After losing a huge home game against the Dolphins on Sunday, the Colts will have their starting quarterback back Sunday when the team takes on the AFC South’s Jacksonville Jaguars.
NFL.com reports that Colts coach Frank Reich made it official today, announcing Jacoby Brissett would start Sunday’s huge game after missing the Dolphins loss with a knee injury.
Practice reps indicated Brissett would return to the starting lineup after missing one start. The signal-caller was a full participant in practice this week.
Reich wouldn’t put a percentage on Brissett’s health entering the game but said the QB was healthy enough to play.
Last week, the Colts were hopeful the starter could go but eventually ruled him out on Saturday.
Backup QB Brian Hoyer was mostly ineffective on Sunday in the loss to the Dolphins, and he’ll take his role back this week with Brissett back in the starting role.
