Colts’ Carson Wentz on not being vaccinated: I’m not expert but there is lot of unknown with this pandemic

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Carson Wentz spent five days on the reserve/COVID-19 list after being deemed as a close contact to a positive person but still he is reluctant about taking the vaccine.

Wentz didn’t shut the door on the possibility of taking the jab in the future but right now he is not interested in getting vaccinated.

Unvaccinated players are at higher risk of getting on the reserve/COVID-19 list and missing games this season.

“I think with this pandemic, even going back to last year, there’s a lot of unknown, and like I said, I’m not going to act like an expert in it, but there’s a lot of unknown that I think everyone handles it differently but being here, within the NFL, with the protocol and trying to be available like I just said, yeah, you definitely — you do want to go above and beyond and make sure you’re smart with what you do not only in this building, but outside this building,” Wentz explained, per Pro Football Talk.
