Indianapolis Colts quarterback Carson Wentz had to leave their Week 2 game against the Los Angeles Rams in the fourth quarter after suffering an ankle injury. Wentz was replaced by backup Jacob Eason, and he was promptly picked off by Rams star cornerback Jalen Ramsey late in the game.

Ramsey’s big play sealed a 27-24 victory for the Rams to move them to 2-0 on the season:

While Wentz suffered this injury, there’s some early optimism that it’s not all that serious, though we’ll find out more later:

As Doyel notes, it will be interesting to see the official diagnosis of this injury. Wentz has had a ton of injury problems in his career, including right before this season. He underwent foot surgery during training camp but was able to return for the Colts’ season opener.

Indianapolis traded for Wentz in the offseason after Philip Rivers retired. The Colts are hoping for the quarterback to bounce back after his Philadelphia Eagles stint ended in disastrous fashion, but the early results have been a mixed bag. In addition to this injury, Wentz threw a comical interception on a shovel pass down by the goal line earlier in the loss to Los Angeles, which dropped Indy to 0-2 on the season.
