This is not how Carson Wentz wanted to start off his season with a new team.
“He’s with the docs, trying to figure what out the process is,” said offensive coordinator Marcus Brady on Friday, speaking to the media in place of coach Frank Reich (COVID-19). “Still evaluating what the next move is, how bad it is. Then we’ll go from there.”
The Colts quarterback is set to see foot specialist Robert Anderson in the near future, NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo and NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported. Rapoport also added that he may need to have minor surgery and is expected to miss the remainder of the preseason.
Wentz barely got any work in before he suffered the foot injury, which Indianapolis initially hoped was minor, but steadily got worse as the hours went on. Wentz felt a “twinge in his foot” when he rolled out and planted to throw late in the practice.
The start of the new year won’t be here for another six weeks, so there is time to make a decision, but it needs to happen fast.
The Colts sent two draft picks to Philadelphia for the former No. 2 overall pick of the 2016 draft. He demanded a trade late last year after he was benched in favor of Jalen Hurts. He was sacked 50 times and threw 15 interceptions in 12 games.
He has played a full season just twice in his career.
