Carson Wentz of the Indianapolis Colts is battling with two sprained ankles.
Carson Wentz of the Indianapolis Colts is in danger of missing his team’s crucial Week 3 divisional matchup against the Tennessee Titans due to two sprained ankles.
Wentz suffered the ankle injuries during Sunday’s loss to the Los Angeles Rams, according to Colts head coach Frank Reich. Wentz suffered the most serious injury to his right ankle late in the fourth quarter when quarterback attempted to scramble and was tackled by Rams defensive lineman Aaron Donald.
After limping to the Colts’ sideline, Wentz did not return to the game. The quarterback hurt his left ankle earlier in the game, according to Reich.
Reich told reporters, “I know Carson has a high pain threshold.” “When you have a pocket passer, it has less of an impact on his game than when you have a mobility quarterback. That isn’t a difficult task.
“From what I’ve seen of Carson, he’s a quick healer and a tough guy. He’ll play if there’s a chance he can play with these ankle sprains. It’s a tremendously important game.”
Coach Reich: Carson Wentz sprained both ankles on Sunday; it’s too early to say whether he’ll be ready for Week 3.

Through two games, Wentz has completed 45 of his 69 pass attempts for 498 yards, three touchdowns, and an interception. He’s been sacked six times and hit another 21 times in his first two games.
If Wentz is ruled out of the AFC South matchup, second-year quarterback Jacob Eason is slated to start against the Titans.
Reich stated, “If Jacob needs to play, Jacob will be ready.” “The circumstance he found himself in [late in Sunday’s game against the Rams]was as difficult as they come. That is something I can tell you from personal experience. If he has to be, he’ll be ready.”
Since 2011, the Colts haven’t opened a season with a 0-3 record.
