Wentz completed 19 of 37 passes for 194 yards in Sunday's 25-16 loss to the Titans. Wentz notably was playing with two banged-up ankles, and despite seeing All-Pro guard Quenton Nelson exit early Sunday, he was able to complete the contest. Although Wentz showed grit in doing so, he didn't make much of an impact as a passer and missed an open Michael Pittman on a would-be touchdown as well. Without a win from his first three games as a Colt, Wentz should be especially eager to taste victory Week 4 versus the Dolphins.
Wentz (ankles) is listed active for Sunday's game against the Titans. Per ESPN's Chris Mortensen and Stephen Holder of The Athletic, Wentz -- who injured both of his ankles during Week 2 action -- is slated to start the contest after practicing Friday with heavily-taped ankles and moving around well in the process during the media-access portion of the session. Also in uniform Sunday are Brett Hundley and Jacob Eason, either of whom the Colts could turn to if Wentz struggles or suffers an in-game setback versus Tennessee, though based on how things played out in practice this past week, Hundley could well be the next man up in the event of a Week 3 Wentz setback.
Wentz (ankles), who is questionable on the injury report against Tennessee and will be a game-time decision, is expected to start, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Rapoport adds that Wentz is pushing to play and the Colts have contingency plans in place if he has a setback in warmups or during the game. The Colts activated Brett Hundley from the practice squad Saturday. Hundley would likely play if Wentz can't go since Hundley took the bulk of reps in practice this week over Jacob Eason when Wentz was sidelined. However, Wentz returned to practice Friday and looks set to play even though he was limited in that session.
Wentz (ankles), who is questionable on the injury report against Tennessee and will be a game-time decision, appeared to practice without any hindrance Friday, according to Zak Keefer of The Athletic. He was listed as a limited participant in practice Friday on the official injury report. While Wentz will be a game-time decision, Keefer predicts that he will play unless he has severe swelling from Friday's workouts. If Wentz is ruled out, it's not clear if Brett Hundley or Jacob Eason will start. Head coach Frank Reich would not say Friday which backup would start if Wentz can't play.
Wentz (ankles) was a limited participant in Friday's practice and will be a game-time decision for Sunday's game against Tennessee. Head coach Frank Reich said Wentz looked OK during the session, Mike Chappell of Fox 59 News Indianapolis reports. It sounds like Wentz has a real chance to play, but the team likely will need to see how his sore ankles respond after a day off. If Wentz isn't able to play, practice squad quarterback Brett Hundley could start as he has handled most of the first-team reps ahead of Jacob Eason.
