Colts QB Jacoby Brissett will start on Sunday unless a setback occurs
Brissett has been sidelined with a knee injury since the 26-24 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 9. According to ESPN’s Mike Wells, he is in line to start the homestand versus Jacksonville after logging in a full practice:
The Colts expect QB Jacoby Brissett (knee) to be a full participant in practice Wednesday.
This is certainly an encouraging update for Indianapolis given how big of a void his absence has left in the offense. Brissett made it clear that he was hoping to make his return last week in the loss against Miami, however, head coach Frank Reich opted to take a cautious approach with their franchise quarterback.
Although Brissett was upset with not being able to play and potentially make a difference in the outcome, he has since acknowledged the reasoning was to ensure he would not further aggravate the injury.
Brissett’s activity in practice essentially solidifies Reich’s notion that he will be good to go when the Colts host the Jaguars in this crucial AFC South matchup. There is no question he has done a stellar job since taking over under center after successfully managing to avoid any significant drop-off from quarterback Andrew Luck last season.
However, Brissett will need to find a way to get this offense back on track before they start to lose their footing n the division.
