Colts QB Brissett to start against Jaguars

November 16 2019 3:57 AM

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Jacoby Brissett will start against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Sunday's NFL clash.

Brissett sat out last week's loss to the Miami Dolphins due to a medial collateral ligament (MCL) sprain in his left knee.

The Colts QB – who has been the team's starter after Andrew Luck's unexpected retirement on the eve of the season – injured his knee in the defeat against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 9.

But Colts head coach Frank Reich confirmed Brissett's return on Friday, after the 26-year-old was a full participant all week.

"Jacoby was full-go the whole week," Reich told reporters. "He looked good, so he'll be our starter."

"He's looked really good. I really don't want to put a percentage on it," Reich replied when asked how close Brissett is to being 100 per cent. "I know he's good enough to play."

Reich added: "I watch his every move every day for the last two years. So I know what he looks like when he's feeling good. Just needed to see him look like that."

Jacoby – selected in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft – has completed 153 of 236 passes for 1,649 yards and 14 touchdowns in eight games for the Colts (5-4) this season.
