Eagles QB Wentz out for Saints matchup

In a technical formality Friday, the Philadelphia Eagles officially declared quarterback Carson Wentz “out” for their Sunday divisional playoff matchup with the New Orleans Saints.Wentz sustained a stress injury in his back on Dec. 9 against the Dallas Cowboys and has not played since — sitting out the Eagles’ final three regular-season games and their 16-15 wild-card win over the Chicago Bears last weekend.The team has not placed Wentz on injured reserve, leading to the need to declare him inactive each week.Nick Foles, who led the Eagles to the Super Bowl title last year as Wentz sat out the playoffs due to a torn anterior cruciate ligament, has thrived in Wentz’s absence again over the past month.Foles led Philadelphia to wins over the Los Angeles Rams, the Houston Texans and the Washington Redskins to close out the regular season and lift the team into the playoffs at 9-7. He then guided the Eagles on the winning drive Sunday at Chicago, hitting Golden Tate for a 2-yard touchdown with 56 seconds left.
