Carson Wentz injury update: Colts’ quarterback leaves Week 2 game against Rams with ankle injury

Carson Wentz’s injury woes continued into Week 2, as the Colts starter was sidelined late in the game with an apparent ankle injury.

Wentz played most of the game, going 20 for 31 with 247 yards and a touchdown and interception before leaving the game in the fourth. He handed the reins over to Jacob Eason, who promptly threw a pick on his first series in the game.

Eason played the final few minutes of the contest, and went 2 for 5 with 15 yards and the interception in the 30-24 loss.

Colts coach Frank Reich said after the game there was “no chance” Wentz could have returned, but didn’t provide any further specifics.

Wentz came to Indianapolis from Philadelphia by way of trade in the offseason and already got Colts fans nervous after sustaining a foot injury in the offseason that required surgery, though he missed less time than originally expected.

Between Wentz’s absence and Eason’s poor play, the Colts dropped to 0-2. They head to Tennessee next week for a matchup against the Titans, where they’ll be vying for their first win of the season.
