INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Colts have added their starting quarterback to the collection of players on the Reserve/COVID-19 list.
Carson Wentz was added to the list Tuesday and is not likely to play in Sunday’s game against the Las Vegas Raiders at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Wentz, who is not vaccinated, was previously put on the Reserve/COVID list in late August after “close contact” with a team staffer who had tested positive for the virus.
The addition of Wentz comes one day after the Colts placed five players on the list — safety Jahleel Addae, cornerback T.J. Carrie, linebacker Malik Jefferson, running back Marlon Mack, and tackle Braden Smith.
Fifteen Colts players have joined the NFL protocol so far this month, including linebacker Zaire Franklin, guard Mark Glowinski, center Ryan Kelly, linebacker Darius Leonard, guard Quenton Nelson, wide receiver Zach Pascale, defensive end Kemoko Turay, safety Khari Willis, and cornerback Rock Ya-Sin.
