Colts’ Carson Wentz (COVID-19) moves closer to playing vs. Raiders

The Indianapolis Colts activated Carson Wentz from the COVID-19 list on Saturday, keeping the door open for the quarterback to be available for Sunday’s home game against the Las Vegas Raiders.

Per NFL guidelines, Wentz had to be activated by 4 p.m. ET on Saturday to have a chance to play. Wentz, who is unvaccinated, reportedly needs to clear testing protocol on Sunday to be able to take the field.

Wentz will start for the Colts (9-6) if he clears protocol. Otherwise, rookie Sam Ehlinger will make his first career start.

Wentz, who turned 29 on Thursday, has thrown for 3,230 yards with 25 touchdowns and six interceptions in 15 games this season.

Ehlinger was a sixth-round selection in the 2021 draft out of Texas. He hasn’t thrown an NFL pass in three appearances.

Indianapolis also activated cornerback T.J. Carrie and right tackle Braden Smith from the COVID-19 list and waived center Joey Hunt and tackle Greg Senat.

Among the Colts’ other moves on Saturday was elevating quarterback Brett Hundley from the practice squad as a COVID-19 replacement.
