Brissett didn't love the decision but had faith in coach Frank Reich to do what's best for the team and himself.
"I felt like I was getting better each day," Brissett said Tuesday, via the Indy Star. "It was a coach's decision. He made the decision that he thought was best for myself and for the team. It's his job, I guess, to protect myself from myself."
"You don't always know," offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni said. "You don't know until later in the week and, obviously, Jacoby's our starting quarterback. If there's a chance to play him, we want to play him."
Reich told reporters that Brissett is expected to practice fully Wednesday, and he's slated to start this weekend barring a setback. After last week's disastrous home loss, the Colts (5-4) need their starter back and at his best for a pivotal run if they're going to reclaim a playoff spot.
