IMO the most likely case is that he's either in the process of getting vaccinated(only has gotten one vaccine) or has been doubly vaccinated but 2 weeks have not passed since his second vaccine and the league doesn't count him as 'fully vaccinated' yet. 

 

I doubt he straight up lied to Keefer, but who knows... people do and say the weirdest stuff around those vaccines. 

He doesn’t seem to be that type of person

I get the same cautionary note.     As Shive has noted, it's to try and help prevent a small fire from turning into an out of control raging fire.     I can't find fault for that idea.      I think it's a fair to all approach.

 

These are incredible times we are living in.....

BTW... just in case people don't realize it yet - this will continue happening all season long and big portion of the leaders and best players on the team are not vaccinated - Wentz, Leonard, Q, Kelly(?), Fisher... those will be at a risk of missing pretty much any game if a case pops out in close proximity to them and cases will continue to pop up with the way this delta variant is spreading around. 

 

We were lucky this time the game is not at the end of this week.

If Wentz has to miss another 5 days, will he be ready by opening day ?

 

Putting him in against the seahawks when he's not ready could lead to alot of running around and another injury.

This Covid list for players is becoming frustrating. I understand why the NFL has these rules, but just venting about the whole situation. I wonder if we will ever go back to the way it was a couple years ago when no one had to worry about close contact, etc.

Unfortunately that is the nature of the beast, as it is. It will be something to watch throughout the season.

So if all three were vaccinated they would be at practice today .  There is no 5 day wait for close contacts for players who got the shot .

Yes, that's correct. At least that's the way I understand the rules.

Injuries/Covid is our team in shambles to start? Or is it just because we follow the Colts. I just want to know if other teams have been feeling like us. We haven't started the season yet and so many of our big name guys have had some kind of issue, including Coach Reich :(

If this is correct, I would start to get a bit annoyed with these guys. Free world and all, but we are running out of time and they will get in contact with the damn virus anyway. 
 

Sorry for rant.

Wentz you can’t blame anyone thinking he’s not.

 

Honestly, I think you can blame people for making assumptions, because a lot of grief and problems have been created just because people pass assumptions as facts.

I think I saw somewhere the Seahawks had 89/90 players vaccinated(before the cuts). All teams have their own issues and injuries, but Colts are probably among the teams worst off on the COVID front.

So it is true. These covid guys don’t count on the 53. So this is going to help them a ton keep guys they may have had to release. 
 

 

This will screw up our roster projection game :D

So Wentz will only miss one practice lol.

 

 

I wonder how they decide how much time the players miss? Is it 5 days from being put on the list(doesn't seem like it?) or 5 days since he's been in close contact with the person who tested positive?(seems more likely if he's going to be back on Thursday)

I figured out why it seemed Nelson only had to miss 4 days. It’s because they are getting tested everyday and it goes by when the player had contact last with that positive person. So Wentz contact with the staffer must of been on Saturday. Therefore he can come back Thursday. They only have a walk through tomorrow and practice Wed. So Wentz should be back at practice Thursday.

Which would be a way to keep Ehlinger on the 53 for 24 hours before then being put to IR.  (Assuming I'm understanding the rules correctly)

Yep. Since it looks like these guys won’t miss much practice this all works out better then expected. It helps keep some guys we would of had to waive and hope to get back. Let’s hope they these three Dont test positive and are back this week. Maybe a conspiracy to keep some guys. Lol

This is really going to challenge the league, and the Colts.

Bruce Arians said he doesn't care about the new guidelines and his ball club are going to operate under the same stringent rules from last season. If I'm the Colts, I'm doing something similar. Also, you have to have some kind of backup plan that's viable. Can Eason start and willy-pip Carson? Can this team cope without Darius Leonard? Is Danny Pinter ready? It's impossible to be two-deep at every position, and that's the dream clubs have had but this year, more than ever, the DEPTH is going to be a major competitive advantage alongside vaccinations.

I think it might be the case with a lot of teams. I read last week that the Vikings had the lowest vaccination rate.

 I know we respect a person’s right to make certain decisions for themselves but there are instances where the good of the public overrides the individual choice: (i.e. wearing seatbelts).

   Now, we have players going on and off the COVID list and will probably have this situation for a while.

     So players who have gotten vaccinated will pay the price for those who choose not to be vaccinated. I understand you can still get the virus, after vaccination but it just seems this would be less of an issue if the NFL would mandate getting the vaccine as a requirement to play professional football. 
       Players are required to abstain from marijuana, even in states that have legalized it.

      Common sense should prevail. Maybe it will get so bad, they’ll have to do something.

Thread will Be locked but would be for NFL mandating it.   Colts gonna be losing people on the regular it seems this year with close contacts and positives due to the poor choices of multiple players.

I wonder how our % of players vaxxed will look after cut downs?  I know we will probably have key players without the vaccine, but hopefully there will be a higher percentage of players that have received it.

I think it could down actually.  It’s pretty well believed around the league that if you are guy at the bottom of the roster not being vaccinated could very well cost you a roster spot so logic would seem to suggest the vast majority of those players are vaccinated and every team in the NFL is going to have to cut 27 of them.

Anyone that was confused about unvaxed and close contact. It’s five days from the last contact. So in reality a player could just miss one practice or maybe non at all if they don’t practice.  If they had like 4 negative test and the  contact was five days prior they would only miss one more day.

    • I don't think there is room or a need to bring up Coutee.   Hilton, Campbell, Pittman, Pascal, Strachan, Doyle, Cox, Hines and Granson is almost too many already.
    • You mean an aging vet like Stafford, that took two 1st rounders, plus a 3rd, plus a starting QB?   Wentz had one elite year, one above average year, one average year, and one bad year.  His bad year has an abundance of context around it, which simply can't be ignored.   After digging into the context, I warmed up to him, and predicted him having a near top 10 (8-12) type of year before the season started. It really wasn't that hard to project. And he's already close to my prediction even with a horrible OL.
    • https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/free-agents/indianapolis-colts/   We have 29 FA's after the season. I realize not all of them are expensive and we won't re-sign them all, but with only $40 million in cap room, we are going to be extremely limited in what we can do. We will lose some good players, and it will be tough to replace them not only in FA, but in the draft next year without a 1st round pick (most likely) when we could of used a cheap talent like that. I'm not sure we can depend on anything but growth from who we have to get better as the cap will restrict us cap-wise, and talent-wise, we will more than likely be worse.
    • So it's either a Flus problem that he didn't know that his DE's were incapable or were talent void to drop them into coverage but continued to do it anyway or it's a Ballard problem because I notice that you comment on the talent level from time to time.   As dc it's Flus's job to put that defense in the BEST position to SUCCEED based on the TALENT LEVEL AT HAND. The endgame is to stop the opposing team from scoring. I'm not going to HELP their cause by being STUBBORN and keep running something that my players physically can't do while the opposing offense steadily exploits the situation by scoring at will.
