Update: Richardson has been ruled out for the rest of the game.

Update: Richardson is being evaluated for a concussion. Gardner Minshew is in the game for Indianapolis.

The Indianapolis Colts are taking on the Houston Texans in Week 2. Dual threat quarterback Anthony Richardson already has two rushing touchdowns in the game, but was spotted heading into the medical tent. After a brief evaluation he was taken back to the locker room for further evaluation of an apparent injury.

Before the injury, Richardson was having a solid game. He was 6-of-10 passing for 56 yards and then added 35 yards on three carries with two touchdowns. It is his second career game, and came into this one off a loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars in his debut.

While he is sidelined, Gardner Minshew will take over under center. Sam Ehlinger is on hand as the team’s emergency quarterback with the new NFL rules, should the need arise for one. Minshew has completed his first two passes for 51 yards.
