Report: Brett Hundley took majority of starter reps for Colts on Wednesday


Apparently, the Titans need to prepare for three different quarterbacks.

According to NFL Media’s Tom Pelissero, Colts practice squad QB Brett Hundley took the majority of starter reps in Wednesday’s practice. If starter Carson Wentz is not able to play due to his two sprained ankles, then both Hundley and Jacob Eason could both see time against Tennessee on Sunday.

The Colts have until Saturday to elevate Hundley to their gameday roster. Pelissero reports a final decision on whether or not Wentz plays may not come until Sunday.

Hundley has been with Indianapolis since July 31, when Wentz had to undergo surgery to repair his broken foot. Hundley spent the rest of training camp with the club and signed with the practice squad at the start of the regular season.

Hundley’s experience is reportedly a factor in his potential playing time. A fifth-round pick in 2015, Hundley started nine games for Green Bay in 2017 — albeit with middling results. He completed 61 percent of his passes for 1,836 yards with nine touchdowns and 12 interceptions that season, compiling a 3-6 record as a starter.

While Eason is the team’s backup, he’s inexperienced. That showed last week when he threw an interception to Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey on his second passing attempt last Sunday.

Wentz did not participate in Wednesday’s practice after undergoing aggressive treatment on his ankles. It’s unclear if he’ll be able to participate at all this week, but there is a possibility he plays against Tennessee even without practicing.

Wentz sprained both of his ankles during the Week Two loss to the Rams. Wentz’s right ankle was injured late in the game when the quarterback was twisted down by defensive tackle Aaron Donald. His left ankle was sprained earlier in the contest, but Wentz was able to play through it.

  1. Should’ve swallowed their pride and traded for Nick Foles. Now they’re starting 0-3 and throwing this season away.

  2. Hundley’s “experience” is exactly why he should not start.

    Just start Eason and see what he can do

  3. Wouldn’t it be cool if Luck came back for just a game or two then left when Wentz get’s the great light? That would light up the fan-base for sure.

  4. I think people are really underestimating Wentz. He’s tough. He gets injured often because he plays hard, puts himself in harm’s way.

    Just kidding. I’m an Eagles fan and was his biggest supporter. Now, I can’t stand him. He looks a lot different when you’re not wearing eagles-tinted glasses.

  5. And the biggest weirdness for all of us Eagles fans is, we have to root for him this season, because of the draft pick trade compensation. Talk about a weird, surreal level of hell! Dante couldn’t have even predicted this one!

  6. Wentz didn’t just slip on a banana peal he’s one of the most hit QB’s in the league. If they start Eason he probably doesn’t make it to halftime anyway. The Colts offensive line has gotten exposed now that they don’t have the Jacoby Brissett trick plays they used when Luck and Rivers were the starters that took advantage of his scrambling ability when they needed downfield production.

  7. Yes, the Colts coulda/shoulda traded for Foles but he’s off the market until Andy Dalton is healthy again.
