Washington Commanders quarterback Carson Wentz underwent surgery Monday in Los Angeles to repair a fractured finger on his throwing hand, the team said in a statement.

Wentz was informed by doctors that he’s looking at a four-week recovery timeline, a source told ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler. Washington has yet to decide whether to place Wentz on injured reserve, which would require him to miss at least four games.

The Commanders did not specify in their statement how much time Wentz would miss, only that he “will begin rehab and is expected to make a full recovery.”
