Panthers HC Steve Wilks said Wednesday that QB P.J. Walker will start Sunday's game against the Buccaneers. Walker threw for just 60 yards before leading the Week 6 loss with a neck issue. It doesn't sound like the team is concerned about that injury. The Panthers also designated QB Sam Darnold to return from IR Wednesday, though we'll see if he's ready for a spot on the active roster this week. Jacob Eason served as Walker's backup in Week 6.

Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey rushed 13 times for 69 yards and caught 7 of 8 targets for 89 more in Sunday's loss to the Rams. His 158 total yards constituted 77.8% of Carolina's total net yards for the game. No one else on the team collected more than 22 yards. Starting QB P.J. Walker managed just 60 passing yards for the game, with Jacob Eason coming on for 59 more (primarily thanks to a 49-yard completion to McCaffrey). We'll see about Carolina's QB situation for Week 7. D.J. Moore was the only other Panther to see more than 2 targets. He caught 3 of 7 for just 7 yards.

Panthers QB P.J. Walker was knocked out of Sunday's loss to the Rams with a 4th-quarter neck injury. QB Jacob Eason mopped up, completing 3 of 5 passes for 59 yards and a pick. We'll see if Walker is available for Week 7 -- and if Carolina sticks with him. Walker mustered just 60 yards on 10-of-16 passing today. QBs Baker Mayfield and Sam Darnold are unlikely to be ready for Week 7 with their ankle injuries.

Colts WR Carson Wentz (ankles) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. He hasn't yet been ruled out for this weekend's game vs. the Titans -- but he's looking like a long shot. The Colts are reportedly considering rotating QBs Jacob Eason and Brett Hundley if Wentz is out.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero hears that there's "still hope" that Colts QB Carson Wentz (ankle) will be able to play vs. the Titans this weekend. Pelissero adds that it might come down to a game-time decision. Practice-squad QB Brett Hundley reportedly took most of the 1st-team reps in Wednesday's practice and might split snaps with QB Jacob Eason on Sunday if Wentz is out, per Pelissero. It's obviously a situation to avoid in fantasy lineups.

Colts QB Carson Wentz is dealing with a high sprain to his right ankle and a low sprain to the left. The high-ankle sprain is a bigger concern, although Wentz still believes he has a chance to play vs. the Titans this weekend. “A lot of treatment," Wentz said Wednesday. "Throwing the kitchen sink at it trying to get healthy.” We'll track his progress over the next few days, but Wentz shouldn't be in your Week 3 fantasy plans. QB Jacob Eason will get the start if Wentz is out.

Colts QB Carson Wentz injured both of his ankles in Sunday's loss to the Rams, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Wentz is undergoing tests today to determine the severity of the injuries. We'll update his status when we know more. The entire Colts offense would need to be downgraded if they're forced to go with QB Jacob Eason.

Colts QB Carson Wentz was knocked out in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Rams with a right foot or ankle injury. QB Jacob Eason entered and threw an INT on his 2nd pass. We'll update Wentz's status when we know more.

Colts QB Sam Ehlinger is expected to miss 5-6 weeks with a sprained ACL, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That means it'll be Jacob Eason under center for Indianapolis if Carson Wentz isn't ready for the start of the season. Eason has had an up-and-down training camp and completed 10 of 14 passes for just 74 yards in the final preseason game on Friday.

Colts rookie QB Sam Ehlinger took some 1st-team reps on Tuesday for the 1st time. "Really, that wasn’t Jacob (Eason) doing anything wrong. This is a meritocracy, and Sam's looked good, so we decided to split it up," HC Frank Reich explained. "The good news is they both looked sharp today ... we’ll continue to split those reps up." Eason remains the favorite to start for the Colts if QB Carson Wentz (foot) isn't ready for the start of the season, but he certainly doesn't have the job locked up. Of course, neither Eason nor Ehlinger is a fantasy option.

Stephen Holder of The Athletic reports that Colts QB Carson Wentz is sitting out Friday's workout with a foot injury. We'll keep an eye out for more info on that situation. In Wentz's absence, 2nd-year QB Jacob Eason will be taking 1st-team reps. We'll see if the former Day 3 pick can nail down the backup job for 2021. That could bring opportunity behind a starter with Wentz's injury history and 2020 struggles.

Update: ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Wentz is "out indefinitely" with his foot issue. He'll undergo testing to determine the severity.

The Colts selected Washington QB Jacob Eason in the 4th round of the 2020 NFL Draft. Eason looks the part. He’s 6’6, 231 pounds and might just have the biggest arm of anyone in this year’s QB class. But his accuracy comes and goes, and he struggles under pressure. “He’s the prototypical bust,” an anonymous scout told The Athletic’s Bob McGinn. “He’s big and he’s tall and he’s pretty lookin’. He can throw it through a brick wall. But knowing how to play the position, having poise, mental processing … it’s just not there.” A big-time high school recruit, Eason started as a true freshman at Georgia back in 2016, completing 55% of his passes, averaging 6.6 yards per attempt and tossing 16 TDs vs. 8 INTs. After hurting his knee early in the 2017 season, he lost the starting job to Jake Fromm. Eason then transferred to Washington, where he threw for 3,132 yards, 23 TDs and 8 INTs on a 64% completion rate and 7.7 yards per attempt this past year. He ranked just 22nd among draft-eligible QBs in Pro Football Focus’ adjusted completion rate and 2nd-to-last in passing grade under pressure. Eason needs development and will get it in Indianapolis, where he'll sit behind Philip Rivers for at least 2020.
