Washington Commanders quarterback Carson Wentz’s availability is in question after suffering a fractured finger in Thursday’s win over the Chicago Bears, NFL Network reported Saturday.

According to the report, Wentz is headed to Los Angeles to see a hand specialist to evaluate the situation.

Wentz completed 12 of 22 passes for 99 yards without a touchdown or an interception in Washington’s 12-7 win over Chicago on Thursday night.

Taylor Heinicke serves as the backup and rookie Sam Howell is the third quarterback for the Commanders (2-4), who return to action against the visiting Green Bay Packers on Oct. 23.

Wentz, 29, has thrown for 1,489 yards with 10 touchdowns and six interceptions in six games this season.

He has completed 62.6 percent of his passes with 150 touchdowns and 63 picks in 91 career games with the Eagles (2016-20), Indianapolis Colts (2021) and Commanders since being selected by Philadelphia with the second overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.
