WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Sam Ehlinger | Colts QB

The Colts have activated Sam Ehlinger from injured reserve.

Ehlinger could immediately be the No. 2 quarterback behind Carson Wentz, and his mobility makes him an ideal backup that can create if forced into action. Indy notably released 2020 fourth-round pick Jacob Eason in a corresponding move.

Sam Ehlinger (knee) is out for five-to-six weeks.

Ehlinger fortunately won’t need surgery after getting injured in the Colts’ final preseason game, but we would assume he’s a strong candidate for the PUP list. This news would lock in Jacob Eason as the Week 1 starter if Carson Wentz (foot) isn’t able to get cleared.

The Colts have selected Texas quarterback Sam Ehlinger with the No. 218 pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Ehlinger started four seasons for a Texas Longhorns team he grew up rooting for, and he had a lot of success in the Big 12, throwing for 11,436 yards and 94 touchdowns while also rushing for 1,903 yards and 33 touchdowns in his career. Ehlinger is a playmaker that can find a way to make plays if he's thrust into action, and the Colts will look to develop his skillset as a reserve quarterback option.
