Flyers defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere can sympathize with injured Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz.
Three years ago, the player they call “Ghost,” underwent surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Wentz will have similar season-ending surgery and is expected to have the same doctor who operated on Gostisbehere, Peter DeLuca.
