Carson Wentz has been ruled out of today's game against the Seahawks with a head injury. He took a helmet-to-helmet hit from Jadeveon Clowney, after which he headed into the medical tent. He was evidently not cleared to immediately return to the game, and Josh McCown is entering the game for the Philadelphia Eagles.

A journeyman quarterback, McCown is 40 years old. He appeared in three games this season but only had five pass attempts. The Eagles lured him back from retirement last offseason.

The Eagles have weathered the loss of Wentz before to go on a Super Bowl run with Nick Foles. Obviously, this is a different team than the one that did that.
