Unfortunate news in Indianapolis.

Colts starting quarterback Anthony Richardson was initially diagnosed with a Grade 3 AC joint sprain, which will keep him out of action for a month or more, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported today Monday.

On Sunday, Richardson injured his right shoulder in the second quarter of the game against the Tennessee Titans. The rookie QB did not return to the field and it was initially reported that it was actually an AC joint sprain. Additionally, X-rays came back negative, Rapoport reported on Sunday. However, he will undergo an MRI on Monday morning to confirm the news and reveal the severity of the injury, Rapoport reported.

This is just another injury to add to Richardson’s list. In Week 1 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, the 21-year-old hurt his knee late in the game. He was then ruled out for Week 2 against the Houston Texans due to a concussion and also missed Week 3 against the Ravens for the same reason.

The rookie has shown promise so far this season, completing 41 of 72 passes while throwing for 479 yards, three touchdowns and one interception. However, backup quarterback Gardner Minshew will most likely be the man under center in the Colts’ Week 6 game against the Jaguars and now. Minshew is reliable for Indianapolis. When the 27-year-old started for the Colts in Week 3, he had a big win, completing 27 of 44 passes and throwing for 227 yards and a touchdown.

On Sunday, Minshew also led the Colts to another victory over the Titans. Now, with Richardson sidelined for a while, Minshew will have to continue this momentum.
