INDIANAPOLIS—Colts fans who were hoping to know by now whether quarterback Jacoby Brissett will play in Sunday's home game against the Dolphins will just have to wait.
Friday, Head Coach Frank Reich said Brissett continues to make progress, following a knee sprain suffered at Pittsburgh last week. He's seen "limited participation" in practice this week. As far as this Sunday goes, "we'll take it right up to the game. I mean he's made progress during the week and in some ways I'm encouraged. I think he's looked okay during the week of practice and feel confident in some things that he's done."
Still, Reich is is taking no chances on his starting quarterback. "We need to take every day and every minute for him to get back and see if we can get comfortable. At the end of the day, we've got to make the right decision, we've got to make the right decision for him and for the team. But I'm encouraged at some of the progress that he's made. Will he be 100-percent? I don't think there's any way he's 100-percent by Sunday," said Reich.
If Brissett doesn't play, the Colts will count on Brian Hoyer to lift the team over the 1-7 Dolphins. Last week, after Brissett left the game against the Steelers, Hoyer passed for three touchdowns. The Colts lost and fell to 5-3 on the season.
Reich said Friday that T.Y. Hilton will not play Sunday. Neither will fellow receiver Parris Campbell.
