No lock to start if Wentz sits
Eason saw fewer reps with the Colts' first-team offense than practice squad quarterback Brett Hundley at Wednesday's practice, which could suggest the latter is the top candidate to start Sunday's game in Tennessee if Carson Wentz (ankles) is inactive, Mike Chappell of Fox 59 Indianapolis reports.
Wentz didn't practice Wednesday after spraining both of his ankles in last week's loss to the Rams, which doesn't inspire much early confidence about his availability for the Week 3 matchup. Even though Eason already possesses a spot on the 40-man roster and has recent draft capital (2020 fourth-round selection) working in his favor, head coach Frank Reich may favor the experience that Hundley -- who has appeared in 18 games through seven professional seasons -- offers at the position. Eason, meanwhile, didn't make his NFL debut until stepping in on the Colts' final drive last week for the injured Wentz, completing two of five attempts for 25 yards and an interception.
