Jacoby Brissett #7 of the Indianapolis Colts signals to the Colts bench in the first quarter during the game against the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium on October 6, 2019 in Kansas City, Missouri.

All through this week there had been queries about Jacoby Brissett's availability for this Sunday's matchup towards the Miami Dolphins.

INDIANAPOLIS-The good news from the Colts complex Wednesday was that quarterback Jacoby Brissett took part in practice. Rather than risk injury against a team with one win, they are holding out hope that he will be available for a stretch of three divisional games.

Brissett practiced in a limited fashion all week as he battles a sprained MCL suffered in Week 9's loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Kelly completed 54 of 73 passes for 583 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions in four preseason games with the Colts this summer, then was signed to the practice squad on September 19.

The Colts are playing it safe with Brissett.

Indianapolis declared that Brissett has been downgraded to out. The veteran has completed 64.8% of his passes for 1,649 yards with 14 touchdowns and just three interceptions. This indicates Brian Hoyer will be the starting off quarterback towards the Dolphins.

The Colts also downgraded cornerback Pierre Desir to doubtful. Indianapolis elevated Chad Kelly from the practice squad to the 53-man roster to serve as Hoyer's backup.

Indy (5-3) released receiver Deon Cain and defensive tackle Kyle Peko.

It'll be interesting to see how Hoyer performs in his first start since 2017.
