It is still unclear who will start at quarterback for the Colts on Sunday against the Miami Dolphins. It will come down to Jacoby Brissett’s health.
Brissett suffered a MCL sprain last week against the Steelers. He was limited in practice throughout the week as he works his way back to full health.
According to the latest report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Brissett will be game-time decision against the Dolphins on Sunday.

If Brissett is unavailable to play, Brian Hoyer will start in his place. Either way, the Colts should be able to take care of business against the abysmal Miami Dolphins. Miami is just 1-7 on the season while Indianapolis is 5-3.
The Colts are in second place in the AFC South Division. The 6-3 Houston Texans currently lead the division. Indianapolis has a chance to challenge the Texans in the division race. The loser is expected to earn an AFC Wild Card berth.
In eight games this season, Brissett has completed 64.8 percent of his throws for 1,649 yards and 14 touchdowns compared to just three interceptions. He’s done a superb job replacing the retired Andrew Luck.
As for now, the Colts won’t rush Brissett back into action. But if he’s healthy on Sunday, it appears he’ll get the start against Miami.
