Major setback for the Indianapolis Colts as owner provides alarming injury update.

 

Anthony Richardson, the quarterback for the Indianapolis Colts, has missed two games due to injuries and may need shoulder surgery after his outstanding rookie campaign.

The impressive rookie campaign of Anthony Richardson appears to be over.

Owner of the Indianapolis Colts Jim Irsay has disclosed that Anthony Richardson will probably require surgery to end his season.

Richardson left the field in the second quarter of the Colts’ most recent victory over the Tennessee Titans due to a shoulder injury sustained by the promising rookie quarterback.

At the time, a shoulder injury to the 21-year-old was thought to have occurred, though it was not initially considered to be very serious.
However, recent reports indicate that Richardson may have a long-term injury and will likely require surgery, which will likely end his season.

Irsay stated: “He’s most likely going to be away for the entire year.
Although it’s not certain, [he] probably won’t play this year, so we’ll have to deal with that possibility.

The team hoped Richardson would be placed on Injury Reserve, which would keep him out for at least four weeks as he recovered, after his shoulder injury was determined to be a Grade 3 AC joint sprain.
Instead, he has been advised that having surgery is the best course of action, with the goal of returning to the next season in full health.

We are working through the process, according to head coach Shane Steichen.
Going forward, we want to act in his and this organization’s best interests.
We’ll decide when the time is right, as we previously stated, and we’re currently reviewing the procedure.

It would be a major setback for the Colts, who have seen Richardson have a promising start to his NFL career after being selected with the fourth overall pick. Richardson had very little experience going into his rookie season, having started just 13 games in college during a difficult final season with Florida.
