Carson Wentz gets a fresh start this season after being traded to the Colts. Hopefully, Wentz can rebound and become a No. 1 Fantasy quarterback again in all leagues. He's worth drafting with a late-round pick in deep one-quarterback leagues and a mid-round selection in two-quarterback and Superflex formats. Wentz should benefit with a solid offensive line in Indianapolis, and hopefully guys like T.Y. Hilton, Michael Pittman and Parris Campbell can help Wentz thrive. He's replacing Philip Rivers, who last year passed for 4,169 yards, 24 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. Wentz averaged just 18.3 Fantasy points per game last year, but he does have three seasons on his resume with at least 20.6 Fantasy points per game in his career. Let's hope being reunited with Frank Reich can help Wentz get back to that level again.
Wentz (foot) would be likely to miss the start of the regular season if he had surgery, but he still hopes to avoid the procedure and suit up Week 1, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Wentz will meet with foot specialist Robert Anderson before coming to a final decision. The quarterback felt a twinge in his foot at the end of Thursday's practice and then was held out Friday while Jacob Eason led the first-team offense. Previous reports suggested any surgery would be minor, but the latest update is saying Wentz could be out beyond mid-September even if he has surgery in early August.
Wentz may have a minor surgical procedure on his injured foot, but he's still considering multiple options, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Even if he does have surgery, Rapoport adds that the quarterback wouldn't be likely to miss many games, if any at all. Still, it's a major obstacle for Wentz, an injury-prone QB coming off the worst season of his career and now leading a new team with playoff expectations. Jacob Eason filled in as the first-team quarterback at Friday's practice, while Wentz is scheduled to see foot specialist Robert Anderson in the near future, per Mike Garafolo of NFL Network. It may be a few days before Wentz and the Colts make a decision on a treatment/rehab plan.
The Colts are waiting for a diagnosis after Wentz left Thursday's practice with a foot injury, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Wentz is having additional tests after the initial evaluation was unable to provide a diagnosis. He suffered the injury at the end of Thursday's practice and was replaced by Jacob Eason for Friday's session. Wentz seems likely to miss a chunk of training camp, at the very least.
Wentz, who suffered a foot injury at the end of Thursday's practice, is "out indefinitely as he undergoes further testing," according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. It remains to be seen how much time Wentz might miss, but next up for the Colts' QB reps is Jacob Eason, who took starter's reps Friday. Also in the team's signal-caller mix are Sam Ehlinger and Jalen Morton.
Wentz isn't participating at Friday's practice due to a foot injury, Mike Wells of ESPN.com reports. Wentz appeared to suffer the injury during Thursday's practice, as he didn't work with the first-team offense to close out the session, per George Bremer of The Anderson Herald Bulletin. The specifics of the injury remain unclear, but more information should be available on the issue in the near future.
