    Colts' Carson Wentz: Pair of touchdowns in team debut

    Carson Wentz completed 25 of 38 passes for 251 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Indianapolis Colts' 28-16 loss to the Seahawks on Sunday. He also rushed four times for 23 yards and lost a fumble.After making a particularly fast recovery from early-August foot surgery, Wentz made his effort to be ready for Week 1 worthwhile by putting together a rock-solid effort in his Colts debut. Considering his complete lack of preseason action and a host of unfamiliar offensive personnel around him, Wentz's performance certainly offers both Colts fans and fantasy managers reason for optimism. He ultimately connected with seven different targets, and the sixth-year signal-caller should have increasingly better chemistry with his pass-catching corps moving forward. Wentz will look to build on his promising debut in a Week 2 battle versus the Rams.

    Colts' Carson Wentz: No limitations expected Week 1

    Carson Wentz isn't expected to face any restrictions in his Indianapolis Colts debut Sunday against the Seahawks, despite undergoing foot surgery Aug. 2, Tom Pelissero and Ian Rapoport of NFL Network report.While the Colts are expected to proceed with caution with Wentz to whatever extent they can, head coach Frank Reich said Friday that the signal-caller won't be "limited in any way" less than six weeks after undergoing a procedure that was expected to sideline the quarterback for 5-to-12 weeks. Although Reich has been pleased with Wentz's mobility in the pocket in recent practices, the Colts aren't expected to include any designed runs for the 28-year-old in their Week 1 game plan, even though he's proven to be a solid contributor as a rusher in past seasons. Instead, Reich ideally wants to lean on the Jonathan Taylor-led ground game and have Wentz to play from the pocket for most of the day, though Wentz could face more pressure than usual on passing downs with top left tackle Eric Fisher (Achilles) already ruled out for the season opener. Wentz will also be without one of his key pass catchers for at least three first three games after veteran wideout T.Y. Hilton (neck) was placed on injured reserve Sept. 2.

    Colts' Carson Wentz: Tabbed for Week 1 start

    Coach Frank Reich said Carson Wentz will be the Indianapolis Colts' starting quarterback Sunday against Seattle, Mike Chappell of Fox 59 News Indianapolis reports.As expected, with Wentz recovering from early August foot surgery at the very front end of his initial rehab timeline (5-to-12 weeks). Superstar left guard Quenton Nelson (questionable - foot) also is on track to play after having a similar surgery the same week as Wentz, while starting left tackle Eric Fisher (Achilles) has been ruled out. Wentz will have Michael Pittman, Zach Pascal and Parris Campbell as his top receivers, with Nyheim Hines and Jonathan Taylor out of the backfield and Jack Doyle, Mo Alie-Cox and Kylen Granson at tight end. There's no clear No. 1 target, but Wentz at least should have plenty of options for shallower routes.

    Colts' Carson Wentz: Scheduled for full practice

    Carson Wentz (foot) will be a full participant in practice Wednesday, Zak Keefer of The Athletic reports.With that, Wentz is in line to start under center in Sunday's season opener against the Seahawks, in the absence of any setbacks in practice the next three days. Assuming Wentz is good to go for the Indianapolis Colts in Week 1, he would have most of his key pass-catching options at his disposal save for T.Y. Hilton (neck), who was placed on injured reserve last week.

    Colts' Carson Wentz: Returns to full-team drills

    Carson Wentz (foot) went through 11-on-11 drills at Thursday's practice, Zak Keefer of The Athletic reports.A brief stint on the COVID list delayed his return to full-team drills from Monday to Thursday. It shouldn't matter in terms of Week 1 availability, with all signs suggesting the Indianapolis Colts expect Wentz to start against the Seahawks -- a sentiment the QB echoed after Thursday's practice, per George Bremer of The Anderson Herald Bulletin. Fellow QB Sam Ehlinger (knee) was placed on injured reserve Thursday, leaving Wentz and Jacob Eason as the only signal-callers on Indy's 53-man roster. Wentz is approaching the front end of his recovery timeline (5-12 weeks) after Aug. 2 foot surgery, seemingly headed for a best-case scenario, albeit with risk of re-injury.

    The Indianapolis Colts activated Carson Wentz (foot) from the reserve/COVID list Thursday morning, Zak Keefer of The Athletic reports.Wentz, WR Zach Pascal and C Ryan Kelly have been removed from the list in time for Thursday's practice. Wentz had been scheduled for a full practice Monday before he was deemed a close contact of a team employee who tested positive for COVID-19. The quarterback thus seems likely to be a full practice participant Thursday, with the Colts preparing to start him Sept. 12 against Seattle -- six weeks removed from foot surgery. Jacob Eason is the backup plan if Wentz can't go, while Sam Ehlinger is likely out until October with a knee sprain.

    Colts' Carson Wentz: Should be back soon

    Carson Wentz (foot) should be removed from the reserve/COVID-19 list after five days as long as he continues to test negative and remains asymptomatic, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.The same goes for WR Zach Pascal and C Ryan Kelly, the other players placed on the list Monday afternoon. All three were close contacts with a staff member who tested positive, ruling them out of practice for the next few days. Wentz still should have time to gear up for the Sept. 12 opener against Seattle. Prior to being deemed a close contact, he was scheduled for a full practice Monday -- the latest milestone in his quick recovery from foot surgery.

    Carson Wentz (foot) is practicing again Tuesday, a sign he responded well to Monday's workload, per Zak Keefer of The Athletic.Wentz was shown running and making cuts before Monday's session, and he then took part in 7-on-7s with the first-team offense in what was his first practice since late July. Afterward, he was optimistic about his chances of being ready for Week 1, echoing an increasingly popular sentiment. Wentz is pushing for the very front end of his initial recovery timeline of 5-to-12 weeks as he comes back from Aug. 2 surgery to remove a piece of loose bone from the fifth metatarsal of his left foot.
