Due to a shoulder injury, Colts quarterback Anthony Richardson is predicted to miss Sunday’s rematch with the Jaguars.

 

The Indianapolis Colts are aware that Anthony Richardson will miss the team’s game against Jacksonville next weekend due to a shoulder injury.

The rest is still unclear.

Gardner Minshew will make his second start of the season, this time against his former team, according to coach Shane Steichen, one day after the rookie quarterback suffered an AC joint injury in his right shoulder during an awkward 4-yard run against Tennessee.

Regarding the most recent injury, Steichen remarked, “It’s tough.
“You know a guy gets injured the way he gets injured and he’s obviously a very talented player and it’s tough,”. But as you well know, we have every confidence that Gardner will take over and carry on as usual.
“.

Three of the four Colts games he has played in have ended in victories; two of those games were started in Richardson’s place due to injury.
He has also completed nearly 69 percent of his passes without throwing an interception.
He played for the Jaguars (3-2) during his first two NFL seasons.

 

Richardson’s long-term health is more of an issue for Indy (3-2).

 

With a bruised knee and a sore ankle, he missed the final minute of his professional debut, a loss to the Jaguars. He entered the concussion protocol during the first half of a Week 2 victory at Houston before sitting out a Week 3 overtime victory at Baltimore while still in the protocol.

The throwing shoulder is now the issue. Steichen stated that the Colts are still gathering medical data before announcing a timetable or discussing available treatments.

When asked if surgery or going to injured reserve were options, he replied, “We’re still evaluating all that stuff and once we get more information on it, we’ll let you know.”.

 

If Richardson enters injured reserve, he would be out for at least four weeks.

Richardson was chosen by Indianapolis with the No. His performance at the league’s yearly scouting combine earned him the No. 4 overall pick in the draft in April. And even though Richardson started just 13 college games, some saw the former Florida prep standout and Gators star as a project, but Richardson has transitioned to the NFL relatively easily.

He has thrown for 577 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception, but his completion percentage (59.7 percent) could be higher.
In addition, he has carried the ball 25 times for 136 yards and four touchdowns, making him the first quarterback since the Super Bowl to score on a run in each of his first three NFL contests.

Richardson will be attempting to break the Colts’ rookie quarterback rushing record as well as the single-season franchise record for the most games with a TD pass and a TD run if he does return this season.

He must first become and remain healthy, though, in order to accomplish that.

Following their Week 1 match, Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence advised Richardson to take care of himself. Since then, Colts supporters have applauded 6-foot-4, 244-pound Richardson whenever he slides or runs out of bounds.

Steichen doesn’t, however, want to rewrite Richardson’s game from scratch.

He is a dynamic runner, which is obviously a big part of his game, according to Steichen.
“You never want injuries to happen, but he’s had some huge runs in games and made some big plays.
I’m aware that it’s a requirement of the game, but we still need to be wise with him and keep evaluating that information.
“.
