Colts To Go With Brissett Against The Cardinals In Home Opener
INDIANAPOLIS -- Scott Tolzien was the starter at quarterback in the Colts dismal season opening loss to the Los Angeles Rams.
The Colts lost 46-9 at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. Jacoby Brissett, who was recently, acquired by Indianapolis by way of a trade with the New England Patriots. The Colts sent wide receiver Philip Dorsett to the Pats for Brissett.
With Tolzien having thrown two interceptions, which were returned for touchdowns by the Rams, Brissett saw actions in the Colts final two possessions. During his first series under center, he threw a 50-yard bomb to Donte Moncrief.
Now, the Colts have decided to start Brissett in their Week 2, home opening game against the Arizona Cardinals, as confirmed by the Indianapolis Star. Most of the talk by Colts offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski all week has been getting Brissett more familiar with the playbook.
This all comes as Andrew Luck is still not ready to play as he recovers from off-season shoulder surgery.
In his time with New England, Brissett started one game for the Patriots which came during Tom Brady's four-game suspension and back-up Jimmy Garoppolo was sidelined with an injury.
