Report: Carson Wentz is expected to start

USA TODAY Sports

The Colts list quarterback Carson Wentz as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Titans. The team is expecting Wentz to start, though.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports the Colts are “gearing him up to start barring some sort of setback tomorrow.”

On Friday, Wentz returned to the practice field for the first time since spraining both ankles against the Rams. Wentz was limited.

Colts coach Frank Reich said Friday he expects Wentz’s availability to be a game-time decision.

“I’m very surprised we’re even at this point, to be honest with you, because Monday and Tuesday were pretty bad,” Colts head coach Frank Reich said Friday, via George Bremer of CNHI Sports Indiana. “Monday, I thought (there was) zero chance. Tuesday, I thought there was a glimmer of hope. We just handled it day by day like we’ve said. We’ve been pretty straight forward with how it’s all come down and pretty transparent. It’s been trying to figure it out. Today was the next step in trying to figure that out.”

If Wentz is unable to play, the Colts have Jacob Eason and Brett Hundley available. Though Eason is on the active roster and served as the backup for the first two games, Hundley reportedly took first-team reps this week as a member of the practice squad.

  1. I get it .. Gotta squeeze one more game out of him before he goes on season ending IR.

    0% chance he would play on Monday.. game time 50-50 = 100% chance he won’t play next week.

  2. What the hell was ballard thinking ? reich must have been in his ear because it seemed like a bad idea from the get go. wentz acted like a baby in philly. did they think he was suddenly gonna change ?

  3. Remember: Philly took on a $34M dead money cap hit, the largest in NFL HISTORY, just to ship this guy out of town.

    He’s not good.
