Colts G Jack Mewhort Won’t Need Surgery For Knee Injury, Out 2-4 Weeks

Update:

Colts owner Jim Irsay announced Sunday that G Jack Mewhort will not require surgery on his knee injury, according to initial tests.

Despite a report from last night that Mewhort had a torn ACL and was likely done for the year, Irsay says that he is expected to be out 2-4 weeks.

———-

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Colts G Jack Mewhort is believed to have suffered a torn ACL during Saturday’s preseason game.

This would be a huge loss for the Colts and their offensive line unit, as Mewhort is a key figure for them up front.

Assuming Mewhort does, in fact, have a torn ACL, the Colts will likely place him on injured reserve and bring in another player at some point in the near future.

Mewhort, 24, was taken in the second round of the 2014 draft by the Colts. He’s currently in the third year of his four-year, $3,573,801 rookie contract and stands to make base salaries of $744,891 and $907,337 over the next two years.

In 2015, Mewhort appeared in all 16 games for the Colts and was rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 9 guard out of 81 qualifying players.
