Colts QB Jacoby Brissett suffers injury vs. Steelers
The Indianapolis Colts may be dealing with yet another quarterback injury. Jacoby Brissett, who stepped in for the team as starting quarterback following the shocking retirement of Andrew Luck just before Week 1 of the 2019 NFL season, went down writhing in pain during the second quarter of Sunday’s road game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Brissett got hurt while trying to complete a pass. Ironically, offensive guard Quenton Nelson, arguably the best piece on the Colts’ pass protection, was the one who dinged Brissett, landing awkwardly on the quarterback’s left leg.
While Brissett was able to jog on his own off the field, the Colts have been forced to send backup Brian Hoyer to the field. Hoyer didn’t waste much time announcing his entry into the game by throwing a dart to tight end Jack Doyle.
Brissett entered Week 9 with 1,590 passing yards and 14 touchdowns against three interceptions.
