Source: Colts do expect Wentz back this season

NFL

Indianapolis Colts QB Carson Wentz is out indefinitely as he undergoes further testing for a foot injury that he suffered at the end of Thursday’s practice, sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Mike Wells.

Second-year quarterback Jacob Eason took the starter’s reps at Friday’s practice, with Sam Ehlinger serving as the backup.

The Colts acquired Wentz during the offseason and reunited him with coach Frank Reich by giving the Philadelphia Eagles a third-round pick in this year’s draft and a conditional second-round pick in the 2022 draft.

Wentz was benched in favor of Jalen Hurts with the Eagles last season after being sacked 50 times and throwing 15 interceptions in 12 games.
