Rough news has come in for the Indianapolis Colts, as Carson Wentz is out indefinitely due to a foot injury.
Unfortunately for Carson Wentz, he’s already facing even more adversity with his new team. Wentz arrived to the Indianapolis Colts after a rough falling out with the Philadelphia Eagles, hoping to silence his haters and put on a show in the AFC South.
Now, though, Wentz is out indefinitely due to a foot injury. This is of course bad news for the Colts, as Week 1 will be here before you know it. For Wentz, the former first-round pick simply can’t catch a break.

With Wentz sidelined, second-year quarterback Jacob Eason will be taking over running the first-team offense. Eason, a former 5-star signal-caller who signed with Georgia and then transferred to hometown Washington, was taken in the fourth round of the 2020 NFL Draft.
Meanwhile for Wentz, his latest injury simply has to be beyond frustrating for him. After having so much hype with the Eagles, and making the Pro Bowl in 2017, things really went south for him. His days with Philadelphia got so bad, former head coach Doug Pederson benched him last year in favor of Jalen Hurts.
After having all that happen, Wentz traveled to Indianapolis with some pep in his step, really hoping to get his career back on track. You could see just how motivated he is with his latest comments this offseason.
Now, though, Wentz will have to rehab his foot and try and get back to 100 percent before the season-opener arrives. If things linger and Wentz won’t be able to suit up for Week 1, then all eyes will turn to Eason to see what he can get done.
