Brissett went down in the first half and could be seen clutching his knee. He is questionable to return, according to the team.
Instant replay showed Brissett got stepped on by his own offensive lineman, causing his left knee to get stuck in the turf and twisted. After the teams went back to the locker room for halftime, it was Hoyer who started the third quarter for Indianapolis under center.
The Colts offense didn’t miss a beat with Brissett on the sidelines. Later on the drive, backup quarterback Brian Hoyer threw a touchdown pass to Jack Doyle.
However later in the first half, Hoyer gave that touchdown right back. With the Colts driving deep in Pittsburgh territory, Hoyer threw an interception to Minkah Fitzpatrick, that was taken all the way back for a touchdown.

If the injury is serious, the Colts will miss Jacoby’s consistent play under center. Brissett is completing 64.5-percent of his passes this season with 14 touchdowns and just three interceptions.
