Giants QB Eli Manning can't help but to feel sorry for Eagles QB Carson Wentz, who is out for the rest of the season with a torn ACL.
Wentz left his game against the Rams on Sunday after a hard hit as he dove into the endzone. An MRI revealed a torn ACL, and despite the Eagles clinching the NFC East with the win in L.A., they lost their starter who was making a great case to be the league MVP this season.
Wentz's injury shocked everyone throughout the league, including a division rival in Manning.
"You never want to see a guy get injured and he's having a great year, he's playing well, the team's playing well and I feel for him," Manning told The Post's Paul Schwartz. "You never like to see another quarterback get injured, especially when they're having a great year."
Wentz improved tremendously from his rookie season, as he had 3,296 yards, 33 touchdowns, seven interceptions, and a 101.9 QBR this season.
His replacement will be former starter QB Nick Foles. The 28-year-old has spent limited time in four games this season, where he has completed 10-of-14 for 98 yards.
Giants CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie was once a teammate of Foles' during the 2011 and 2012 seasons. He knows exactly what the quarterback can bring to the field, and it won't be that steep of a drop off from Wentz.
"So I know what he can do," Rodgers-Cromartie said. "He's a good quarterback, I think the system is going to function just the same. I know he can get that ball down the field. He gets it out fast, he's got a big arm, he can make all the throws and he still got that running game behind him so it's gonna be tough."
