On the day he found out his season was over, Carson Wentz has vowed to come back stronger than ever.
Wentz, who tore his ACL in the third quarter on Sunday afternoon, posted a video to his Twitter account on Monday night.
In the video, he admitted he is going through a tough time but is using his Christian faith to get get through it.
"If we got everything we wanted in life," Wentz said, "it would be a disaster."
Then, he had a message for his fans:
"I can promise to everybody, all my fans in the Philly area, in the North Dakota area, all across this country, that this will not stop me going forward. I will come back stronger than ever. I will use this as motivation. And I will be attacking it, this whole process as I recover.
"But at the end of the day, this year we still have something special. We just clinched the NFC East. That was Step 1 of our goals this season and we're just continuing on from there. I will be with the team along the way. I will be supporting them.
"I have the utmost confidence in Nick (Foles) and the coaching staff and everybody else that they'll step up. We've been plagued with injuries all year long and it's just been the next-man-up mentality and that's going to continue. Nick's going to to an amazing job leading this team and I'm going to be there to help."

Kevin Hart is one of the most well-known Philadelphia sports fans in the world.
He made a scene at the Super Bowl while showing support for the Eagles.
So it's no surprise when TMZ asked him about LeBron James and his 76ers, Hart lit up a bit, even going so far as to say he has already attempted to recruit him to Philly.
"I sent him $40. He didn't accept it," Hart said. "I really did try. I sent him 40 dollars and I said come to Philly."
"He said, 'kiss my ass!'"
"I don't think he's going anywhere," Hart added.
Probably not if $40 is the best we as a city have to offer.
The Philadelphia 76ers as a team, and Joel Embiid specifically, reminded the world last night that FS1's Colin Cowherd is quite often full of it when they won their 40th game of the season.
We wrote about this last night when Jojo poked fun at Cowherd for his preseason assertion that Sixers wouldn't sniff 40 wins. But today Cowherd held up his end of the preseason bet by rocking a No. 21 Sixers jersey during his The Herd show.
Cowherd's co-host Kristine Leahy posted video of the frequently wrong analyst admitting he'd lost and saying he'd own up to it, eventually.
"I'd love to have [Embiid] on this show anytime he wants," Cowherd said today. "I made a bet. I lost. I'm not going to welch."
But then he spoke about not being able to find a jersey that fit while Leahy was wearing one that would clearly fit him. They eventually found one and he put it on.
"They deserve love," Cowherd said.
Winning sure feels good. All kinds of winning.
