The Colts continue to get pummeled with injuries. They got some good news on one key injury and some bad news on another one.
Jacoby Brissett got hurt against the Steelers and missed out of the game. It was a knee injury that knocked him out. He had an MRI today to find out the severity of the injury. It looks like it was best case scenario, which is good news for a team that is getting killed with injuries.
Brissett has an MCL sprain and there is a chance he could play this week against Miami. That is good news that it isn’t something that will cost him multiple weeks. Miami is terrible, so the Colts can likely just play Brian Hoyer and still come out with a victory.
The bad injury news is another story. Parris Campbell, who had the best game of his rookie season on Sunday, broke his hand. He had surgery and is now out for several weeks. The Colts are now down their top three wide receivers and are decimated at that position.
This is a big problem for the Colts moving forward. They need to find a way to compensate for the loss of so many pass catchers. The running game will have to pick up the slack. The next three games are Miami, Jacksonville, and at Houston. Those last two are tricky.
Injuries are a part of the game and affect every team, but you can’t help but wonder what this team would look like had injuries not grabbed ahold of them early.
