Indianapolis Colts left guard Quenton Nelson will have surgery to correct a foot injury and is expected to be out on a similar timeline to that of quarterback Carson Wentz, head coach Frank Reich told the media on Tuesday.
Nelson suffered a foot injury during Monday’s practice and was seen wearing a boot at Tuesday’s training camp practice. Reich revealed the injury is coincidentally the same as Wentz.
NEWS: Frank Reich says Quenton Nelson has a bone issue similar to Carson Wentz’s and will undergo surgery today. Similar timeline to Wentz.
On Wentz, surgery was “best case scenario.” No further damage discovered.
Reich: “Can’t make this up.”

Not only have the Colts potentially lost their starting quarterback for the start of the season, now the same chance applies to their All-Pro guard.
The Colts are also down center Ryan Kelly, who is dealing with an elbow injury and left tackle Eric Fisher, who is on the PUP list as he works back from his Achilles injury. Danny Pinter didn’t practice Tuesday with an undisclosed injury.
Filling in for Nelson in the meantime is likely to be a mix of Chris Reed and Jake Eldrenkamp.
