The Colts are 2-0 this preseason but are in a bit of a weird spot. While the same concept og a dress rehearsal goes for Indy this week, it’s unclear if they’ll have their QB1 at the helm. Carson Wentz suffered an injury early in training camp, forcing him out of practice until this week. It’s still unsure if he’ll be ready to go by Friday, which means it’ll probably be either Jacob Eason or Sam Ehlinger leading the way for the Colts this week.
