Titans prep for Colts as Carson Wentz skips practice

Carson Wentz wants to play, but the Indianapolis Colts are unlikely to identify a starting quarterback for their Week 3 visit to the Tennessee Titans until gameday.Wentz is questionable with swelling in both ankles. A right high ankle sprain kept him out of Wednesday’s practice with Jacob Eason and Brett Hundley getting work with the starting offense. Wentz said he can’t recall ever playing in a game without practicing the week prior.Head coach Frank Reich said practicing on Friday is the typical barometer for a player being active on Sunday.Worth consideration: Indianapolis is starting a three-game road swing. A loss Sunday would send the Colts to an 0-3 start with trips to Miami and Baltimore to follow.”Throwing kitchen sink at it trying to get healthy,” Wentz said of his approach to the week.Tennessee is 1-1 and enters after its 33-30 overtime victory last week at Seattle, which helped the Titans recover from a blowout defeat at the hands of the Arizona Cardinals in the opener.Titans coach Mike Vrabel shared his devil-may-care mentality when it comes to prepping for two quarterbacks. He said Wednesday the Titans view Wentz and Eason, who relieved an injured Wentz late in last week’s game, as similar-style quarterbacks.”I don’t think there’s a huge difference in the skillset. They’re going to operate their offense,” Vrabel said. “Their receivers are tough, they’re physical. … They have a lot of dynamic players and the backs can do a lot of different things.”No doubt Vrabel and defensive coordinator Shane Bowen have taken notice of the Colts’ protection issues up front. The group has allowed six sacks and 15 quarterback hits in two games. Wentz was hurt being spun the ground by Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald.”That’s not the way we want to play, especially up front,” Colts center Ryan Kelly said.
