Wentz (foot) went through 11-on-11 drills at Thursday's practice, Zak Keefer of The Athletic reports.

A brief stint on the COVID list delayed his return to full-team drills from Monday to Thursday. It shouldn't matter in terms of Week 1 availability, with all signs suggesting the Colts expect Wentz to start against the Seahawks -- a sentiment the QB echoed after Thursday's practice, per George Bremer of The Anderson Herald Bulletin. Fellow QB Sam Ehlinger (knee) was placed on injured reserve Thursday, leaving Wentz and Jacob Eason as the only signal-callers on Indy's 53-man roster. Wentz is approaching the front end of his recovery timeline (5-12 weeks) after Aug. 2 foot surgery, seemingly headed for a best-case scenario, albeit with risk of re-injury.
