Indianapolis Colts head coach Frank Reich had his weekly conference call with the media and gave several updates.

Jacoby Brissett left with an injury in the early stages of the game on Sunday against the Steelers and did not return. Good news, though, the injury is not serious and is only a MCL sprain. The team is optimistic about Brissett for the next game, per Frank Reich. Brissett being lost for a long period of time would be less than ideal, especially after Andrew Luck’s retirement. Brian Hoyer played well in place of Brissett, minus a bad pick-6, but the Colts are much better off with Brissett at the helm than Hoyer.

If Brissett is unable to play then Brian Hoyer would become the starting quarterback and Chad Kelly would be promoted from thr practice squad to act as the team's backup quarterback.

Jacoby Brissett wasn’t the only injured player from the Steelers game. Wide receiver Parris Campbell fractured his hand and had to have surgery on it, per Frank Reich. Campbell had his most productive game on the season with 5 catches for 53 yards and 3 rushes for 27 yards after returning from a injury that kept him out of two games.

Unfortunately, the start to Campbell’s rookie year has been one to forget. He’s been plagued with injuries and ball security issues. The Steelers game seemed to be a breakout game for Campbell, but another injury has stunted his season yet again.
