INDIANAPOLIS—The good news from the Colts complex Wednesday was that quarterback Jacoby Brissett took part in practice. "Limited participation" is what the team called it.

What's not clear is whether Brissett will be ready for Sunday's home game with Miami. Coach Frank Reich said Wednesday he was encouraged by the progress Brissett has made.

"I kind of thought he would be able to (participate in practice) based on how he said he felt the other day. I still don't think anything is a slam dunk," said Reich.

Brissett, who has started all eight games for the Colts this season, left Sunday's game at Pittsburgh in the first half with what turned out to be a sprained MCL in his left knee.

Backup QB Brian Hoyer made his first appearance of the season and threw three touchdown passes in the Colts 26-24 loss to the Steelers. Hoyer also had an intercepted pass returned 95-yards for a Pittsburgh touchdown.

Reich says Hoyer is getting extra practice this week to prepare him for Sunday, if Brissett is not available.
