Colts reportedly acquire Jacoby Brissett from Patriots
There are apparently some quarterback concerns in Indianapolis.
The Indianapolis Colts have acquired quarterback Jacoby Brissett from the New England Patriots in exchange for wide receiver Phillip Dorsett, according to ESPN’s Field Yates.
The Patriots are trading QB Jacoby Brissett to the Colts for WR Phillip Dorsett, league source tells ESPN.

This trade seems to indicate that the Colts have some concerns about the quarterback position. Andrew Luck appears likely to miss at least a week, and there isn’t a lot of confidence in Scott Tolzien. Brissett does have some starting experience, however short it was, and could be a better short-term option than Tolzien for as long as Luck is out.
