Colts QB Carson Wentz’s status after spraining both ankles vs. Rams
Indianapolis Colts quarterback Carson Wentz didn’t just suffer one ankle sprain on Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams. Wentz actually suffered two ankle sprains in the 27-24 loss, Colts head coach Frank Reich confirmed Monday.
Reich says it’s too early to tell if Wentz will be able to play in the Week 3 matchup against the Tennessee Titans.
Wentz had to leave the Week 2 defeat in the fourth quarter after getting hit awkwardly. He was replaced by Jacob Eason, who promptly threw a game-sealing interception to drop the Colts to 0-2 on the season.

It has been a rough start to Wentz’s career in Indianapolis. After a disastrous 2020 season resulted in a trade to the Colts from the Philadelphia Eagles, the quarterback underwent foot surgery during training camp and also spent time on the COVID-19 list. He was very open about not getting vaccinated.
While Wentz was able to return surprisingly fast from his foot surgery, now he’s already dealing with several other foot injuries. This isn’t ideal as he tries to bounce back from that wretched 2020 campaign, and being 0-2 doesn’t help either.
Let’s hope Carson Wentz is okay and will be able to suit up for this upcoming game, or at the very least only misses one outing.
