The Indianapolis Colts truly don’t know who their starting quarterback will be on Sept. 12, one month from Thursday, when the Seattle Seahawks arrive for their Week 1 game. It could be Carson Wentz, currently sidelined with a foot injury that appears to have turned in a positive direction in the past few days. It could be Jacob Eason, the 2020 fourth-round draft pick — and one-time five-star recruit — who is coming off what amounted to a redshirt season as a rookie. And it could be Sam Ehlinger, the former Texas QB who was more Bronko Nagurski in college than Brett Favre but who is impressing with each day at Colts camp.
