Colts general manager Chris Ballard is not ready to commit to quarterback Carson Wentz as his starter for the 2022 season.

Ballard made those comments during his season-ending news conference just days after the Colts didn’t make the playoffs and Wentz played two of his worst games to end the season.

The Colts gave up first- and third-round picks in the upcoming draft to acquire Wentz from the Eagles last offseason.

“When we made the decision, after Philip [Rivers] retired and we made the decision to make a move on Carson, at the time of the decision we felt good about it and I still don’t regret the decision at the time,” Ballard said Thursday.

“Sitting here today, just so y’all know, I won’t make a comment on who is going to be here next year and who is not going to be here next year. That’s not fair to any player.”
