MRI shows Colts' Jacoby Brissett has MCL sprain

Share

Colts head coach Frank Reich said after his team's tough loss that Brissett likely suffered a knee sprain, and ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports that an MRI on Monday confirmed that. The injury is considered minor and Brissett has a chance to play against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. Hoyer did as well as could be expected though, and the Colts probably feel good if he has to play this week and beyond.

The diagnosis does not come as a surprise, as the Colts suspected following Sunday's game that Brissett's knee injury was minor.

The Steelers offense manged just one touchdown, in the third quarter.

Brissett went down in the second quarter after guard Quenton Nelson was pushed into the QB's leg.

Veteran quarterback Brian Hoyer, who the Colts signed after the retirement of Andrew Luck, replaced Brissett in the contest.

"We know he's a great kicker", Steelers defensive end Cam Heyward said.

Khalil said a partial evacuation happened earlier Saturday from Ras al-Ayn after much stalling and with United States co-ordination.


"I mean, we're cautiously optimistic with Ryan, but we'll see how it goes as the week progresses".

Along with Vinatieri's missed extra point attempt, the Colts turned the ball over three times.

We have seen the Colts defeat some of the league's best squads but they will need a healthy Brissett, Hilton, and offensive line in order to do it again. "He got the laces, and it was a fluke", Reich said. "It just doesn't happen very often". While Randy Fichtner might not be doing Rudolph any favors by calling such a conservative game, the second-year quarterback failed to execute - managing just 191 yards on 35 attempts. Indianapolis also gave the Steelers three points at the end of the first half when linebacker Darius Leonard was called for unnecessary roughness on Pittsburgh tight end Vance McDonald on a short catch by McDonald near midfield. Fitzpatrick's pick-six is the second longest interception in Steelers' franchise history.

"I tried", he said.

Scoring defense. Since returning from their Week 6 bye, the Colts have allowed four touchdowns in three games and 20.0 points per game and have held all three opponents to 24 or fewer points.
