Colts' Brett Hundley: Remains No. 2 QB
Hundley remains the backup to Carson Wentz with Sam Ehlinger having replaced Jacob Eason on the active roster, Kevin Bowen of 107.5 The Fan reports.
Hundley had been replaced by Jacob Eason as the Colts' top backup earlier this season, but the veteran has now settled back into the No. 2 role. Now operating as the No. 3 quarterback is Ehlinger, a rookie sixth-round pick.... See More ... See Less
Colts' Brett Hundley: Back to active roster
Hundley was signed off the practice squad by the Colts in advance of Monday's game against Baltimore.
Hundley served as the Colts' backup quarterback Week 4 against the Dolphins and presumably will occupy the same role Monday against Baltimore. Jacob Eason has been demoted to the No. 3 role as a result.... See More ... See Less
Brett Hundley: Sent back to practice squad
Hundley reverted to Indianapolis' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Colts' Brett Hundley: Set as backup
Hundley was elevated to the active roster Saturday.
It was reported earlier this week Hundley would be elevated to serve as the backup behind Carson Wentz, so this hardly comes as a surprise. This marks the second time the veteran quarterback has been elevated from the practice squad, meaning the Colts will need to decide whether or not he'll officially join the active roster next week....

Brett Hundley: Will operate as backup Sunday
The Colts plan to elevate Hundley from the practice squad to serve as the No. 2 quarterback behind Carson Wentz in Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Mike Wells of ESPN.com reports.
Hundley previously served as the backup quarterback during the Week 3 loss to the Titans while Wentz played through a pair of sprained ankles. Wentz appears to have avoided any setbacks coming out of that contest, but Hundley is still on track to receive another promotion to the roster ahead of the weekend. The Colts seemingly view Hundley as a more NFL-ready option than 2020 fourth-round pick Jacob Eason.... See More ... See Less
Brett Hundley: Reverts back to practice squad
Hundley reverted back to Indianapolis' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.
Hundley was active for Sunday's contest, but he didn't see the field as Carson Wentz played through a pair of sprained ankles. The Colts appeared to favor Hundley over Jacob Eason as the primary backup, so the UCLA product may get another shot on the 53-man roster by the end of the season.... See More ... See Less
Colts' Brett Hundley: Takes second-team reps in warmups
Hundley took second-team QB snaps behind Carson Wentz during warmups before Sunday's game against the Titans, according to Mike Wells of ESPN.com and Stephen Holder of The Athletic.
Wentz, who's dealing with a pair of injured ankles, is slated to draw the start at QB for the Colts on Sunday, but to be on the safe side, the team elected to dress three signal-callers (Wentz, Hundley and Jacob Eason) for the contest. In the event that Wentz suffers an in-game setback, however, it appears as though Indy would turn to Hundley rather than Eason.... See More ... See Less
Colts' Brett Hundley: Elevated to active roster
Hundley was elevated from the practice squad Saturday.
All reports seem to indicate Carson Wentz will start Sunday's contest despite sprains in both ankles, but the decision to call up Hundley is at least eyebrow raising considering the veteran castoff saw most of the first-team reps and not Jacob Eason throughout practice this week. Expect clarification as to who will start against Tennessee as it gets closer to Sunday's 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff.... See More ... See Less
Brett Hundley: Small chance for spot start
The Colts have prepared Hundley to start Sunday at Tennessee if Wentz (ankles) is unable to play, Albert Breer of SI.com reports.
Wentz emerged from Week 2 with a pair of sprained ankles, and as the week progressed and he didn't take the practice field, Hundley and not Jacob Eason took on most of the first-team reps. The development was an interesting one, with Hundley on the practice squad and Eason, a 2020 fourth-round pick, on the active roster. Because Wentz is a game-time decision for Sunday, the Colts likely will elevate Hundley on Saturday as insurance for Week 3, even if Wentz ends up being active. And if Hundley gets the start, it'll mark his first since Week 17 of the 2017 campaign as a member of the Packers. In seven starts that season, he averaged 186.6 passing yards per game, had an 8:9 TD:INT and racked up 267 yards and two more scores on the ground.... See More ... See Less
Brett Hundley: May bump up from practice squad
The Colts will likely elevate Hundley from the practice squad if Carson Wentz (ankles) is unable to suit up for Sunday's matchup against the Titans, Kevin Bowen of 107.5 The Fan Indianapolis reports.
Hundley has nine career NFL starts under his belt and thus boasts more experience than 2020 fourth-round pick Jacob Eason, but it looks like Hundley would only be bound for backup duties in the event that Wentz is ruled out for Week 3. Still, head coach Frank Reich declined to officially name Hundley or Eason as the favorite for a spot start if Wentz can't go, so Indianapolis' quarterback situation will warrant monitoring in deeper fantasy formats, especially two-QB or superflex leagues....

Brett Hundley: Seeing first-team reps
Hundley handled the majority of first-team reps at Wednesday's practice, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Hundley, who still remains on the practice squad, took most of the starting reps in Indianapolis' first weekly practice with Carson Wentz (ankle) on the sidelines. It's somewhat surprising to see the scout team quarterback operate ahead of second-year pro Jacob Eason, who was active on gameday as the backup to Wentz during the first two weeks of the season, but Hundley does offer substantially more NFL experience. The Colts are still monitoring whether Wentz might be able to suit up Week 3 against the Titans, but if he can't go both Hundley and Eason could get chances to see the field.... See More ... See Less
Brett Hundley: Back on practice squad
The Colts signed Hundley to the practice squad Wednesday, Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star reports.
Hundley will be available as an emergency quarterback option for the Colts, which is particularly noteworthy with Sam Ehlinger (knee) set to miss up to six weeks. The 28-year-old signal-caller didn't suit up for a single game in 2020.... See More ... See Less
Brett Hundley: Waived by Colts
Hundley was waived by the Colts on Tuesday, Jim Ayello of The Indianapolis Star reports.
It's the latest sign the team expects Carson Wentz (foot) to be ready for Week 1. Wentz, Jacob Eason and Sam Ehlinger (knee) are the remaining quarterbacks on the roster, with Ehlinger expected to be out until October. Meanwhile, Hundley could be a match for the Colts' practice squad if he isn't claimed off waivers by another team.... See More ... See Less
Colts' Brett Hundley: Path opens up with Colts
Hundley completed six of 12 passes for 52 yards with a touchdown and an interception, while adding 30 rushing yards on six carries, in Friday's preseason win over the Lions.
The former Packer and Cardinal came into the game after Sam Ehlinger (knee) made an early exit, and while Hundley didn't distinguish himself statistically, he did lead the Colts to 18 points in the fourth quarter and a come-from-behind victory. If Ehlinger's injury proves to be serious and the team still has concerns about Carson Wentz's (foot) health heading into a Week 1 contest against Seattle, Hundley could wind up on the 53-man roster as the No. 3 QB....
