The Colts have reached agreement with QB Philip Rivers on a 1-year deal, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. It's been a long-anticipated move that should upgrade the QB play for Indy. Of course, Rivers is 38 and coming off 1 of his worst seasons -- both of which surely factor into the Chargers letting him go. Rivers over Jacoby Brissett should help WR T.Y. Hilton and TE Jack Doyle, but we're not sure about him leading an enormous rebound for the Colts offense on whole. Over the past 4 years, Indy has ranked top 10 in scoring and yards in the 2 seasons Andrew Luck has played; 25th or worse in yards and 16th or worse in scoring in the 2 years Luck missed. Colts HC Frank Reich does have experience with Rivers, coordinating his Chargers offense in 2014 and 2015, and spending 2013 as the QBs coach. San Diego finished 2014 ranked 17th in scoring and 18th in yards; 2015 found the Chargers 9th in yards but just 26th in points.
Colts WR Parris Campbell (hand) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, putting him on track to return for this weekend's game against the Bucs. It'll be the rookie's 1st action since Week 9. We wouldn't trust him in fantasy lineups, despite Sunday's plus matchup. But Campbell's return helps QB Jacoby Brissett, who is still missing WR T.Y. Hilton and TE Eric Ebron.
Colts QB Jacoby Brissett (knee) practiced all week and will start Sunday’s game against the Jaguars. That’s good news for Indianapolis’ skill-position guys, but Brissett is just a mid-range QB2 vs. Jacksonville’s 18th-ranked QB defense.
Colts QB Jacoby Brissett (knee) will be a full participant in Wednesday's practice, HC Frank Reich said. Barring a setback, Brissett should be back for this weekend's game against the Jaguars. That's good news for the entire offense after QB Brian Hoyer struggled vs. Miami last week.
Colts QB Jacoby Brissett will miss Sunday’s game against Miami. Brian Hoyer will make the start while Brissett rests an MCL sprain. Hoyer’s a risky fantasy option, but a matchup with the Dolphins puts him on the deep league radar.
Colts QB Jacoby Brissett (knee) is a game-time decision for this weekend’s tilt with the Dolphins, HC Frank Reich said Friday. Brissett got in 3 limited practices this week. Colts-Fins doesn’t kick off until 4:05 pm ET, so hopefully we get an update on this situation on Sunday morning. QB Brian Hoyer will draw the start if Brissett is out.
Colts QB Jacoby Brissett (knee) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. The fact that he was out there at all is an encouraging sign. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow, but Brissett definitely has a shot to play against the Dolphins this weekend.
Colts QB Jacoby Brissett has a "chance" to play against the Dolphins this weekend, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen. The MRI on the injured left knee confirmed an MCL sprain. We'll keep a close eye on Brissett's status throughout this week, but it at least looks like he avoided a multi-week injury. QB Brian Hoyer will start vs. Miami if Brissett can't.
Colts HC Frank Reich said after Sunday's loss to the Steelers that the team believes QB Jacoby Brissett is dealing with a sprained MCL. Brissett remained on the sidelines after exiting and looked like he wanted to re-enter the game. He never did, but it at least looks like he avoided a serious injury here. We should get a more concrete diagnosis and timeline on Brissett tomorrow.
Colts QB Jacoby Brissett injured his left foot or ankle in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game in Pittsburgh. He was able to get off the field under his own power and is being looked at by trainers on the sidelines. QB Brian Hoyer is in for Indianapolis. We'll update Brissett's status when we learn more.
Update: The Colts announced that Brissett has a knee injury and is questionable to return.
Stephen Holder of The Athletic supplied some ominous info early Friday afternoon on WR T.Y. Hilton's calf injury. Holder said Hilton was in a walking boot Thursday and that the Colts wideout "is very much in jeopardy of missing Sunday's game at Pittsburgh." Unless Indy rules him out today, we'll likely need to track Hilton's status right up until Sunday's inactives come out. Stay tuned. And if you've been planning to start QB Jacoby Brissett this weekend, consider your other options.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Colts QB Andrew Luck has decided to retire. Luck has reportedly already talked to team management about his decision. Jacoby Brissett now takes over the starting gig. This appears to be a shocking move to everyone. Schefter reports that Luck feels "worn down." The QB switch lowers the ceiling for everyone in the Indy offense. The Colts finished 30th in points and 31st in scoring in 2017, with Luck sidelined (shoulder) and Brissett starting.
Colts QB Jacoby Brissett (concussion) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll start Sunday’s game against the Titans’ 21st-ranked QB defense, making him a viable Week 12 spot starter.
Colts QB Jacoby Brissett (concussion) was listed as a full participant in Wednesday's practice. He's on track to receive full clearance ahead of this weekend's game against the Titans. Brissett is a viable Week 12 spot starter in that plus matchup.
The Indianapolis Star reports that Colts QB Jacoby Brissett took the "lion's share" of 1st-team snaps in Monday's practice and that HC Chuck Pagano expects him to be ready to start Sunday against the Titans. Brissett must still complete the league concussion protocol to be eligible. We'll keep an eye on that progress this week. The team will have Tuesday off but return to the practice field Wednesday.
Colts HC Chuck Pagano said Monday that QB Jacoby Brissett remains in the concussion protocol. It's unclear how much progress he's made 8 days removed from the head injury. We'll keep a close eye on his status throughout this week. Brissett will be on the Week 12 spot-start radar if he's able to play against the Titans on Sunday.
The Colts said after the game that QB Jacoby Brissett had developed concussion symptoms after their loss to the Steelers and entered the league concussion protocol. They also said Brissett got checked twice during the game for a concussion and passed each time. Fortunately for him and the Colts, the team gets a Week 11 bye.
The Colts on Monday ruled out QB Andrew Luck for Week 3. Same as last week. Considering Luck still hasn't returned to practice, Week 5 is looking like his earliest possible return date now. QB Jacoby Brissett will get another start this Sunday against the Browns. He was at least an upgrade over Scott Tolzien this past week, completing 20 of 37 passes for 216 yards, 0 TDs and 1 INT.
The Colts will start QB Jacoby Brissett against the Cardinals on Sunday, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It's not a surprising development given Scott Tolzien's horrid Week 1 against the Rams -- and previous lackluster play. Of course, Brissett just joined the team after the 4th set of preseason games and reportedly still split 1st-team reps with Tolzien in practice this week. The move can't hurt for the Colts' other skill guys. But Brissett is no more than a cheap DFS consideration for fantasy purposes this week. When Andrew Luck will return remains a mystery.
Colts HC Chuck Pagano ruled out QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) for Week 2 on Monday. No surprise here. The decision so early in the week is just confirmation that Luck isn't particularly close to a return. We'd consider Week 4 the best-case scenario at this point. Pagano wouldn't say whether Scott Tolzien or Jacoby Brissett will start at QB vs. the Cardinals on Sunday, but neither should be in your fantasy plans.
