Colts place G Quenton Nelson (ankle) on IR

The Indianapolis Colts placed three-time Pro Bowl left guard Quenton Nelson on injured reserve Saturday.

Nelson is nursing an ankle injury and will miss at least the next three games.

Nelson, 25, will see his streak of consecutive starts come to a halt on Sunday against the host Miami Dolphins (1-2). He started 51 consecutive games to begin his career after being taken by the Colts with the sixth overall pick of the 2018 NFL Draft.

Also on Saturday, Indianapolis (0-3) elevated safety Ibraheim Campbell and quarterback Brett Hundley to the active roster from the practice squad.

Campbell, 29, has recorded 116 tackles, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery in 58 career games with the Cleveland Browns (2015-17), Houston Texans (2017), Dallas Cowboys (2018), New York Jets (2018), Green Bay Packers (2018-19) and Colts.

Hundley, 28, has thrown for 1,902 yards with nine touchdowns and 13 interceptions in 18 career games with the Packers (2016-17) and Arizona Cardinals (2019).

Colts elevate QB Brett Hundley to active roster

The Indianapolis Colts addressed their quarterback situation Saturday by elevating Brett Hundley from the practice squad to the active roster.

The move can be construed as insurance with fellow quarterback Carson Wentz nursing sprains in both ankles. Wentz, however, reportedly is expected to start Sunday as the Colts (0-2) visit the Tennessee Titans (1-1) in Nashville, Tenn.

Hundley reportedly took first-team reps at quarterback this week in place of second-year quarterback Jacob Eason. Wentz missed the first two practices before being a limited participant on Friday.

Wentz, 28, was injured during the Colts’ 27-24 setback to the Los Angeles Rams last Sunday. The second injury to his ankles forced Wentz to be a spectator during Indianapolis’ final two series of the game.

Hundley, 28, last played in the NFL with the Arizona Cardinals in 2019. He has completed 199 of 337 passes for 1,902 yards with nine touchdowns and 13 interceptions in 18 career games with the Green Bay Packers and Cardinals.

Hundley went 3-6 as a starter for the Packers in 2017 while Aaron Rodgers was sidelined with a broken collarbone.

Colts QB Carson Wentz (ankles) returns to practice

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Carson Wentz answered two missed practices this week by participating in Friday’s session.

Wentz’s availability for the Week 3 trip to face the Tennessee Titans (1-1) is unclear, although head coach Frank Reich said the Colts typically use Friday practice as the measuring stick for gameday readiness.

The 28-year-old is nursing injuries to both his ankles sustained in the Colts’ 27-24 setback to the Los Angeles Rams last Sunday. The second injury forced Wentz to be a spectator during Indianapolis’ final two series of the game.

Journeyman Brett Hundley and second-year quarterback Jacob Eason are available should Wentz be unable to play on Sunday for the Colts (0-2).

Wentz has completed 45 of 69 passes for 498 yards with three touchdowns and one interception this season.

Colts sign veteran QB Brett Hundley

The Indianapolis Colts signed veteran quarterback Brett Hundley on Saturday.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The move comes on the heels of starting QB Carson Wentz suffering a foot injury Thursday at practice. Wentz, whom the Colts acquired from the Philadelphia Eagles in the offseason, is out indefinitely, and surgery is a potential option.

Hundley, 28, will compete with 2021 sixth-round pick Sam Ehlinger and undrafted free agent Jalen Morton for a spot behind 2020 fourth-round pick Jacob Eason.

A fifth-round pick of the Green Bay Packers in 2015, Hundley last played in the NFL with the Arizona Cardinals in 2019. In 18 career games — nine starts — with the Packers and Cardinals, Hundley has completed 199 of 337 passes for 1,902 yards, nine touchdowns and 13 interceptions.

The Colts also signed free-agent defensive tackle Joey Ivie on Saturday. A seventh-round pick by the Dallas Cowboys in 2017, Ivie, 26, appeared in eight combined games with the Kansas City Chiefs and Tennessee Titans in 2019.
