WESTFIELD, Ind.–Indianapolis Colts quarterback Carson Wentz will have surgery on his injured foot. It is a procedure that will keep him out for several weeks.
That announcement was made by Colts Head Coach Frank Reich in a news conference Monday morning. Wentz is scheduled to have surgery at 4 pm Monday. He thinks the timeline is going to be 5-12 weeks.
“Carson had an old foot injury, possibly a broken foot in high school,” Reich said. “One wrong move and that broken bone came loose.”
Wentz felt a “twinge in his foot” when he rolled out and planted to throw late in last Thursday’s practice, offensive coordinator Marcus Brady said Friday.
Reich said Wentz had considered rest and rehabilitation but didn’t want to risk missing significant time during the season if that didn’t work.
Reich said Jacob Easton will continue to receive first-team reps at quarterback in practice with Wentz sidelined.
“The job is Jacob’s right now. He has to prove it, he knows that. Jacob’s in the driver’s seat,” said Reich.
The Colts acquired Wentz during the offseason and reunited him with Reich by giving the Philadelphia Eagles a third-round pick in this year’s draft and a conditional second-round pick in the 2022 draft.
