Carson Wentz was driven into the ground by Olivier Vernon in the third quarter of tonight’s Giants-Eagles game. Wentz’s head slammed into the ground, and Vernon was assessed a roughing the passer penalty. Wentz left the game and is presently undergoing further testing — presumably under the league’s concussion protocol — in the Eagles locker room. For the time being, he is being spelled by Chase Daniel.
UPDATE: Wentz cleared concussion protocol, and returned to the game for Philly.
