Colts have no timetable for return of Carson Wentz

Colts quarterback Carson Wentz is out of practice with a foot injury, and the Colts don’t know when he’ll return.

Colts defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus, who is handling some of the head-coaching duties after Frank Reich tested positive for COVID-19, said today that it remains to be seen when Wentz can return.

“There’s no timetable,” Eberflus said.

Wentz reportedly could need surgery that would put his availability for Week One in jeopardy. With the uncertainty surrounding Wentz, the Colts signed free agent quarterback Brett Hundley today.

The only silver lining for the Colts is that if Wentz misses significant time, they won’t lose their first-round draft pick: If Wentz plays 75 percent of the Colts’ offensive snaps, or 70 percent of snaps and the Colts make the playoffs, the Colts have to send the Eagles their 2022 first-round pick. If not, the Colts only have to send the Eagles a second-round pick.

  1. So a no update update?

    If it’s a 2nd it’s a 2nd, I think the entire city of Philadelphia is just happy to move on.

  2. I’d be willing to bet they’re gonna place him on the pup list. Being out at least 6 weeks would all but guarantee philly getting a 2nd rounder.

  3. Wentz saw his own shadow and mistook it for a competent backup the Colts had just traded for.

  4. Imagine Wentz isn’t the only NDSU QB getting cut this year after showing he can’t make it in the NFL.

    I’ve been trying to imagine for years why Seahawk “fans” are more obsessed with the 49ers than they are their own team. 🤣

  6. So the thoughts I’ve been reading here is that the colts will throw away six games because they don’t want to give up that #1 ?
    That’s just childish !

  7. “I’ve been trying to imagine for years why Seahawk “fans” are more obsessed with the 49ers than they are their own team.”

    Methinks they doth protest too much.

    That Seahawk fan is worried that the Niners will keep the Seahawks out of the playoffs this year.

    Come on bro, you know it’s a rivalry thing. Don’t act like you don’t hit on Seahawks articles and throw in your 2 cents. And no, I’m not a hawk fan, just calling it how it is.

  9. I can’t believe how much Wentz has fallen after showing so much promise coming out of N D state

  10. this guy appears to be fragile, has he ever played a 16 game season, has he ever won a single playoff game, has he played in one?
