Indianapolis Colts' Carson Wentz out of NFL indefinitely due to foot injury
- Wentz's first camp barely got off the ground before he suffered a foot injury
- The start of the season is six weeks away and Wentz is missing out on valuable time
- The Colts finished last season with wildcard entry into the postseason
NFL side Indianapolis Colts' quarterback Carson Wentz is set to see noted foot specialist Robert Anderson, according to media reports, further delaying his start with the new team.
Wentz's first camp barely got off the ground before he suffered a foot injury. The Colts initially hoped that the injury was minor, but the team appears to be growing more concerned about the seriousness of it. The team hopes that Wentz does not need to undergo a surgical procedure, but if he does require that, his time away from the field could stretch into the regular season. The latter scenario is not expected to involve many games, NFL Network Insider said.
The start of the season is six weeks away and this may turn out to be nothing for the Colts but Wentz is missing out on valuable time with the team as he is still new in the setting.
The training camp is Wentz's first with the Colts who traded two draft picks with the Philadelphia Eagles for the services of the number 2 overall pick of the 2016 draft. The quarterback is attempting to reclaim a future that was once very bright in Philadelphia before a disastrous 2020 season led to the end of his time with the Eagles.
The Colts finished last season with wildcard entry into the postseason after finishing second in AFC South division. They lost to the Buffalo Bills in the wildcard playoff. The team hopes to hit the ground running and get another playoff berth this season too
