Carson Wentz doesn’t seem to be able to stay healthy. This is his second injury with the Indianapolis Colts.
The franchise quarterback – who was acquired as part of a blockbuster deal last season with the Philadelphia Eagles – was injured Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams. He fell in the fourth quarter.
Wentz limped off the field. He was replaced by Jacob Eason.
The former No. 2 overall pick missed the Colts’ last two practices of the game. It was worrying to see Eason there when the team had lost just one basket.
It appears that Wentz injured his ankle during a play.
“I felt it right away, and I didn’t feel well” Wentz said of the injury. âI tried to save it and do everything I could to finish the game. It’s a bad feeling that you can’t finish the game in this situation. You kind of feel like you’re letting the team down a bit.
Before leaving the contest, he had 20 of 31 for 247 yards. He also had a touchdown pass and an interception.
On the ground, he made five runs for 37 yards.
In August, Wentz underwent foot surgery following an injury at training camp. It was believed he would miss 5 to 12 weeks with the injury.
However, he was back in time to play for his new team against the Seattle Seahawks.
If Wentz is out for an extended period, the Colts will be forced to sign an additional quarterback or trade for one. There is a backup quarterback available; However, Wentz would not like the move of his former teammate.
Nick Foles is the Chicago Bears third quarterback. He shouldn’t start ahead of Andy Dalton or Justin Fields.
So, he should be available in a trade if the Colts could make him work. This summer there was speculation and a story emerged which claimed that Wentz wouldn’t like to be Foles’ teammate again.
We should find out more about Wentz’s injury on Monday. Colts head coach Frank Reich said Wentz “rolled his ankle”.
