Indianapolis Colts have put their unvaccinated QB on Covid reserve. On Tuesday, the NFLP Association adopted new CDCP guidelines. It will bring down quarantine days from ten days to five for their players. The rule will apply to unvaccinated players too. Players whose symptoms are visibly improving or are asymptomatic will have to follow the 5-day quarantine rule.
Carson Wentz Unvaccinated
Quarterback Carson Wentz was tested positive for Covid. Carson Wentz can play against LA Riders if the test was on Monday. Indianapolis Colts are to play the LA Riders on Sunday.
Carson has not revealed why he chooses to remain unvaccinated. Wentz missed a few games before the main season because someone in Indianapolis Colts tested positive. In September, he explained that it is a family decision. He hoped that everyone would respect his decision and he would do the same.
Sam Ehlinger will replace Carson Wentz if he is not eligible to join the Colts. There are chances that QB Brett Hundley will replace Wentz in Sunday’s match against Los Angeles Riders. Sam Ehlinger had to sit out for the first half of the season due to a knee wound.
Covid-19 has wreaked havoc on NFL teams. Fifteen players from the Colts have been put on the covid reserve list. LB Darius Leonard, RT Braden Smith, CB Rock Ya-Sin, and guards Mark Glowinski and Quenton Nelson are out due to COVID. Darius, Quenton, and Braden were unvaccinated when the season began.
The Colts are with 9-6. They have won eight of ten games. The Colts are now the No 5 seed. Just one match keeps the No 5 and No 11 seed apart. The Colts will guarantee a position in the playoffs with a triumph over LA Raiders.
Frank Reich, Indianapolis Colts’ coach, said that players being benched because of Covid could be predicted. He said that it was adversity that could have been seen coming. He believes that everyone needs to put faith in themselves and their games. Getting distracted will not help them.
