NFL injury updates, latest league news from Tuesday, Dec. 14

The Indianapolis Colts are welcoming a key member of their offensive line back into the fold in Week 15.

The team announced Tuesday that center Ryan Kelly has been activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list. Kelly, who was placed on the list on Dec. 4, told reporters he dealt with mild symptoms for a few days while in protocol but is “feeling good” now.

The 28-year-old former first rounder has been a fixture on the Colts’ O-line since joining the club in 2016. He’s started 12 of Indy’s 13 games this season with his lone DNP coming in Week 13 as result of his COVID-list designation.

With their bye week now behind them, the Colts can continue their preparation for a pivotal Saturday night showdown against the 9-4 Patriots with Kelly’s stout presence back in the lineup.

The matchup will air exclusively on NFL Network at 8:15 p.m. ET.
