  • Colts' Jacoby Brissett: In concussion protocol
    By RotoWire Staff

    Brissett is in the NFL's concussion protocol after developing symptoms following Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Steelers, Stephen Holder of The Indianapolis Star reports. Per the report, the QB was checked out twice during the course of Sunday's game, but he was deemed able to carry on. In the process, Brissett completed 14 of 24 passes for 222 yards with two TDs and a pick to go along with four carries for seven yards. Brissett will now have added time to recover from his concussion symptoms, considering the Colts are on bye in Week 11.

  • Brissett is slated to start at quarterback the rest of the season after Andrew Luck (shouder) was placed on injured reserve Thursday, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports. It's an assignment that Brissett has held since Week 2, but there previously had been optimism that Luck would return to action at some point in the second half of the campaign to take back starting duties. Brissett will now look to help the 2-6 Colts engineer a turnaround of their 2017 season, beginning with Sunday's road matchup against the Texans. Brissett tossed two touchdowns in Week 8, but prior to that, he recorded just three passing scores in his previous six starts. Overall, he's logged a 5:4 TD:INT ratio for the season, while adding 32 carries for 135 yards and three touchdowns.

  • Colts' Jacoby Brissett: Tosses two TDs
    By RotoWire Staff

    Brissett completed 25 of 39 passes for 233 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 24-23 loss to Cincinnati. It was the first game this season in which Brissett threw multiple touchdown passes and just the second time he accounted for multiple scores in a game. The second-year passer appears likely to hold onto the starting job for the foreseeable future, as Andrew Luck's (shoulder) most recent setback shrouds his availability in even greater uncertainty. Unsurprisingly, the offense isn't functioning at anywhere near the same level of efficiency with Brissett behind center, as he's accounted for just eight touchdowns in seven starts and has failed to push the ball downfield, averaging under six yards per attempt in five of seven starts. He takes on a top-10 pass defense in Houston next week.

  • Brissett completed 22 of 37 pass attempts for 200 yards in Sunday's 27-0 loss to the Jaguars. He also carried five times for 31 yards. Facing an aggressive Jaguars defensive unit, Brissett was sacked a whopping 10 times and hit several others. The pressure forced him to get rid of the ball early, leading to a poor 5.4 yards per attempt and just two gains through the air longer than 17 yards. One positive for Brissett is that he managed to avoid turning the ball over, though it was still a humbling performance. Things won't get much easier, as he will see a Cincinnati defense in Week 8 that has been solid in its own right for most of the campaign.

  • Brissett completed 21 of 37 passes for 212 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 36-22 loss to the Titans. He also rushed five times for 15 yards. Brissett's night was highlighted by an eight-yard touchdown to tight end Jack Doyle to start the second quarter. On the down side, he came inches short of a critical fourth-down rush in the fourth quarter. With top wideout T.Y. Hilton catching just one pass for 19 yards, Brissett was unable to get much going, but he at least didn't turn the ball over. With Andrew Luck's (shoulder) outlook still unclear, Brissett will now prepare for Sunday's matchup versus a swarming Jaguars defense.
