Wentz Drops to 4th Overall in Pro Bowl Voting Following ACL Injury
Carson Wentz, the star Philadelphia Eagles quarterback that was leading Pro Bowl voting for weeks, has now dropped into fourth place.
Wentz, following his week 11 injury against the Rams will not be able to participate in the Pro Bowl so voters have likely chosen to vote for other players who can actually play.
However, Wentz still has the most votes out of anyone in the entire NFC with 829,174 total votes according to a press release from NFL Communications.
The new leading vote getter is Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell. He has 855,539 votes. Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is second overall. Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown is third and after Wentz in fourth is Saints quarterback Drew Brees.
Wentz had successful surgery on his ACL on Dec. 13, and he is expected to be back in full playing form in about nine to 12 months.
For now, Wentz will be like the rest of us watching the Eagles try to make a deep run into the playoffs while also cheering on his alma mater in the NDSU Bison as they go to Frisco, TX for the FCS Championship game on Jan. 6.
The Pro Bowl will take place at 2pm on Jan. 28 and will be broadcast on both ESPN and ABC.
