BREAKING: Colts QB Anthony Richardson Will Undergo Season-Ending Shoulder Injury

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Anthony Richardson is likely to miss the rest of the regular season and will undergo shoulder surgery in the “next week or so”, team owner Jim Irsay told ESPN’s Stephen Holder.

Richardson, the Colts’ No. 4 overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, suffered an AC joint sprain in his right throwing shoulder during the second quarter of the Colts’ Week 5 game against the Tennessee Titans.

“The most likelihood is he’s probably going to be gone for the year,” Irsay said. “I mean, it’s not definite but [he] probably misses this year and we’re going to have to contend with that factor.” on Monday.

“There’s debate going, but it’s probably going to lead toward surgery in the next week or so,” Irsay said. “We’re just trying to figure out exactly how and when and what we want to do and what Anthony wants to do.”

The Colts lost on Sunday to the Jacksonville Jaguars, 37-20. They are now 3-3 and host the Cleveland Browns in Week 7. Backup QB Gardner Minshew will be the starting quarterback for the remainder of the season.
