Colts name Jacoby Brissett Week 2 starter against Cardinals

Colts name Jacoby Brissett Week 2 starter against Cardinals

Left tackle D.J. Humphries is out an estimated one to two weeks with a sprained knee and coach Bruce Arians said Friday that starting left tackle Mike Iupati won't play because of a triceps injury. He said that winning one-on-one matchups and creating plays would be big for the Colts' offense to get on track.

But Arians made no secret of the fact his trip to Lucas Oil Stadium on Sunday will hold special meaning.

Here, on December 23, 2012, the team that was supposed to be the NFL's worst clinched a playoff spot with a 20-13 victory over Kansas City.

-It's not often teams have to wait until Week Two to convert their first third down of the season. They know that they have nothing to lose.

Brissett, 24, started two games for the Patriots last season during Tom Brady's four-game Deflategate suspension following an injury to backup Jimmy Garoppolo. However, it has problems of its own. Fantasy Tip: Palmer and Fitzgerald could have big days given weakness Colts showed in secondary, and absence of injured star RB David Johnson to provide balance. But Indianapolis also wants to take better advantage of weapons such as wide receiver T.Y. Hilton, tight end Jack Doyle and Moncrief. In his five seasons to date, Luck has nearly 20,000 passing yards to his name, three pro-bowl appearances and was the 2014 passing touchdown leader. Rookie wide receiver Chad Williams will make his National Football League debut with Brown sidelined.

"You have to make some adjustments", offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski said Thursday of Brissett.

Now his duties, at least initially, will be spread around and given to three different running backs - Kerwynn Williams, a former seventh-round draft pick by the Colts, Andre Ellington and veteran Chris Johnson. "From that game, I was able to build off that, someone who can fill in".

"I joke with people it's the "mama plan" I call it", Dawson said. The passing game, however, expects to be affected the most.

The Colts are benching quarterback Scott Tolzien for Sunday's game against the Cardinals in favor of Jacoby Brissett, according to multiple reports.

Arizona does have a stout defense, so this could be a rough day for Brissett. "He's fast and he's going to be a heck of a player". Palmer looked every bit his age and just couldn't get the offense moving against Detroit.

"Sometimes it's just about containing the run or containing the pass, rather than losing technique to get a sack, or me undercutting the ball to get an interception. Just like riding a bike", he said. As you get to know him a little more, he's a smart, smart football player and picks things up well. The next few months will be challenging without Johnson to lean on, but the Cardinals aren't waving a white flag.

- The blocking also has to be better for the running game, which didn't produce much even before Johnson got hurt. "The soccer and lacrosse seasons are ending, and we go into lull before the fall season".
