Eason (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Packers. With Russell Wilson (finger) returning to the starting role, Geno Smith has been demoted to the backup role and Eason is the odd man out in the quarterback pecking order. Eason is not likely to see the field any time soon unless both Wilson and Smith are unable to play.
Eason will be active Sunday against the Jaguars. Eason was claimed off waivers from the Colts on Oct. 20. He was inactive in Monday's contest against the Saints, but will now serve as Geno Smith's backup. Eason replaced an injured Carson Wentz in Week 2 against the Rams and completed two of five passes for 25 yards and an interception.
Eason was waived by the Colts on Tuesday, Doug Kyed of Pro Football Focus reports. Eason fell behind Brett Hundley in the Colts' pecking order and has now lost his roster spot altogether with Sam Ehlinger (knee) being activated off injured reserve. Eason had some intriguing tools coming out of college but hasn't shown enough at the pro level to keep a backup role at this point.
Eason (coach's decision) is listed as inactive Monday at Baltimore. Eason was active but didn't play in the season opener, but when pressed into action for an injured Carson Wentz in Week 2, he didn't fare well, completing two of five passes for 25 yards and one interception. Wentz hasn't missed any game action in the meantime, but Brett Hundley and not Eason has been the active backup QB for what is now three contests in a row. Eason seems poised to be a healthy scratch for as long as Wentz and Hundley are healthy and available, though Sam Ehlinger (knee) could throw a wrench into the plan at No. 2 if he's able to return from IR.
The Colts have named Brett Hundley as the backup quarterback behind Carson Wentz for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, likely leaving Eason as a healthy inactive for that contest, Mike Wells of ESPN.com reports. Hundley doesn't currently possess a spot on the 53-man roster, but the Colts will elevate him from the practice squad for the second straight week to provide a more experienced option behind the banged-up Wentz, who sprained both of his ankles Week 2. Though Hundley may not become a permanent member of the roster, Eason could be stuck in the No. 3 role for the rest of the season, if he isn't waived or traded elsewhere. Rookie sixth-round pick Sam Ehlinger (knee) was designated to return from injured reserve Wednesday after missing the first three weeks of the season, and he could eventually move ahead of Eason in the pecking order at quarterback once activated.
