INDIANAPOLIS – When the Indianapolis Colts take on the Miami Dolphins Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium, they will do so without the services of Jacoby Brissett. 

The team announced Saturday afternoon that their starting quarterback had been downgraded from questionable to out due to a sprained MCL (left knee) he suffered early in the second quarter of last week’s 26-24 loss against the Pittsburgh Steelers. 

In his stead, backup Brian Hoyer will start his first game as a member of the Colts, and for the first time since 2017. In a corresponding move, the Colts also promoted quarterback Chad Kelly from the practice squad. He will serve as Hoyer’s backup on Sunday against the 1-7 Dolphins. 

Coach Frank Reich and the Colts had expressed optimism all week that Brissett would be able to take the field Sunday. He was a limited participant during all three days of practice this week and appeared on track to take his place under center.
