Colts head coach Frank Reich announced after Friday’s practice quarterback Carson Wentz will start in Sunday’s season opener against the Seattle Seahawks.
Wentz, who also missed time this summer while on the COVID-19 reserve list, last started a regular season game for the Eagles in Week 13 last season. He was benched in favor of Jalen Hurts in that game and didn’t play another snap for Philadelphia before being traded to the Colts this offseason.
While Wentz will be in the lineup, the Colts have ruled out cornerback Xavier Rhodes (calf), left tackle Eric Fisher (Achilles), and defensive end Kemoko Turay (groin).
