INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The Indianapolis Colts on Saturday activated quarterback Carson Wentz, offensive lineman Braden Smith and defensive back T.J. Carrie from the Reserve/COVID-19 list.

Wentz was placed on the list Tuesday.

Saturday’s transaction paves the way for Wentz, Smith and Carrie to play in Sunday’s game against the Las Vegas Raiders.

A change in the NFL’s policy announced hours after Wentz was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list reduced the required isolation time from 10 days to five, making it possible for him to play Sunday.
