Colts quarterback Anthony Richardson out with shoulder injury


INDIANAPOLIS — Colts quarterback Anthony Richardson will miss Sunday’s game against the Titans with a shoulder injury.

With 4:39 left in the second quarter, Richardson completed a 4-yard run, but was intercepted by Titans linebacker Harold Landry III. Richardson’s right shoulder took the brunt of the blow as he fell to the turf, and he reacted immediately by pointing to his shoulder as he lay on the ground.

After being attended to by the team’s training staff for several minutes, he was helped to his feet and briefly examined in the courtside medical tent before being escorted to the locker room because he could not move his right arm.

Colts tight end Mo Alli-Cox also missed the second half with a concussion.

It’s just the latest injury concern for the fourth overall pick in April’s draft. Richardson injured his right knee in the season opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars and was ejected from the game by coach Shane Steichen in the final few games.

The following week, Richardson suffered a concussion in the second quarter against the Houston Texans and missed the remainder of that game and the following week’s game against the Baltimore Ravens.

Including Sunday’s game, Richardson has played just 12 of a possible 20 quarters for the Colts this season.

Gardner Minshew came on to replace Richardson. Minshew has 25 career starts and was the starter in the Colts’ Week 3 win over the Ravens.
