Few teams have been bit as hard by the injury bug as the Indianapolis Colts this summer. After star wide receiver T.Y. Hilton suffered a neck injury over the weekend, they got potentially worse news this morning.
According to ESPN NFL insider Mike Wells via Adam Schefter, Colts left tackle Sam Tevi suffered a torn ACL. He is officially out for the season.
Tevi was slated to be the Colts’ starting tackle this year after several solid years with the Los Angeles Chargers. He started 14 games for the Chargers at left tackle last season.
Tevi was signed in order to replace 10-year starting left tackle Anthony Castonzo. Castonzo retired after the 2020 season.

The Indianapolis Colts started training camp without starting quarterback Carson Wentz and offensive guard Quenton Nelson. Both of them had to undergo surgery for injuries, but have made full recoveries.
Unfortunately, this past weekend has been a bit rough. The Colts lost star wide receiver T.Y. Hilton to a neck injury and are waiting with baited breath for news on his test results.
Last year the Colts went 11-5 and made the playoffs with Philip Rivers at quarterback. Rivers retired after the season, and the Colts quickly made their move to get Wentz and reunite him with head coach Frank Reich.
With Sam Tevi out now though, the Colts might be hard-pressed to keep Wentz upright.
Will this injury doom the Colts’ season?
