Quarterback Carson Wentz had to give up Sunday’s loss to the Rams after his right ankle curled when defensive tackle Aaron Donald hit him in the fourth quarter.

But apparently Wentz faces another problem.

According to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, Wentz sustained sprains to both ankles and is undergoing additional testing on Monday to determine the severity of the two injuries.

The quarterback said after Sunday’s game he didn’t think his ankle was broken. Wentz added that he would look to do everything possible to be available for next week’s game against the Titans.

Substitute Jacob Eason played the last two records on Sunday in Wentz’s absence, throwing an interception on cornerback Jalen Ramsey.

Wentz missed a few weeks of training camp when he underwent surgery on his left foot. And then he missed a few days of training while on the COVID-19 list for being in close contact with someone who had tested positive.

But Wentz was able to start the first and second week. In two games, he completed 65.2% of his passes for 498 yards with three touchdowns and one interception. He has also been sacked six times.
