Philly fans have a love affair with blue-collar heroes — Moses Malone, Len Dykstra, Brian Dawkins are just some of them.
Add Eagles quarterbaack Carson Wentz!
Wentz was forced out of last night’s Giants game in the third quarter to be checked for a concussion.
Wentz may have landed on his head after taking a hit from Giants defensive end Olivier Vernon late in the third quarter. Vernon was flagged for roughing the passer, and the call extended a drive that otherwise may have ended out of field goal range.
Chase Daniel replaced Wentz, who talked with trainers and an independent neurologist on the sideline. The Eagles kept the drive going but ended up getting stopped inside the 2-yard line on downs. Wentz returned on the next Eagles’ possession.
