadelphia Eagles coach Doug Pederson stood at the podium back at team headquarters Monday at noon and delivered the worst news possible, that franchise quarterback Carson Wentz had torn his left ACL on Sunday against the Rams and would be out for the rest of the season.

It's unclear what the Eagles will do at quarterback, but the job appears to belong to Nick Foles in the short term.

The court's verdict marked a defeat for Poroshenko, who has faced mounting criticism for his failure to uproot endemic corruption. Mr Saakashvili lost the Georgian presidency in 2013 but was appointed governor of the Odessa region of Ukraine two years...

"This has been a resilient football team all season long", Pederson said.

Eagles: Aside from Wentz, starting tight end Zach Ertz missed the game with a concussion.

"One of the main things I tried to do is explain to the team that Jeff Hostetler wasn't going to be the reason why we didn't succeed", Parcells said by phone Monday.

Egypt's UN Ambassador Amr Aboulatta said the USA decision would have "a grave, negative impact" on the peace process. Many protesters also decried the "weak reaction" of most Arab leaders to the controversial USA move.

"If there's ever an opportunity for me to rally the troops as the football coach, now might be the time", Pederson said.

"We still have something special", Wentz said. He stayed in the game, and threw a 3-yard touchdown pass to Alshon Jeffery four plays later to give the Eagles a short-lived 31-28 lead. Dr. James Andrews, in comments to ESPN's Chris Mortensen, said the timetable for return should be 9-12 months, and too many players want to rush that timetable. "Until I know more tomorrow on him, it's hard to say, but listen, there's a lot of leaders on that football team right now, and you saw it tonight". "That's part of the reason why we brought him up (off the practice squad) earlier in the year". He also has some of the escape-artist ability that has made Wentz so successful for Philadelphia this season - a skill in stark contrast to Foles' limited mobility. Those Eagles beat the Giants in the first round of the playoffs, then lost to New Orleans. "To the fans out there, you can't lose faith.

And it will be tough on me for a little bit", he said. They will be a heavy favorite even without Wentz.
