The Colts positioned Carson Wentz on the COVID-19/reserve checklist, per a membership announcement. For the reason that quarterback is unvaccinated, this leaves him ineligible to play on Sunday towards the Raiders if he examined constructive.
The league’s present protocols require unvaccinated gamers to spend a minimal of 10 days in isolation earlier than rejoining the workforce. That rule may change within the coming days as the NFL and NFLPA talk about yet one more revision to the protocols, although their revisions could solely apply to vaccinated gamers.
For now, the Colts are anticipated to start out Sam Ehlinger on Sunday as they appear to agency up their playoff spot. At 9-7, they should beat the Raiders with a view to hold their divisional hopes alive.
Ehlinger, a sixth-round rookie, has but to try a go this 12 months. Wentz, in the meantime, has accomplished 63% of his throws for 3,230 yards with 25 touchdowns towards six interceptions.
