Wentz on Colts Injured List for Five Plus Weeks
Tuesday, August 3, 2021

WESTFIELD, IN - Indianapolis Colts quarterback Carson Wentz is expected to miss 5 to 12 weeks because a broken left foot.

Coachimg officials with the Colts made the announcement following his return to the practice field after missing all of last week's workouts because of a positive COVID-19 test. Wentz reportedly had surgery to remove a piece of bone.

Doctors found Wentz had broken the foot years ago, probably in high school, and that a piece of bone came loose when he hurt the foot last week.

For now, Indy plans to use Jacob Eason as the starter. Eason was a fourth-round draft pick in 2020. A start this season will be his first in an NFL game, regular season or preseason.
