Colts' Trade for Jacoby Brissett Increases Speculation Surrounding Andrew Luck's Injury

05 September 2017

It appears the Indianapolis Colts will be without starting quarterback Andrew Luck as they open the season against the Los Angeles Rams, owner Jim Irsay told the Indy Star. But this one-New England sending QB Jacoby Brissett to Indianapolis for WR Philip Dorsett, which has been confirmed by both teams-has significant ripple effects in the landscape of the 2017 National Football League season. Should he be unable to play, it's likely that backup Scott Tolzien will start in his place. However, since Luck remains on the PUP list, there is a chance that the Colts elect to hold him there, which would force him to miss the first six weeks of the 2017 season, per league rules.

With Luck's activation, whether the Colts will carry 4 quarterbacks to start the season is unclear (as Morris' job may be safe until Brissett fully learns the playbook), however, it's a better situation than it was to start the day with the team's latest trade and Luck's apparent progress. In his two seasons in Indianapolis, Dorsett had 51 receptions for 753 yards and three touchdowns for the Colts.

The Colts also added a few players to their roster, claiming Pierre Desir, Matt Hazel, Matt Jones, Kenny Moore II and Ian Silberman off waivers.

Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, Luck passed his physical at 3:15 PM EST, so while it may have just been a mere formality, the Colts were cutting the deadline close a bit-at least time wise.

While Luck now can begin practicing with his teammates, his status for the September 10 opener against the Los Angeles Rams remains very much in doubt. Morris was consistent throughout the preseason, throwing for 399 yards and completing almost 68 percent of his pass attempts.
