Indianapolis Colts quarterback Carson Wentz is out indefinitely due to a foot injury he suffered Thursday toward the end of practice, ESPN's Adam Schefter and Mike Wells report.

The injury involves a bone and a ligament, and the Colts are bracing for the possibility of surgery, according to NFL Network's Michael Silver. Wentz also felt a "pop," Silver adds.

The Colts' newcomer is set to visit foot specialist Robert Anderson and should receive a clearer timeline for his return afterward, sources told NFL Network's Mike Garafolo and Ian Rapoport.

However, the quarterback's injury is not expected to be season-ending at the moment, Schefter adds.

Wentz arrived in Indianapolis this offseason through a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles. The Colts coughed up a 2021 third-round pick plus a 2022 second-round pick that could turn into a first-rounder based on how many snaps Wentz plays.

Wentz has battled injuries throughout his career, but he was an MVP candidate in 2017 before tearing his ACL late in the year. He struggled last season en route to a demotion, which accelerated his exit from Philadelphia.

Second-year signal-caller Jacob Eason led the starting offense Friday in Wentz's absence, while rookie Sam Ehlinger served as the backup.
