QB - IND
This Week Outlook
Sam Ehlinger is expected to start in Week 18 for the Colts against the Texans.
Colts interim coach Jeff Saturday made the announcement and said that Nick Foles is "really sore" after injuring his ribs on Sunday against the Giants. Ehlinger threw for 60 yards and a touchdown taking over for Foles this past week. The Colts have one game remaining in this very disappointing season.
Sam Ehlinger completed nine of 14 pass attempts for 60 passing yards and one touchdown while also rushing once for 12 rushing yards in the Colts' 38-10 Week 17 loss to the Giants.
Ehlinger was unable to find much room to operate after taking over for starting quarterback Nick Foles behind center, averaging just 6.7 yards per completion on the day. Ehlinger may be in line to start the team's Week 18 season finale if Foles (ribs) is unable to be cleared ahead of the team's home matchup against the Houston Texans to close out the season.
Sam Ehlinger is expected to be the backup to Nick Foles for Monday's game against the Chargers.
Matt Ryan was not only benched, but he was demoted to the third-string quarterback behind both Foles and Ehlinger. The Colts offense will be very tough to trust outside of Michael Pittman Jr.
Sam Ehlinger is officially inactive for the Colts’ Week 13 matchup against the Cowboys on Sunday night.
Ehlinger is once again inactive and has not seen game action since Week 9 against the Patriots. He does not hold fantasy value in the post-Reich era and should be on waivers, barring a Matt Ryan injury.
Newly-named head coach Jeff Saturday has announced that Sam Ehlinger will start their Week 10 matchup with the Raiders.
Ehlinger really struggled in Week 9 against New England, but his brand-new head coach quickly named him the starter for their next game against Las Vegas. The quarterback has experienced some growing pains as most do early in their career, but the Raiders' defense has been prone to give up big games to opposing quarterbacks, so this could be a chance for Ehlinger to bounce back.
