INDIANAPOLIS — According to Colts owner Jim Irsay, quarterback Anthony Richardson will "probably" miss the rest of the regular season.

On Monday,Irsay told ESPN Richardson could undergo surgery in the next week or so.

The quarterback suffered a damaged AC joint to his shoulder after last Sunday's game against the Tennessee Titans. However, his MRI showed that the labrum in his right shoulder is not torn and his ligaments looked better than expected.

The Colts sought numerous medical opinions on how to proceed.

"The most likelihood is he's probably going to be gone for the year," Irsay told ESPN. "I mean, it's not definite but [he] probably misses this year and we're going to have to contend with that factor."

Amongst the various medical opinons, Irsay says surgery is the very likely option.

"There's debate going, but it's probably going to lead toward surgery in the next week or so," Irsay said. "We're just trying to figure out exactly how and when and what we want to do and what Anthony wants to do."

The Colts fell to the Jacksonville Jagaurs 37-20 in Sunday's game with backup quarterback Gardner Minshew, but Irsay tells ESPN he's confident in the team.

"We think we have an outstanding football team still," Irsay said. "We'll take them one at a time."
