  • Colts' Sam Ehlinger: Set for backup duties

    Ehlinger will operate as Indianapolis' top backup to Garner Minshew beginning with Sunday's game against the Jaguars after Anthony Richardson (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Stephen Holder of reports.

    Ehlinger has been inactive for four of the Colts' first five games, with the lone time he's dressed coming in Week 3 at Baltimore while Richardson was sidelined with a concussion. After suffering an AC joint sprain to his throwing shoulder in the Week 5 win over the Titans, Richardson is projected to miss 4-to-8 weeks, setting Ehlinger up for an extended run as the No. 2 quarterback. The Colts also signed Kellen Mond to their practice squad Wednesday to provide the organization with further depth at quarterback.

  • Colts' Sam Ehlinger: Moves past shoulder issue

    Ehlinger wasn't listed Wednesday on the Colts' first Week 5 injury report.

    Ehlinger was listed as questionable ahead of last week's game against the Rams due to a right shoulder injury. He was ultimately inactive for the Colts' 29-23 overtime loss, but that might have had more to do with his standing as Indianapolis' No. 3 quarterback behind Anthony Richardson and Gardner Minshew than because of the injury. Now that he's off the injury report entirely, Ehlinger should be in the clear for Sunday's game against the Titans, though he might be a healthy inactive this time around.

  • Colts' Sam Ehlinger: Still dealing with injury

    Ehlinger (shoulder) is inactive Sunday against the Rams.

    Ehlinger, despite the injury and being considered inactive, will still suit up as the team's emergency option at quarterback. However, for him to see the field, Anthony Richardson and Gardner Minshew would both need to suffer injuries.

  • Colts' Sam Ehlinger: Questionable with shoulder injury

    Ehlinger is questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams with a right shoulder injury.

    Ehlinger was a limited practice participant Thursday and didn't practice Friday, suggesting that he suffered the injury during the week. If available, Ehlinger would be called upon Sunday only if both Anthony Richardson and Gardner Minshew get injured. Richardson has been cleared to start after missing the Colts' Week 3 win over the Ravens while recovering from a concussion.

  • Colts' Sam Ehlinger: Serving as emergency QB

    Ehlinger (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's matchup against the Texans, but he'll dress and serve as the Colts' emergency quarterback.

    Ehlinger doesn't count against the 53-man roster but will be available if Anthony Richardson and Gardner Minshew are forced out of the game. Ehlinger appeared in four games for Indianapolis last year and completed 63 percent of his passes for 573 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions.

  • Colts' Sam Ehlinger: Strong outing as No. 3 QB

    Ehlinger was 9-of-14 passing for 124 yards and had eight carries for 60 yards, including a five-yard touchdown, in Saturday's preseason win over Chicago.

    Despite nominally being in the starting quarterback competition to begin training camp, Ehlinger appears locked into the No. 3 quarterback role with Anthony Richardson named the Week 1 starter and Gardner Minshew set as the backup. A larger question may be whether the Colts plan to keep three quarterbacks on the active roster.

  • Colts' Sam Ehlinger: Sharp in preseason debut

    Ehlinger was 8-for-9 passing for 72 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions in Saturday's preseason loss at Buffalo. He also add two carries for 10 yards.

    Ehlinger entered the game in the second half as the third quarterback to play. He was efficient in facing the second- and third-team defense. While he's nominally said to be in the competition for the starting job, he more likely is fighting to keep a spot on the roster, with Gardner Minshew and Anthony Richardson ahead of him.

  • Colts' Sam Ehlinger: In competition for starting job

    Ehlinger will enter training camp in a competition for the starting quarterback role in Indianapolis, Raven Moore of the Colts' official site reports.

    Ehlinger appeared in four games (three starts) last season, producing 573 passing yards and three touchdowns while throwing three interceptions. He enters camp as the third quarterback behind Gardner Minshew and first-round pick Anthony Richardson, making it highly unlikely that he'll emerge from the preseason atop the depth chart.
