According to Chris Mortensen on Monday afternoon, an MRI on Brissett’s knee revealed that he has a strained MCL, and there’s a chance the Colts starter could be back on the field against the Dolphins on Sunday.
Jacoby Brissett MRI on left knee was as hoped for – MCL strain. Chance to play this week vs Miami but nothing definite, per sources.

With him on the field, the Colts are going to be in the playoff hunt. Without him, Indianapolis will be in major trouble.
