Carson Wentz may have more friends in unfriendly jerseys than he thought.
After the second-year quarterback tore his ACL against the Rams on Sunday, a flock of current and former NFL players took to social media to send their well wishes.
There were current, and former Eagles.

Praying for my guy @cj_wentz ! Hoping everything is alright.

There was Jordan Matthews, who was one of Wentz’s best friends last season. Matthews was traded to the Bills during training camp, and Wentz drove Matthews to the airport.

Then there were guys who make their living chasing Wentz, and other quarterbacks, around.
These injuries are out of control this season. Feeling for you @cj_wentz. Wishing you all the best brother!!

There were fellow quarterbacks who share Wentz’s craft of making impressive plays the evade defenders, including Deshaun Watson, who is overcoming his own ACL injury. Watson went down during a practice in early November.
Tough to hear the news on @cj_wentz man! Like you told me, God got you man and you will come back from this stronger! Prayers up my dude! 💯

God has great things in store for you @CJ_Wentz 🙏🏾🙏🏾

And, as with most Twitter-related events, there will always be Joel Embiid.
