Colts HC Frank Reich told reporters after Sunday’s game that QB Jacoby Brissett’s knee injury is “MCL-ish.”
“MCL-ish. I think it looks like a sprain but we’ll see to what degree. We have to see how it responds,” Reich said, per Kevin Bowen.
Brissett said that he wanted to return to the game, but his lack of lateral mobility led to him sitting out.
“My job is lateral,” Brissett said, via ESPN.com. “I didn’t think it was ready to go and I think we did a couple of test and the doctors confirmed it. Obviously I’m in there pushing it, trying to get out there, but it wouldn’t have been smart.”
“Well, I haven’t spoken to either quarterback yet, and I hate talking through the media about my plans, but the plans were — again, the disappointment of the team, not performing well, will be on my mind now for the next 48 hours,” Marrone said, per James Palmer. “I think after those 48 hours are over, I’m going to step away a little bit, take a break because I don’t have to make a decision and have time. That’s what I’m going to talk to the quarterbacks about, and then I’ll tell them probably right before we come back on Sunday, we’ll be able to discuss where we’re going to go. That’s pretty much my plan.”
