Miami Dolphins safety Reshad Jones will miss his fourth game in a row Sunday at Indianapolis because of a chest injury.
The Colts (5-3) trail the Texans (6-3) by half a game in the standings and have three straight AFC South games following Sunday's meeting with the one-win Dolphins. It turns out that he will not be readily available for tomorrow's sport. On Friday's final injury report, the quarterback was listed as questionable after being a limited participant in practice this week.
Since becoming the Colts' starter in light of the shocking Andrew Luck retirement news, Brissett has been phenomenal.
Indianapolis declared that Brissett has been downgraded to out. Hoyer threw three touchdown passes in relief of Brissett last week, but that wasn't enough as the Colts lost to the Steelers. It's pretty apparent that he could handle the starting role if necessary.
The Dolphins are coming off their first gain of the season, but the Colts should be intensely favored in opposition to them - even without Brissett at quarterback.
QB Jacoby Brissett has been downgraded to OUT.
This isn't a surprising development when you consider that Indianapolis elevated Chad Kelly from the practice squad today.
In corresponding moves, wide receiver Deon Cain and defensive tackle Kyle Peko were waived by the Colts and that cornerback Pierre Desir had also been downgraded to doubtful.
Brian Hoyer will get the start for the Colts with Chad Kelly elevated from the practice squad to back him up.
