It looks more and more like Jacoby Brissett will start the season opener for the Colts.
Andrew Luck stays out, is not expected to play in the precision, still has his left ankle wound. . . and the regular season is fast approaching.
Colts coach Frank Reich said Wednesday he wants to call a success status for week one at the end of the third game of the season. It's ten days from now if you stay home.
"I think about it, ideally, the more time you have, the better," Reich said via Mike Wells of ESPN. “But at the end of the third preseason game, you have to know something. You have to be able to call and move from there, whether we have full speed with Andrew after the third game of the season or if we come with Jacoby at that time. We will make that decision when the time is right. "
Happiness has been managing a calf strain since the offseason program. He also has a high ankle injury, General Manager Chris Ballard revealed Tuesday.
Brissett played for Luck 2017 when Luck missed the year with a shoulder injury. The Colts went 4-11 with Brissett as the start.
Brissett has a lot to gain when he becomes a free agent in 2020.
