PHILADELPHIA - Landon Solberg died on cancer this week. He was only 12 years old.
You may have heard of him through the "Landon's Light" tee shirts North Dakota State University Men's Basketball Coach Dave Richman wore last season or when Solberg threw out the first pitch at Carson Wentz's AO1 Foundation charity softball game.
We start this week's Wentz Watch with Carson's answer to the question about the shirt he's wearing:
"To see his fight and hit faith through his fight, his faith in Jesus really inspired me and just seeing how he fought over and over through that battle. It's tough for me to see that and my prayers have been with his family and I know Landon's up there celebrating with Jesus, so that's something we can always celebrate, but it is tough to see things like that for sure," said Wentz.
On the field, the Philadelphia Eagles had a tough weekend because they lost.
Philadelphia suffered a number of injuries to players on the offense, many of them are Wentz's targets in the passing game.
"I've never quite seen anything quite like that where three of your top five weapons go down early in the game like that so this week knowing where we might be come Sunday we can prepare and have this planned and ready to go and again I feel confident in the guys that we will put out there and they're going to make a lot of plays," said Wentz.
Sunday, Wentzand the Eagles are hosting Detroit. Then just four days later on September 26, Philadelphia is in Green Bay.
