Carson Wentz gives Lane Johnson crap for play he got injured on

Carson Wentz gives Lane Johnson crap for play he got injured on

Carson Wentz seemingly got hurt on the play where he rushed for a touchdown against the Rams that was called back thanks to a holding penalty on Lane Johnson.

Thanks a lot, Lane! *Warning: the GIF of the hit is graphic.*

In a pretty interesting video shared to running back Kenjon Barner's Instagram page, you can hear Wentz giving Johnson the business about it after the Eagles' win.

"I ran in two touchdowns today and you took them both away," Wentz said.

"You got a lot of nerve coming at me like that," you can hear Johnson respond.

Check it out: 

There's definitely some laughter taking place, so it's unclear how much friendly ribbing is going on or if Wentz is actually upset. Judge for yourself.

It also makes you wonder what the team's policies on sharing behind-the-scenes footage of team-related stuff on social media is these days? I don't suspect this is something Wentz and Johnson particularly wanted to get out in the public eye.

I suppose it's good to see Wentz is in relatively positive spirits despite being lost for the season.

Ugh. A city's hope is now in the big hands of Nick Foles.

Is Joel Embiid actually over Rihanna?

Is Joel Embiid actually over Rihanna?

Joel Embiid is officially an All-Star.

Maybe Rihanna is now interested?

Even if so, sorry, RiRi … "The Process" has moved on.

In a postgame interview Thursday night with NBA on TNT's Kristen Ledlow, Embiid was asked about his old crush (a topic which resurfaced that evening).

Any words for the national audience, Mr. All-Star?

"She denied me back then, so why go with her again?" Embiid said with a smile after the Sixers' 89-80 win over the Celtics (see game story). "Might have to pass that and move on to the next one."

Ben Simmons wasn't so sure.

"Shoot for the stars," Simmons said to ESPN. "Shoot his shot."

So, anything else, JoJo?

"Trust the process," Embiid said.

Now that's an All-Star.

Watch Eric Lindros' heartfelt speech

Watch Eric Lindros' heartfelt speech

As the Flyers honored Eric Lindros on Thursday night, raising his iconic No. 88 to the Wells Fargo Center rafters, Paul Holmgren delivered a fitting salute to "Big E."

"You are back where you belong," the Flyers' president said during the pregame festivities. "This time, it's forever."

The crowd erupted before giving way to Lindros.

Just hours before his jersey retirement ceremony, the hockey Hall of Famer was taken aback by the calm before the storm.

"I just walked the concourse and this morning I went for a stroll to see all the shirts in the seats, it’s unbelievable," Lindros said. "This is one of those days that you take for the rest of your life. It's a special moment and you really feel lucky."

Then, Lindros was in awe when he took the podium.

"Wow, ha ha!" Lindros said as the fans roared. "This is crazy. Thank you, so much."

Lindros thanked his family, the organization and, of course, the fans.

Here was the touching finish to his speech, which you can watch in its entirety in the video above, along with the jersey being hoisted above the ice.

Flyers players are lucky to play in a city where the fans truly know the game of hockey, appreciate the little things and are of course rowdy, but also show heart. Like you showed the night that Mario Lemieux returned from his battle with cancer — a standing ovation, very classy and I won't forget it.

It's no secret that when I left Philadelphia, it was under less-than-ideal circumstances. I believe I'm here today, hockey aside, because of two people: my wife, Kina, and Paul Holmgren. Both, in their own ways, have taught me to move on, put in the past any differences of opinion, any hard feelings. It was time to remember the great moments I experienced here in Philadelphia, the friendships I have built in this great city and the respect I have for the fans of this team.
