Jacoby Brissett suffers knee injury against Steelers


Now, both are in question.

Former Georgia Bulldog Justin Houston recorded a safety for the Indianapolis Colts today against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Backup quarterback Brian Hoyer did an admirable job filling in for Jacoby Brissett, who suffered a knee injury in the second quarter. Since he joined the Steelers, Fitzpatrick has four interceptions in six games. He jogged off the field under his own power, but after an evaluation on the sideline, the team elected to go with Hoyer for the rest of the game. He tested the knee out but never returned, though he stressed he felt "fine" afterward.

"As a collective group, we didn't think (going back in) was the right decision, " Brissett said.

In his first 18 National Football League games with the Dolphins, Fitzpatrick had two interceptions, including one that he returned 50 yards for a touchdown against the Minnesota Vikings on December 16. Hoyer, however, showed the drop-off isn't drastic if he's forced to play. The Indianapolis Colts may stand at 5-3, but Sunday's loss against the Pittsburgh Steelers (4-4) could become a sign for whatever is to come in this season's second half. The former New England Patriots backup has completed almost 65 percent of his passes and has 14 touchdowns compared to just three interceptions.

In a case that could be filled with a bunch of "oh, not again" and other emotional reactions, the Colts went through another change at quarterback on Sunday.
