According to Ian Rapoport, the Colts are planning on starting Wentz and giving him a go under center. If he’s unable to play at a high level, Indy “has contingency plans” to make a switch.
The #Colts plan to start QB Carson Wentz (ankles) tomorrow vs. the #Titans, sources say. No setbacks and Wentz is pushing to play, so he’s expected to give it a go. The team has contingency plans in case he gets out there and can’t play to the proper level.

It’s going to be very interesting to see what Wentz is capable of doing Sunday against the Titans. We know he’s banged up and has issues with both ankles.
However, the team is apparently confident that he’s going to be able to play at some kind of competent level.

We’ll see how it all shakes out against Tennessee, but fans of the Colts at least have a little bit of hope and optimism going into the game.
