With The Franchise sidelined at least another week, the winless Indianapolis Colts are considering sliding new arrival Jacoby Brissett into the starting quarterback spot for Sunday’s home opener against the Arizona Cardinals.
After the way Scott Tolzien played Sunday in Los Angeles, it’s hard to imagine the Colts not giving Brissett a shot. What does this team have to lose?
If Brissett gets the nod for Sunday, he’ll have all of six practices under his belt with the Colts, the story said. That’s tough for any quarterback, let alone one with two career starts to his name and a playbook he’s still absorbing. But the Colts totaled just 179 passing yards Sunday. They went 0-for-10 on third downs. They turned the ball over three times.
