Monday update: Richardson suffered an AC joint sprain and could miss at least a month, per Ian Rapoport.

Update: Some good news, as Richardson has what the team believes is a AC joint sprain in his throwing shoulder, per Tom Pelissero. He’ll have an MRI still to get a more detailed prognosis, but right now this is probably the best news for Richardson’s outlook.

This is the same injury that Derek Carr suffered and was able to play through. If Richardson does miss time, it doesn’t seem like it will be long if this report is correct.

Update: Anthony Richardson underwent x-rays and they came back negative. While nothing appears to be broken, an x-ray doesn’t show ligament injuries. He’ll likely undergo an MRI on Monday to determine the extent of any damage.

Update: Richardson has been officially ruled out for the rest of the game. We won’t know the extent of the injury for a while, but I wouldn’t bet on him being able to return against the Jaguars next week.

Update: Richardson is questionable to return. That seems like an optimistic designation, but hopefully it means he’s not as bad as it looked.

Update: Richardson appeared to be in real pain and was gingerly holding his arm as he went back to the locker room. It would be a huge surprise to see him return in this game.

Update: Richardson has gone to the locker room for more tests.

Anthony Richardson landed hard on his shoulder on a designed run in the second quarter and quickly pointed to his shoulder. He was in obvious pain as he walked off the field. Gardner Minshew is now in the game.

Richardson was having a good game, completing 9-of-12 passes for 98 yards. The Colts lead 10-6 late in the second quarter.

The Colts rookie quarterback already missed a game with a concussion and has now missed time in three of his four games.
