Wentz (ankles) won't practice Wednesday, Mike Wells of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: The QB noted Wednesday that both of his ankles are still sore, with the right one being of greater concern. Though there's hope that Wentz's injured ankles could respond to treatment in the next few days, coach Frank Reich suggested that the team has to approach things as though the veteran QB won't be available this weekend, per Kevin Bowen of 107.5 The Fan Indianapolis. As long as Wentz is sidelined, Jacob Eason will handle added practice reps, while Brett Hundley is a candidate to be elevated from the Colts' practice squad

Wentz, who is recovering from sprains to both ankles, plans to either take part in practice or work out on the side Wednesday as a test of his health, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
Analysis: The workout should provide an early gauge of whether Wentz is trending toward playing or sitting out the Colts' Week 3 matchup Sunday in Tennessee. According to Garofolo, Wentz was donning a walking boot -- it's unclear on which foot -- as of Monday, but he'll ditch the protection at least temporarily Wednesday during the workout. If Wentz can't go this weekend, the Colts would likely turn the offense over to second-year signal-caller Jacob Eason, who threw an interception among his five pass attempts on Indianapolis' final drive in relief of the injured starter in last weekend's 27-24 loss to the Rams.

The Eagles placed Ertz (undisclosed) on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday.
Analysis: Ertz will need to fully clear the league's protocols for COVID-19 before returning to team facilities or game action, so his status will need to be monitored ahead of next weekend's divisional matchup in Dallas. The veteran tight end hasn't done much through the first two weeks of the season, and he had just one catch for six yards on two targets during Sunday's 17-11 loss to the 49ers. If Ertz were to miss time, the most notable fantasy consequence could simply be that Dallas Goedert would project for a larger workload.

Agholor was on the field for 50 of a possible 58 snaps on offense in Sunday's 25-6 win over the Jets, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports. In the process, the wideout caught all three of his targets for 21 yards.
Analysis: Meanwhile, Jakobi Meyers logged 52 snaps and six targets and Kendrick Bourne was out there for 31 plays and was targeted three times. With RB James White and TEs Jonnu Smith and Hunter Henry also commanding regular targets, Agholor's weekly volume figures to fluctuate in an offense that tends to spread the ball around to multiple targets. That said, it's pretty clear that Agholor is destined for steady playing time this season, health permitting.

Wentz is dealing with injuries to both ankles, not just one, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Analysis: Wentz was forced out of Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Rams in the fourth quarter due to what coach Frank Reich initially described as a rolled right ankle, but it now appears that the quarterback is nursing sprains to both the left and right side. The Colts will have more information to relay about the severity of Wentz's injuries after he undergoes further testing Monday, but for now his availability for Sept. 26's contest against the Titans is uncertain. Jacob Eason completed two of five passes for 15 yards with zero touchdowns and one interception in emergency duty versus Los Angeles.
