With the Indianapolis Colts playing for their postseason lives, things just got pretty darn tough for them in Week 17. That's because starting quarterback Carson Wentz has tested positive for COVID.

With the NFL protocols, this means Wentz has to be away from the team for the next 10 days because he hasn't been vaccinated. Yup, he won't be able to suit up going up against the Las Vegas Raiders at home on Sunday.

Both the Raiders and Colts are trying to grab one of the AFC Wild Card spots. This is a massive showdown in Week 17, but Wentz is going to have to watch this one from home.
