Jack Mewhort Reportedly Believed To Have A Torn ACL

Jack Mewhort's 2016 NFL season might be over before it started.

The former Ohio State offensive lineman reportedly tore his ACL during the Indianapolis Colts' preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Saturday night.

Mewhort was expected to start at guard for Indianapolis.

Mewhort was a second-round pick by the Colts out of Ohio State in the 2014 NFL Draft. Indianapolis opens its 2016 season on Sept. 11 against the Lions. Update (3:42 p.m.): Despite earlier reports, Mewhort is believed to not need surgery and could only miss two to four weeks.
