Colts’ bold plan for Carson Wentz amid injury woes

Colts, Carson Wentz

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Carson Wentz was able to play in Week 3 against the Tennessee Titans, but it was quite clear he’s not 100 percent healthy. He was not as mobile as he used to be, with his injuries in both his ankles limiting him.

Despite his condition, though, the Colts apparently have no plans of shutting him down. Instead, the team is hoping to increase his workload gradually without the need for him to miss any games.

According to a report by ESPN, the plan is for Wentz to practice more heading into Week 4. Before their Week 3 showdown with the Titans last Sunday, the 28-year-old did not practice with the team until Friday. With that said, the Colts are hoping to get him to practice as early as Thursday this time around just to get him back to game condition bit by bit.

“I am very confident, just how quickly it is already from not really even being able to walk [the] first two days [last] week to playing [against the Titans],” Wentz said of his injury. “I’m very confident that we can progress this thing along and be myself.”

As mentioned, Carson Wentz sprained both his ankles. He suffered the said injuries in Week 2 against the Los Angeles Rams, sustaining a high-ankle sprain in his right ankle and an inversion sprain in his left ankle after a tackle from Aaron Donald.

The Colts are certainly hoping that Wentz recovers sooner rather than later, especially with the team still winless after three games.
