Colts QB Jacoby Brissett in concussion protocol

USA Today - [Full Article]

After being cleared through the NFL's concussion protocol late in the third quarter of a 20-17 loss to Pittsburgh, Jacoby Brissett didn't take postgame questions because he was still being evaluated for a head injury by team doctors.

"Scott Tolzien started warming up as soon as Jacoby came out, because we could have lost him for the entire game," coach Chuck Pagano said, explaining one of Sunday's odder scenes. "So he went through the protocol and passed it and got back out there in time to run that series."

Fantasy Impact:

Team officials said Brissett was initially evaluated for a concussion on the sideline twice — once with team doctors and once by the unaffiliated neurological consultant. He passed both times. Then, after the game, he developed concussion-like symptoms again and returned to the protocol.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (groin, questionable) took limited practice reps again Friday and is questionable for Week 10. Hilton did practice on Friday but drew the questionable tag, so we’ll have to monitor his status on Sunday morning.

Steelers WR Martavis Bryant works with first team

Tribune-Review - [Full Article]

Martavis Bryant was back working with the first-team offense Monday when the Steelers resumed practice after a four-day break on their bye.

The issue is whether the embattled wide receiver will be in that same spot Sunday when the Steelers open the second half of their season at the Indianapolis Colts.

After being benched against the Detroit Lions on Oct. 29 because of his controversial social media posts, Bryant is looking for a chance to rejoin his teammates on the field. He has been given no indication the benching will extend past that one game.

“I'm pretty sure I'm going to be out there,” Bryant said. “It's a long week. It's only Monday. I'll come back in here Wednesday, get the game plan and go from there.”

Related players: JuJu Smith-Schuster

Fantasy Impact:

It appears Bryant is looking to make a fresh start, but that remains to be seen. He'll remain risky for fantasy lineups until he shows more. Smith-Schuster still appears to be a safer play.
