PHILADELPHIA (AP) Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz has had his first postseason start ended by a head injury.

Wentz appeared to get injured in the first quarter of the wild-card playoff game against Seattle when he was drilled on a helmet-to-helmet hit from Seahawks defensive end Jadeveon Clowney.

Wentz stayed in the game for several plays before he was checked out in the sideline medical tent. He left for the locker room late in the quarter and was ruled out at halftime.

Wentz was replaced by Josh McCown. The 40-year-old veteran made his first playoff appearance.
