Wentz's Injury Forces Colts into Backup Plan at Quarterback

With Wentz out indefinitely because of an injured foot, the Colts have gone to their backup plan.

Indianapolis traded for Carson Wentz to end the annual revolving door at quarterback.

Now, just four days into training camp, the Colts are scrambling again.

With Wentz out indefinitely because of an injured foot, the Colts have gone to their backup plan — relying on three young quarterbacks who have never thrown an NFL pass, and Brett Hundley, who signed Saturday.

Hundley has played for Green Bay, Arizona and Seattle. He has played in 18 games and started nine in his six-year career. He brings a stabilizing presence to a team that started training camp with four quarterbacks.

The Colts also have four players on the reserve/COVID-19 list and coach Frank Reich has not yet returned to the field after testing positive late last week.

Just another day in paradise; afternoon highs again topped out in the mid to low 70s across the Tri-State under a mix of sun and clouds. If you have plans out and about this evening, make sure to grab a jacket before you head out - after seeing temperatures near 64° around dinnertime, the mercury will dip to 57° by 10 o'clock before falling all the way back down into the mid to upper 40s early Wednesday morning. Sure, tomorrow morning's lows of 47° will represent our mildest start to a day since this past Friday, but it's still going to make for a cool start to our midweek nonetheless. The combination of sunshine and southerly winds however, will help drive temperatures back into the low 70s by lunchtime - if you're planning on lunching outside Wednesday, make sure not to do so in the shade. Wind gusts near 15 mph at times during our lunch hour will make for a chilly brown bag lunch outdoors.
