Washington Commanders QB Carson Wentz suffered a fractured finger on his throwing hand in the team’s win over the Bears, as per Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo.
Wentz is headed to Los Angeles to see a hand specialist to determine the next step. His availability moving forward is up in the air.
Wentz has played poorly this season and it wouldn’t be surprising if Commanders Head Coach Ron Rivera is actually glad to have a reason to see how his team looks with another QB on the field.
Rivera said this week that quarterback is the reason the Commanders are in last place, although he later said that wasn’t intended to be a shot at Wentz, and lashed out at reporters after Thursday night’s game when questioned about whether he really wanted Wentz.
