Carson Wentz suffered some scary concussion symptoms during this weekend’s Eagles-Seahawks playoff game.
On Sunday, Wentz was forced to leave the game after Jadeveon Clowney delivered a hit to the back of his head.
After the hit, Wentz reportedly had loss of memory and couldn’t sit straight which led the team to put him in the concussion protocol.
According to sources close to the situation, Wentz had a brief loss of memory on the sideline. He couldn’t remember what happened or who the Eagles played the week before. While inside the blue medical tent, Wentz also had a little bit of trouble sitting in a stationary position.
Initially, when he came off the field, Wentz told Josh McCown that he wasn’t feeling right. That’s when the medical staff took him inside the blue tent on the sideline for further evaluation.
The NFL is currently investigating whether the hit on Wentz was dirty but Clowney insists that it was a “bang-bang play.
NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported the league is reviewing defensive end Jadeveon Clowney’s hit on Wentz from this past Sunday, noting that a suspension isn’t expected but a fine is possible.
Eagles left tackle Jason Peters said he told Clowney afterward the hit was dirty, per ESPN.
“It was a bang-bang play,” Clowney said. “I don’t intend to hurt anybody in this league, let me just put that out there. I’ve been down the injury road; it’s not fun. My intention was not to hurt him. I was just playing fast.”
