Former Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Emmanuel Acho is speaking out against the team's training staff after news broke on Thursday that quarterback Carson Wentz had suffered a fractured vertabrae.

Acho, 28, criticized the Eagles' staff in a video posted on Twitter. Acho called the unit "suspect" and cited specific examples from his playing days with the Eagles as reasons to be concerned.

Acho added that he believes the staff has the best interest of the team, not the players, in mind when it makes diagnoses.

The four-year linebacker originally tweeted his criticisms in April 2017 in response to Philadelphia drafting Sidney Jones, who was then dealing with a torn Achilles. He noted on Thursday that the team had fired their head trainer 17 days after winning the Super Bowl.

Wentz initially appeared on the Eagles' injury report in Week 6 but has continued to play through his back injury. A CT scan revealed on Thursday that the quarterback had actually suffered a fractured vertabrae. 

Wentz is not expected to play on Sunday against the Rams and may not play again in 2018 depending on Sunday's result.
