What's not clear is whether Brissett will be ready for Sunday's home game with Miami. The Colts will most likely look to establish the line of scrimmage and lean on their run game with a back-up quarterback in the game - if the Colts are able to reset the line of scrimmage and create push up front against Miami's interior, it will make for a long day for LBs Raekwon McMillan and Jerome Baker. It turns out that he will not be readily available for tomorrow's sport.
" Campbell suffered a fracture in his hand in the fourth quarter of last Sunday's Week 9 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, and is expected to miss an undetermined amount of time".
The Colts are playing it safe with Brissett. While Brissett has been a limited participant in practice this week, the team has also been giving quarterback Brian Hoyer - who had three touchdown passes in relief work last week - extra practice reps just in case.
Brissett, the full-time starter in the wake of Andrew Luck's preseason retirement, has thrown for 1,649 yards with 14 touchdowns and three interceptions, good for a 99.7 passer rating. If he is unable to play again or is limited this Sunday against the Dolphins, then Rock Ya-Sin, Marvell Tell III, Shakial Taylor or Quincy Wilson could get added snaps at cornerback opposite starter Kenny Moore II.More news: Australians warned worst bushfires may be yet to come
