The Philadelphia Eagles have lost rookie quarterback Carson Wentz for an indefinite amount of time after suffering a hairline fracture in his ribs in his first preseason game Thursday.

The Eagles announced Wentz’s injury Saturday days after the team’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

“Carson felt some discomfort and soreness as we began this morning’s practice. We decided to limit him throughout the remainder of practice and, as a precaution, sent him for a CT scan after practice. The scan revealed a hairline fracture in his ribs,” Eagles coach Doug Pederson said in a statement, per ESPN. “We do not know an exact timetable for his return, but we hope to have him back before the end of the preseason.”

Wentz was 12-for-24 with 89 passing yards in the game.
