  • Colts' Jacob Eason: Will fill in for Wentz

    With Carson Wentz slated to undergo a foot procedure, Eason is in line to handle to the Colts' starting QB duties for the time being, Zak Keefer of The Athletic reports.

    Per Adam Schefter of ESPN, Wentz will miss an estimated 5-to-12 weeks. Under that broad timeline, there's the distinct possibility that Eason will be the Colts' starting signal-caller in Week 1. With that in mind, coach Frank Reich indicated that the "job is Jacob's right now...and he's gotta earn it. But he's in the driver's seat." Also currently in the team's quarterback mix are Sam Ehlinger, Brett Hundley and Jalen Morton.

  • Colts' Carson Wentz: Getting surgery, out for 5-12 weeks

    Wentz (foot) will undergo surgery and is expected to be out for 5-to-12 weeks, Stephen Holder of The Athletic reports.

    The vague recovery timeline isn't especially helpful, but we at least know Wentz has decided on surgery, making him unlikely to play Week 1. According to coach Frank Reich, Wentz's foot injury is an old problem that may date as far back as high school but didn't need to be addressed seriously until now. Previous reports suggested Wentz would be out for at least the first week or two of the regular season if he needed surgery, but there at least seems to be widespread agreement that his foot injury isn't a season-ender. Jacob Eason has been taking most of the first-team reps since Wentz left practice last week, with Sam Ehlinger, Jalen Morton and now Brett Hundley providing depth at quarterback.

  • Colts' Julien Davenport: Placed on COVID list

    Davenport (undisclosed) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday.

    Davenport signed with Indianapolis in late March, but he'll be unavailable early in training camp. Once he's healthy, he should compete for a depth role on the Colts' offensive line.

  • Colts' Joey Ivie: Signs with Indy

    Ivie signed a contract with the Colts on Saturday.

    Ivie spent time with Cleveland last year but didn't see game action and mostly worked on the practice squad. The 26-year-old appeared in eight games between the Chiefs and Titans in 2019, and he should complete for a depth role for the Colts.

  • Colts' Taylor Stallworth: Leaves practice with injury

    Stallworth limped off the field at Saturday's practice and had his hamstring wrapped, Stephen Holder of The Athletic reports.

    Stallworth recorded 12 total tackles in 16 games for the Colts last year and re-signed with the team during the offseason. The severity of the injury is unknown, but he'll have a couple weeks to recover before the preseason opener Aug. 15 against Carolina.

  • Colts' Carson Wentz: Opting for rehab program

    Wentz (foot) won't immediately undergo surgery and will instead begin a rest and rehab program, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Wentz recently met with foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson, and surgery apparently isn't guaranteed to be necessary. The 28-year-old should be available Week 1 if the rehab program goes well, as opposed to the procedure which would likely sideline him beyond mid-September. It's uncertain whether or not the strategy will work, and Wentz could have more limited mobility even if he doesn't go under the knife. Jacob Eason led the first-team offense at Friday's practice after Wentz suffered the injury.

  • Colts' Brett Hundley: Signs with Colts

    Hundley signed a contract with the Colts on Saturday.

    Hundley will be in contention for the starting job in Indianapolis if Carson Wentz's foot injury lingers into the season. Even if Wentz gets back to full health, Hundley has a good chance of sticking around as the backup over 2020 fourth-round pick Jacob Eason and 2021 sixth-rounder Sam Ehlinger. Hundley started nine games for the Packers in 2017, throwing for 1,836 yards and a 9:12 TD:INT.

  • Colts' Carson Wentz: Could miss Week 1

    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.

  • Colts' Carson Wentz: Considering minor foot surgery

    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.

  • Colts' Holton Hill: Signs with Indy

    Hill signed a one-year contract with the Colts on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Hill is over the foot injury that bothered him late in 2020, and the former Vikings cornerback has a good chance of securing a roster spot with the Colts as a depth option in the secondary.

  • Colts' Carson Wentz: Getting tests for foot injury

    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.

  • Colts' Ryan Kelly: Sidelined with elbow injury

    Kelly is expected to miss a couple of weeks of training camp after suffering an elbow injury in Thursday's practice, Kevin Bowen of 107.5 The Fan Indianapolis reports.

    Kelly tweaked his injury during a play Thursday and it was first thought to be minor, but he'll apparently need some time off. He suffered the injury early enough in training camp to be ready for Week 1, given his importance to the Colts' offensive line, his progress bears monitoring.

  • Colts' Jacob Eason: Filling in for Wentz

    Eason worked with the Colts' starters during Friday's practice, Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star reports.

    With Carson Wentz dealing with a foot injury that is expected to cost him some time, Eason is in line to take starter's reps at practice in the meantime, with Sam Ehlinger and Jalen Morton also on hand. A timetable for Wentz's return is pending the results of tests that he's undergoing, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

    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.
