The Indianapolis Colts won this weekend’s game against the Tennessee Titans, but they suffered a pretty brutal personnel loss as rookie quarterback Anthony Richardson suffered a pretty brutal shoulder injury that will keep him out for as long as a month. And it looks like the team is already working on some plans to add depth to the quarterback position as a result.

According to a report from league insider Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network, the Indianapolis Colts are working out several veteran quarterbacks in an effort to bolster their quarterback position.

“With Anthony Richardson sidelined, sources say the #Colts worked out a group of veteran QBs, including Kellen Mond, Ian Book, Holton Ahlers, and Trace McSorley,” Garafolo said in a post on X, the social media website formerly known as Twitter.

Obviously, none of these players are big-time stars – at least at the NFL level – but it’s clear that the Colts are intent on adding depth to the position, and the NFL world had plenty to say about it on Twitter as a result.

Obviously, Gardner Minshew will serve as the Colts starting quarterback with Richardson sidelined, but one of these guys will likely be added to the roster to add some depth.
