NFL-Colts QB Wentz added to COVID-19 list, will miss Sunday’s game

(Reuters) – Indianapolis Colts have placed quarterback Carson Wentz on the NFL Reserve/COVID-19 list, the team said on Tuesday.

The team did not say whether Wentz had tested positive for the virus or if he was a close contact with someone who had.

Wentz has refused to get the COVID-19 vaccine and therefore will miss Sunday’s matchup against the Las Vegas Raiders, where a victory would secure the Colts a spot in the playoffs.

Rookie Sam Ehlinger is expected to be undercentre for the 9-6 Colts in Indianapolis on Sunday.

Wentz is the 15th player currently on the list for the Colts, according to ESPN.
