The MRI on Jacoby Brissett‘s injured left knee revealed nothing unexpected, Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports.

Brissett officially has a sprain of his medial collateral ligament.

He has a chance to play against the Dolphins, but there is “nothing definite” on his status for this week yet, according to Mortensen. That follows a PFT report earlier in the day.

Brissett’s response to treatment this week will determine his availability for Sunday.

The Colts regard him as week to week.

Brissett injured his knee with 12:41 remaining in the second quarter when Steelers defensive lineman Cameron Heyward shoved All-Pro guard Quenton Nelson into Brissett’s leg.

Brissett went 4-of-5 for 59 yards.

The Colts lost after Adam Vinatieri missed a 43-yard field goal with 1:11 remaining.

  1. Concern is that he will not be taking reps this week. I am hoping he will be good enough to back up Hoyer in unlikely event of Hoyer going down.

  2. That’s great news – he’s really seems to be turning into a heck of a QB and would hate to see it derailed by injury. So in that respect, don’t rush him back – give him time to heal up.

  3. They might have mentioned that the laces were turned the wrong way when Vinatieri missed. I’m guessing he is done after this year anyway, but what a career he has had!

  4. It ‘s the Dolphins. Play Brian Hoyer this week and let Jacoby rest his knee. And as much as I hate to say it, Vinatieri looks like he’s finally hit the wall. He’s been great forever, but nobody beats Father Time. It’ll happen to Brady soon, too. Watch and see.

  5. The laces were in but Vinitari’s foot hit the ground causing him to hook it badly. I’d be surprised if they don’t bring in some kickers…

  6. I hope they let AV finish the season.
    If he costs them another game or a playoff game, so be it.
    He’s the goat NFL kicker and deserves the chance to finish on his own terms (this season)

  7. Dolphins are playing a lot better with a rag tag team. Good coaching and few mistakes…some fans need to get current and stop parroting old news.

  8. the colts with hoyer will eviscerate the fish. i have no idea how the jets got beat by em. oh wait……

  9. Nelson was shoved into Brissett BY THE FACEMASK, but of course no flag for hands to the face…

    And yet the Jets beat the Cowboys

    And exactly who would they get that would be better than Vinatieri? Have you not paid attention to the Pats kicker issues since Gostkowski went down for the season? There is a whole bunch of Mike Nugent and worse out there nothing better
