This is certainly not what we want to hear prior to playing the 11-2 Rams.
Later on Wednesday morning, NFL Insider Ian Rapoport tweeted that Carson Wentz may not even play for the rest of the season:
#Eagles QB Carson Wentz, dealing with a back issue, is not expected to play this week, sources say. Depending on the result, given the time of year, Wentz may not play again in 2018. The team is still gathering info on his health.

If this is indeed true, Nick Foles will regain duties as quarterback … again.
