Colts star quarterback Jacoby Brissett had to leave Sunday's game against the Steelers with an apparent knee injury but there is not anything serious with it and he could play in Week 10.
The MRI results from Brissett came back clean, revealing that his MCL sprain is not serious. Brissett was obviously thrilled to know that he might be able to play next Sunday.
“I was relieved,” Brissett said via Joel Erickson of the Indianapolis Star. “That's a great word for it.”
Jacoby Brissett was acquired by the Colts in a trade with the Patriots before the 2017 season and he made 15 starts that year and threw for 3,098 yards and 13 touchdowns with seven interceptions. He was able to complete 58.8 percent of his passes and average 6.6 yards per attempt.
The Colts went just 4-11 in those starts in 2017 but he has led the team to a 5-3 start this season. So far Brissett has completed 153 of 236 passes for 1,649 yards and 14 touchdowns with three interceptions in eight games and he also has 110 rushing yards and one touchdown on 37 carries.
“Nothing would surprise me at this point,” Colts center Ryan Kelly said about Brissett's availability against the Dolphins. “He's a tough-(expletive) guy, and ever since Day 1, he's prepared himself that way. I have no doubts. If he's in there, he'll kill it.”
