Steelers' Joe Haden breaks fibula against Colts, is out indefinitely

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin

In a unusual chain of events, Jacoby Brissett finds himself in the NFL's concussion protocol Sunday evening even though he passed an initial in-game evaluation and finished the game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The two-time Super Bowl champion hooked up with JuJu Smith-Schuster on a 7-yard TD pass to cut the lead to 17-9.

After the game, coach Mike Tomlin said Haden sustained the injury high up on his fibula.

To date, Brissett has thrown for 2,172 yards, nine touchdowns and five interceptions. And after Ryan Shazier picked off Brissett's pass at the Colts' 10-yard line, Roethlisberger scrambled long enough to find a wide open Vance McDonald for another 7-yard score early in the fourth.

It also moves the team one game closer to what certainly must be the end of Jackson's tenure as head coach with the Browns. Kizer missed two second-half possessions after suffering a rib injury on a third-quarter hit from cornerback Quandre Diggs.

The Colts (3-7) took a 10-3 halftime lead, getting a 60-yard touchdown pass down the left sideline from Brissett to Donte Moncrief with 14:52 remaining in the second quarter and a 48-yard field goal from Adam Vinatieri with 5:51 left in the half for a 10-0 lead.

Ben Roethlisberger's 32-yard completion to Antonio Brown with 35 seconds set up a 33-yard field goal from Chris Boswell as time expired Sunday, giving Pittsburgh a 20-17 come-from-behind win at Lucas Oil Stadium.

He had an extra point blocked that was almost returned for two points by Colts safety Matthias Farley. The situation is made worse by the fact the Steelers now have a stretch of four primetime games in a row, the first coming against the Tennessee Titans in a short week.
