Carson Wentz is Officially Selected to the 2018 Pro Bowl
Despite a season-ending torn ACL injury, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz has officially been selected to the 2018 Pro Bowl.
Prior to his injury, Wentz was leading all players with an overall tally of 562,958 votes as of a week before voting was final. It's Wentz's first selection in just his second season and had he been healthy enough to potentially play in the game, he would've been the starter in the NFL's all-star game, according to a press release from the league.
Wentz's roster spot for the game will likely be replaced with NFC alternate at quarterback, Los Angeles Rams Jared Goff. However, Wentz missing the game due to injury doesn't take away the distinction as a 'Pro-Bowler.'
The Pro Bowl will be in Orlando, FL on January 28th. The game will air at 3 p.m. on January 28th on both ESPN and ABC.
Congrats to Carson Wentz on his first Pro-Bowl selection!
