News broke earlier on Friday that often-injured Indianapolis Colts quarterback Carson Wentz is out indefinitely with a foot ailment he suffered late in Thursday’s practice.
The update isn’t promising, although the Colts don’t necessarily need to be reaching for the panic button with August quickly approaching.
NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo and Ian Rapoport (h/t Nick Shook) report that Wentz is scheduled to meet with foot specialist Robert Anderson soon to determine the exact nature of the injury. It’s likely the 28-year-old won’t play during the preseason, and it’s possible he could remain sidelined through at least the start of the regular season in September if he requires surgery to repair the issue.
