Richardson, who the Colts took fourth overall in this year’s NFL Draft, sprained an AC joint in the shoulder against the Tennessee Titans  Oct. 8. 

After getting multiple opinions on the injury from doctors, team officials and Richardson decided surgery is the best option for the long-term future of the Florida product. 

“After consultation with our medical staff, Anthony and those close to him, it has been determined that he will undergo surgery to repair his injured shoulder, which will end his season,” Irsay posted on X, formerly Twitter. 

Richardson’s rookie year ends with a 2-2 record as a starter. He passed for 577 yards with three touchdowns and one interception, while rushing for 136 yards on 25 attempts with four touchdowns.
