The Colts have placed QB Carson Wentz on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Indy also placed WR Zach Pascal and C Ryan Kelly on the same list. We’re not sure if Wentz was a close contact or if he tested positive, but it’s a setback regardless. Per team insider Mike Chappell, HC Frank Reich wanted to see Wentz “shoulder a heavy load going into next week.” That's not happening now. We’ll update you when we learn more.
Update: NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that all 3 players were close contacts with a Colts staffer who tested positive. That means they could return in 5 days if they test negative and remain symptom-free.
Colts QB Carson Wentz (ankles) is active for today’s game vs. the Dolphins. He remained limited in practice all week and still isn’t at 100%. Wentz is a low-end QB2 in fantasy football.
Colts QB Carson Wentz (ankles) remained limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Dolphins. He'll start, but this is a reminder that he's still operating at less than 100%.
Colts QB Carson Wentz (ankles) is active for today’s game against the Titans. He’ll be playing through sprains to both of his ankles. Expect his mobility to be limited and his accuracy to potentially be affected. Wentz is obviously an extremely shaky fantasy play.
Colts QB Carson Wentz will start vs. the Titans today, a source tells ESPN's Chris Mortensen. Wentz reportedly moved around well at Friday's practice -- although he was "heavily taped." It's safe to assume his mobility will be limited today. Wentz is a low-end QB2 in fantasy football.
The Colts are "gearing [QB Carson Wentz] up to start" Sunday's game vs. the Titans, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It sounds like Wentz had an encouraging practice on Friday. Rapoport adds that a final decision might not come until pregame warmups. Wentz has turned in QB18 and QB21 weekly finishes so far -- and he's not a recommended Week 3 fantasy play on 2 bum ankles. But he's still probably better for the Colts' skill-position guys than QBs Jacob Eason and Brett Hundley.
