The Colts remain confident their quarterback will play Sunday, but Jacoby Brissett remains in concussion protocol, per Mike Chappell of Indianapolis’ CBS4.

Coach Chuck Pagano said Brissett would practice Wednesday and, barring a setback, would take another step with a “contact” day Thursday.

On Friday, Brissett will see an independent neurologist, who will have to clear the quarterback before he can return to game action.

Brissett developed concussion-like symptoms after the Colts’ pre-bye loss to the Steelers on Nov. 12.

Pagano said Monday that Brissett “should be OK” to play Sunday against the Titans.

  1. “Pagano said Monday that Brissett “should be OK” to play Sunday against the Titans.” That’s almost a rich as them saying that Andrew Luck will be playing this year.

  2. “Coach Chuck Pagano said Brissett would practice Wednesday and, barring a setback, would take another step with a “contact” day Thursday.”

    Players aren’t supposed to practice if they’re in the protocol, and certainly not in contact drills.

    I thought that too but just checked and in fact they are allowed once the team docs deem symptoms are clear, to then enter into the final stage (stage 5) of practice as normal (including contact). If the player does ok with that the team then asks the independent specialist to check the player again to see if they can be given final clearance to play a game.
