Wentz not limited in return from injury
Carson Wentz made his debut for the Indianapolis Colts as the starting QB for the team’s opener in the 2021-22 season against the Seattle Seahawks. He had to go through surgery after getting injured in the team camp en route to the current run.
Wentz has played at the top of his game as he stepped into the field for the Colts. The team had plans to sit the star out for six weeks, but then they wanted to see him play his big game and that led to a good show for the QB.
After practice prior to the game, coach Frank Reich believes that there is still a lot of hope for Wentz to show his worth in the opener. He wasn’t wrong on that call and the Colts enjoyed every bit of the QB’s debut.
‘As far as what he can do, he can do everything’, the Colts coach said. ‘What will we actually call? Will we keep the reins on a little bit? Probably. Probably so. I just think that makes sense. I just think we'll manage it. We'll be smart’.
The coach believes in what Wentz can do for the Colts, and while he does not feel 100% healthy prior to the game, what the fans saw from him was far from the least that they could expect from an injured star.
Having Wentz on the field is a win for the Colts. This Week 1 was new to him as he came in as a starter for a team that has seen five new starters for five years in a row. That makes his spot as the lead QB even better than before.
The Colts landed Wentz from the Philadelphia Eagles last February and was reunited with Reich. While the star had a lot of injuries long before he came to the Colts, this promise of a better run with Reich is a sight to behold for the team.
While there is no timetable for Wentz’s injury, this only means that the team would not play in straight games. The Colts would surely sit him out in games that are not that crucial to the 2021-22 season, and this lets him rest and recover.
