Colts QB Carson Wentz will rest and rehab his foot injury over then next few days, rather than have immediate surgery.
The hope is the rest will allow Wentz to avoid surgery and be on track to play in Week 1 against the Seahawks. If the rest doesn’t immediately help, then surgery may be the answer and it’s unknown how long he would be out for if he does have to get surgery. Jacob Eason I has been getting time running as the first-team quarterback while Wentz is out and the Colts also signed Brett Hundley. At the very least, the connections on offense could be a bit shaky from the outset once Wentz does return and gets the timing down with the offense.
All three are likely on the list as close contacts, as co-offensive coordinator and tight ends coach George Godsey (who is vaccinated) did test positive for Covid. The players should likely see a short stay on the reserve list as just close contacts and if they test negative. Godsey was sent home after his positive test result.
And this was quick: Former Falcons’ standout Devonta Freeman and the Saints now have reached agreement on a one-year deal, per his agent @DrewJRosenhaus. Freeman reunited with his former college teammate, Jameis Winston.
