Matt Ryan net worth 2022: Why Colts benched starter and chose Sam Ehlinger

Matt Ryan was benched by the Indianapolis Colts, who then turned to Sam Ehlinger as the quarterback in Week 8 on October 24.

The Colts made the surprising announcement on Monday after a loss to the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.

It was also reported that Ryan had a Grade 2 shoulder separation and won't practice this week.

Colts coach Frank Reich said the move to Ehlinger took place because it was the plan to start him for the rest of the season.

The Colts hope second-year quarterback Sam Ehlinger can provide a spark to build on their 3-3-1 record.

Ryan threw a costly pick-six on Sunday against the Titans in a loss that forced the Colts to drop to 3-3-1.

Ryan leads the NFL with 9 interceptions and also leads the NFL with 11 fumbles.

As of 2022, Matt Ryan's net worth is estimated to be $70 million.
