Colts activate QB Carson Wentz from COVID-19 list

The Indianapolis Colts activated quarterback Carson Wentz from the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday and he should be able to start against the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday.

Wentz, who is unvaccinated, must have a negative test Sunday to be allowed to play under new protocols adopted by the NFL and the players’ union this week. He went on the COVID-19 list Tuesday and was required to isolate for five days.

The Colts (9-6) can clinch a playoff berth by winning. They also activated cornerback T.J. Carrie and tackle Braden Smith from the COVID-19 list, while promoting quarterback Brett Hundley and defensive tackle Chris Williams from the practice squad as coronavirus replacements.

One thought on “Colts activate QB Carson Wentz from COVID-19 list

  1. Wentz, jnvaccinated, misses a week of practice after being placed on the Covid 19 list. Wentz comes off the list after the NFL reduces the number of days a player must isolate. Went starts the game against the Raiders. Wentz plays poorly. The Colts lose the game. Anyone else see the connections here?
