The Indianapolis Colts had their first afternoon practice of training camp on Saturday at Grand Park Sports Campus in Westfield, Ind. All of the buzz surrounded the injury situation of Carson Wentz and how it now seems more than likely that the Colts’ starting quarterback will be out for the preseason, and possibly longer.
