Indianapolis – Colts fans worst fear was realized Tuesday afternoon when the Colts official twitter account sent out the news that Carson Wentz was being placed on the COVID-19 list.

 

After losing starters Darius Leonard, Quenton Nelson, Braden Smith, Khari Willis, Zach Pascal, and Mark Glowinski in the days prior, it was the final nail in the coffin to Colts fans ahead of an important game vs the Raiders that will go a long way in determining playoff seeding

 

It didn’t take Colts fans long to think of backup plans, even former QB Philip Rivers name was floated in the Colts front office as a potential replacement for Wentz.

 

 

Right as 3:00 struck and JMV opened up his show, ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter dropped a nugget of info that was seen as a life preserver to the fanbase.

With the hope that the Colts could get back a stable of critical starters that were once thought to be out vs the Raiders due to a 10 day quarantine, it seemed like things were looking up. The only question left was if Carson Wentz tested positive on Monday, allowing him to quarantine for 5 days and then play on Sunday or if he tested positive on Tuesday meaning that he wouldn’t be available until the following Monday, missing the game vs Las Vegas.

 

Once the NFL and NFLPA agreed upon the new COVID protocols, a whirlwind of an afternoon concluded with the final piece of good news for the Colts organization.

 

It took only 4.5 hours but the rollercoaster of emotions had finally ended and it looking like the Colts will return every major starter that was previously out for COVID ahead of their matchup vs the Raiders.

 

Just another day in the NFL for the 2021 Season.
