Watch Now:

Minshew will head into Week 1 as the Colts' backup quarterback after head coach Shane Steichen announced Tuesday that Anthony Richardson will open the regular season as the starter.

Steichen's decision isn't a major surprise, as the Colts' goal heading into training camp was to get Richardson, the No. 4 overall draft pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, ready to stake his claim to the starting role. The fact that Steichen made the announcement after just one preseason game is more of a surprise, but the rookie has apparently shown enough in camp and turned in a decent performance in the Colts' exhibition opener. Unless Richardson gets hurt or fails to show much growth over his first several starts, Minshew doesn't look as though he'll be in store for much playing time in 2023.
