Colts QB out indefinitely with a foot injury
The Colts have already been hit hard on the quarterback, with new signal-caller Wentz injuring his foot during Thursday’s Indianapolis training camp practice.
Initially, it didn’t look great: Wentz was ruled out of practice on Friday, with second-year quarterback Jacob Essen taking a starter snap instead. The NFL Network reports that the present hope is that the injury isn’t regrettable, but ESPN reports no current timetable for a return.

Wentz, the previous Eagle, features a bit more of an injury history, and its love was something he couldn’t leave behind in Philadelphia as he headed to Heartland.
Colts quarterback Carson Wentz will be out “indefinitely,” consistent with ESPN’s Adam Shifter. Wentz suffered an injury at the top of Thursday’s practice. Sophomore passer-by Jacob Essen took a starter rap during Friday’s practice.
There is no timeline for Wentz to return. The present hope is that the injury isn’t too serious, but the team expects a robust assessment to maneuver forward, consistent with NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo and Ian Report.
In February, Wentz was traded to the Colts, reunited with former Philly CB coach, now indie head coach Frank Reich. The Colts hope Wentz, a former No. 2 overall picks, could turn his career around a couple of years later in Philly.
