  Quarterback Carson Wentz 'optimistic' after return to Indianapolis Colts practice Monday Indianapolis Colts QB Carson Wentz did not participate in 11-on-11 portion of practice but took most of 7-on-7 snaps after missing three weeks."I'm optimistic but we'll see how it responds," Wentz said after practice. "As long as there's nothing I can do to make it worse, I've played through a lot worse.

Any pick-six is a notable event, but it’s particularly remarkable to see one player record two interceptions for touchdowns in a single game.
