Saturday: Colts will be patient with Wentz's injury (1:17)

Jeff Saturday says the Colts will be patient with Carson Wentz after he has surgery on his left foot. (1:17)

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Carson Wentz is going to miss five to 12 weeks after having surgery on his foot. This is a wide range of time, and it means he could be back for the team's regular-season opener or not until midseason. Depending on how long it takes -- and whether a setback happens that makes it longer -- the Colts might need to go out and get some help at the position.

They already signed Brett Hundley late last week, but that was before they knew how much time Wentz was likely to miss. Hundley joins a quarterback room that is light on experience, with 2020 fourth-round pick Jacob Eason and rookie sixth-round pick Sam Ehlinger the top options. "The job is Jacob's right now," Reich told reporters on Monday.

It's possible Indianapolis could find itself surveying the landscape of available quarterbacks, via free agents or through a trade. Here's a look at some of that landscape, should they decide to go that way.
