Next man up. That's this 2017 Philadelphia Eagles team's motto.
So it's Nick Foles' turn at quarterback now that Carson Wentz has been lost for the season. The man who would follow in Foles' footsteps? That would be Nate Sudfeld.
The quarterbacks on this team are extremely close.
"They’re honestly like brothers to me," Sudfeld told reporters on Thursday.
Sudfeld also relayed a rather funny FaceTime call he and Foles received from Wentz right after his surgery to repair his torn ACL.
“He was pretty loopy after the anesthesia. He was trying to figure out the new plays we put in," Sudfeld said.
There wasn't a whole lot of small talk, apparently. Wentz is in positive spirits, Sudfeld said, as also seen in his video message to fans.
Of course Carson wanted to talk football.
“The first question from Wentz, ‘so what’s this new play I saw in the emails?’ I was like, ‘you sure you want to know right now?” Sudfeld said.
“Do you expect anything less from Carson? He was ordering a burger at the same time.”
“He was loopy but he was good. Classic Carson."
Eagles fans are going to miss Classic Carson on the field the rest of the season, sadly.
