    Colts' Jacoby Brissett: In line to replace Luck

    Jacoby Brissett is slated to become the Indianapolis Colts' starting QB following the expected retirement of Andrew Luck (calf/ankle) on Sunday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.The news emerged in the second half of the Colts' third preseason game, one in which both Luck and Brissett didn't take the field. There was some conjecture in the lead-up to this contest that coach Frank Reich would make a call on the Week 1 starter after its conclusion, but Luck presumably will force his hand. In the wake of Luck's decision, Brissett will have an array of weapons at his disposal, namely T.Y Hilton, Marlon Mack and the tight end duo of Eric Ebron and Jack Doyle.

    Jacoby Brissett won't play in Saturday's preseason game against the Bears, Zak Keefer of The Athletic reports.With Andrew Luck (calf/ankle) uncertain for Week 1, the Indianapolis Colts won't take any chances with one of the better backup quarterbacks in the league.

    Colts' Jacoby Brissett: Playing status for Saturday unclear

    Coach Frank Reich hasn't revealed whether Jacoby Brissett will play in Saturday's preseason game against the Bears, Zak Keefer of The Athletic reports.Reich did acknowledge that "you won't see a lot of the 1s." Given that Andrew Luck's Week 1 status is unclear, as he battles back from calf/ankle woes, it's possible that the Indianapolis Colts will play it safe with Brissett on Saturday, considering the possibility that he may have to fill in for Luck early on in the regular season.

    Colts' Jacoby Brissett: Impresses in loss to Browns

    Jacoby Brissett completed eight of his 10 pass attempts for 100 yards and a touchdown during Saturday's 21-18 preseason loss to the Browns.Brissett did little on his first two drives, but he then impressed on a 10-play, 85-yard drive which concluded with his touchdown pass to Eric Ebron. The team seemingly saw what they needed to see on that drive, removing him prior to the team's next possession. Brissett will likely continue to ramp up his involvement next Saturday against the Bears as Andrew Luck (ankle) continues to rehab his injury. He could feasibly start the season opener against the Chargers if his aforementioned teammate isn't ready.

    Colts' Jacoby Brissett: Minimal work to open preseason

    Jacoby Brissett completed two of five attempts for 21 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions in the Indianapolis Colts' 24-16 preseason loss to the Bills on Thursday.Brissett played the first three drives for the Colts to open the contest, but the offense netted all of 22 yards with him under center. The 2016 third-round pick offers head coach Frank Reich the rare combination of a young yet experienced backup, with Brissett having started all 16 games in 2017 while Andrew Luck tended to a shoulder injury. Brissett is once again logging heavy reps in Luck's stead, albeit in training camp practices at this point, as the latter deals with a calf injury. The 26-year-old Brissett should see more playing time in next week's second exhibition against the Browns.

    Colts' Jacoby Brissett: Gets more work with starters

    Jacoby Brissett worked with the starting offense throughout the offseason program and isn't likely to be traded, Kevin Bowen of ESPN 1070 The Fan Indianapolis reports.A calf strain held Andrew Luck out of practice throughout the spring, allowing Brissett to take regular snaps with the first unit. The Indianapolis Colts presumably received some trade offers for the 26-year-old quarterback during the offseason, but coach Frank Reich and general manager Chris Ballard both have made it clear that they value Brissett, who is entering the final year of his rookie contract. There hasn't been any suggestion that Luck's injury will still be an issue in late July, when training camp begins.

    Colts' Jacoby Brissett: Trade candidate this offseason

    Jacoby Brissett could be traded this offseason but the Indianapolis Colts' asking price is high, Joel A. Erickson of the Indianapolis Star reports.Brissett didn't see any meaningful action in 2018, playing just 18 snaps across four games. However, he started in 15 games in 2017 while Andrew Luck was injured and he impressed enough to garner interest from clubs in need of a starting quarterback in 2019. It's unclear exactly what the Colts' asking price is, but given Brissett's stat line of 3,098 yards, 13 touchdowns and seven interceptions in 2017, it seems unlikely that another team would forfeit a top draft pick to bring him in. Entering the final year of his rookie contract, Brissett will be a quality backup for the Colts in 2019 if the team doesn't trade him.

    Colts' Jacoby Brissett: Used on final play Sunday

    Jacoby Brissett replaced Andrew Luck on the final play of Sunday's loss at Philadelphia. He threw a 60-yard Hail Mary pass that fell incomplete on his only pass attempt.With the Indianapolis Colts needing a long Hail Mary to win the game, Brisset was used for his stronger arm. Luck is clearly the starting quarterback, but the move could be seen as the team still having some concern about Luck's shoulder after he missed all of last season. Notably, head coach Frank Reich said Brissett's usage was only because of his strong arm.

    Colts' Jacoby Brissett: Finishes preseason on high note

    Jacoby Brissett completed eight of 12 passes for 68 yards and a touchdown while playing two drives during Thursday's preseason game in Cincinnati.Brissett's first drive ended with a Robert Turbin fumble and the second ended with a two-yard touchdown pass to WR Zach Pascal. A high-end backup quarterback is more valuable on a team with legitimate Super Bowl aspirations, but the Indianapolis Colts have made it clear they'd need to be blown away by an offer to even consider trading the 24-year-old. The calculus might change next offseason when Brissett is entering the final year of his rookie contract.

    Colts' Jacoby Brissett: Slated to start Thursday

    Jacoby Brissett is expected to start Thursday's preseason game at Cincinnati, Andrew Walker of the Indianapolis Colts' official site reports.Andrew Luck has received enough work in the first three games (32 pass attempts, five rushes) to not press his luck with a minor foot injury in tow. With Luck out of commission, Brissett will act as the starter in the Colts' exhibition finale, as he did 15 times last season. Entering the campaign as Luck's backup could lead Brissett to see the field this season, especially considering the former's injury woes the past few years.
