The star quarterback for the Indianapolis Colts, Carson Wentz, will be out indefinitely after he underwent further testing for his foot injury. He suffered this injury while practicing on Thursday, according to sources who mentioned it to ESPN. Wentz reportedly felt a slight twinge in his foot, when he moved in to roll out and then planted a throw late in the practice, according to Marcus Brady- the offensive coordinator for the team.
Carson Wentz and His Saga With Injuries
Carson Wentz is still looking for more information that would crop up in his testing- with the team hoping that they would have a much better idea as to how long the QB would have to sit out. This worry will only be alleviated after Robert Anderson, the foot specialist will be reviewing the scans, as mentioned by Adam Schefter.
The team is hoping that this wouldn’t turn out to be a season-ending injury. Brady, one of the interviewees in place of coach Frank Reich stated that the player was still with the doctors who were trying to run through the process. They were still debating on the best possible course of action- and what would that result in.
Carson Wentz was acquired by the Colts during the offseason- which saw him reuniting with the coach by providing the Philadelphia Eagles a third-round pick in the draft for the year. This would also come with a conditional second-round pick in the 2022 draft. The last season saw the Quarterback being benched in favor of Jalen Hurts, as he was sacked 50 times- with an interception rate of 15 in 12 games.
As has been reported, injuries have been a major part of Carson Wentz’s career- especially the first five years in the NFL. He previously suffered a season-ending injury in 2017 when he tore his ACL. Overall, he has been able to play a full season just twice in his career.
