Wentz was listed as a full participant on the Colts' initial Week 5 injury report released Thursday, an indication that the team is comfortable with his health after he sprained both of his ankles in a Week 2 loss to the Rams, JJ Stankevitz of the team's official site reports. "I definitely feel much better," Wentz said. "I came out of the [Colts' Week 4 win over the Dolphins] thankfully unscathed. Felt good the next morning and the extra rest here early in the week has definitely helped as well."

The Colts' injury report featured "ankle" rather than "ankles" next to his name, suggesting that he's at least 100 percent recovered from one of the sprains. The other ankle sprain doesn't look like it will bother him much moving forward, either, even though he had a rough outing in his first game coming off the injury in the Week 3 loss to the Titans. Wentz bounced back well in Week 4 with his best performance as a Colt, completing 24 of 32 attempts for 228 yards and two touchdowns while carrying five times for eight yards. Wentz's involvement in the run game was a particularly encouraging sight, given that he didn't attempt any runs against the Titans in his first game coming off the injury. The Colts shouldn't have to adjust their game plan out of any concern for Wentz's health in Monday's contest in Baltimore.
