Colts activate QB Carson Wentz, 2 others from COVID list

The Indianapolis Colts activated quarterback Carson Wentz, center Ryan Kelly and wide receiver Zach Pascal from the reserve/COVID-19 list on Thursday.

The team also officially placed veteran wideout T.Y. Hilton, rookie quarterback Sam Ehlinger and receiver Dezmon Patmon on injured reserve.

Wentz, Kelly and Pascal landed on the list Monday after reportedly being designated as close contacts to a staff member who tested positive for the virus.

Wentz, 28, had been expected to return to full practice Monday for the first time since undergoing foot surgery in early August. This week’s setback significantly reduced his preparation time ahead of the Colts’ Sept. 12 season opener against the visiting Seattle Seahawks.

Hilton, 31, is on IR following a “minimally invasive” neck procedure, according to general manager Chris Ballard.

Ehlinger, 22, the team’s 2021 sixth-round draft pick, has a sprained ACL.

Patmon, 23, a sixth-rounder in 2020, injured his foot in the Aug. 27 preseason finale at Detroit.
