Just when the Colts get quarterback Carson Wentz back from injury, they lose him once again. This time to the NFLs COVID-19 protocol.
The Colts positioned Carson Wentz, Ryan Kelly and Zach Pascal on the COVID-19 reserve list Monday afternoon.

These particular players being positioned on the COVID list this close to the start of the NFL season isnt ideal. Kelly is supposedly completely vaccinated so hell be out up until he posts 2 unfavorable tests.
Wentz was going to make his return to the practice field in a complete capability after having foot surgery now that will have to wait at least until next Monday.
Per the NFLs COVID protocol, a gamer whos positioned on the list as a close contact should miss 5 days. A gamer who is favorable might miss out on approximately 10 days, depending on their vaccination status.
Wentz said in late July that it was a personal choice to not get immunized.
Colts put 3 beginners on the COVID-19/ Reserve List simply under 2 weeks prior to the season begins.
Losing Wentz once again will hurt both him and the team, as he simply returned from surgery and was currently in a race to be all set for Week 1 versus the Seattle Seahawks. Even if he stays unfavorable, he d lose 5 days of practice time that was a necessity due to the time hes currently missed out on.
Losing 3 crucial starters to the COVID-19 list this near the routine season isnt ideal for any franchise, however especially the Colts who the preseason has actually not respected.
