Carson Wentz posts update on health after hit to head: 'It's the unfortunate part of this game'

Philadelphia Eagles starting quarterback Carson Wentz posted an update for fans on Instagram the day after he was knocked out of his team’s wild-card round matchup against the Seattle Seahawks. 

Wentz was removed from Sunday’s game, which Philadelphia ultimately lost 17-9, shortly after suffering a helmet-to-helmet hit by Jadeveon Clowney in the first quarter — though the Seahawks defender wasn’t penalized for the hit

On Monday, Wentz informed fans that he “will be just fine” in a post thanking fans for their “thoughts and prayers” after his injury. 

“So dang proud of this team and how we battled and overcame so much this season,” the quarterback began his message before addressing the play that caused him to be taken out of the game.

“Head injuries are a scary thing so I appreciate everybody’s thoughts and prayers,” he said. “Hate not being out there to finish it out with my guys because of a play like that, but it’s the unfortunate part of this game.”
