Carson Wentz foot injury (Edit: requires surgery, out for preseason)


Recommended Posts

Man - Yolo - nice job getting this up was just finishing my thread and looked one last time - trying not to duplicate.

 

I hate this for Frank, but why am I not surprised Wentz is missing time already.

I love clauses like that.  If the Colts are up big in a game you can bet Eason will be seeing the field. If it gets late in the season and the math is super close it will be interesting to see if the Colts will have snap count shenanigans to keep their 1st rounder.

 

Based on last year's play count, and accounting for an additional regular season game, the Colts will run ~1,100 plays this year. Wentz needs to be in ~770 of them to hit the 70% threshold if the Colts are a playoff team, which they probably should be. Last year they ran 64.5 plays a game on average. At that rate, he can miss a little over 5 games. 4 should be ok, 5 starts to get dicey and 6 is probably an issue.  If he misses 4 legitimately and week 17 has no meaning for them that gets to be a fun scenario. The Colts would surely sit Wentz to keep him healthy and want to run as many offensive plays as possible that day. It would also matter how many times they brought in Eason to mop up.  For example, if they are kneeling out a clock, Eason should be doing that. Say they win 11 games and kneel it out all 11 times, that's 33 snaps. That's about half a game worth of snaps in total and could make a HUGE difference a the end of the year.

Yeah, that's a tough schedule to start with.  I have to believe they are putting calls out to veteran FA QBs out there today.  There's no way they can feel too confident with Eason or Ellinger for those games if need be....

If he misses 4 weeks Week 17 will probably be pretty important.  Just saying.

Holy cow. Regardless of Wentz status this is a brutal start to the season for the Colts. 

 

 

I like that as Indy with an old form Wentz (SB year) could be problems for us later as could be a whoops loss.  They were close in that playoff game.

 

A bunch of losses would be nice even if he does come around and healthy by week 4-6.  It could also be nothing and be healthy in a week or two.

 

It is remarkable though he’s as durable as Mr. Glass from unbreakable.

Maybe, maybe not. They could have a WC wrapped up and know they are going on the road for example.

 

Also, if he misses 4 weeks and they know they are out of it the threshold goes from 70 - 75% at which point he'd sit the last two games.

I do remember when Bills fans held up Wentz as an example as to why the Bills will never go anywhere.

Truthfully I was never a fan of his game.

 

How do you like me(him) now?

 

I don't see how his injury status contributes to the player he was on his way to becoming.  The season he got hurt, he was arguably performing at a top 5 QB level.  It looks like he wasn't' recovered last year and this might now be a sign of an ongoing injury latent career.  Regardless, I don't think this takes away from the player he was or could have become.

Honestly with that schedule it wouldn't be shocking if they started 1-4 even with him healthy.

I'm not saying he is a horrible QB.  I just personally think his play back then was heavily influenced by the team.

Thus the Nick Foles success.
