The Indianapolis Colts plan on starting Jacoby Brissett at quarterback for Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Friday. He also figured heavily into their passing game, catching 80 passes for 879 yards and four touchdowns. You can't have it on offense. On the defensive end, a Margus Hunt sack alone with a Darius Butler forced fumble that was recovered by Jeremiah George were the only highlights as the Rams logged 373 yards of total offense, including 310 yards through the air. The Cardinals allowed 26 straight points to fall behind 35-17.
For a week now, Chuck Pagano has been playing it coy, or as coy as Pagano can be, about the identity of his quarterback Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals.
Now his duties, at least initially, will be spread around and given to three different running backs - Kerwynn Williams, a former seventh-round draft pick by the Colts, Andre Ellington and veteran Chris Johnson.
After the way things played out for Indy in their loss to the Rams, though, they've already made a change. Now we know specifically who has been ruled inactive for Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts. Tolzien was 9/18 for 128 yards and two interceptions in the loss.
"I was one day away from coming back and signing with the Dallas Cowboys", Ware said. Arians has worked with many skilled quarterbacks during his National Football League tenure, from Peyton Manning and Ben Roethlisberger to Luck and Palmer.

The hotel has offered to pay for Jenkins' funeral expenses, but it was immediately unknown if the family has accepted the offer. The medical examiner has not ruled on the cause of her death and is expected to rule in the coming weeks.
"I just love football, and I know that's weird for a kicker to say", Dawson said. It's Palmer, he said.
Without Pro Bowl cornerback Vontae Davis in the lineup and any frontline pressure to speak of, the still risky Larry Fitzgerald and the rest of the Cards' offense is poised to have a field day against a struggling and tired Colts defensive unit that allowed Jared Goff to have the best game of his career a week ago. "Just get up and come back firing", he said. I expect the Cardinals to pull out a win in what could be the ugliest game of the season, but it's hardly a sure thing. "It can't be here fast enough".
Brissett also brings athleticism to the Colts quarterback position, which may be able to hide some of the issues they have along their offensive line.
"It's a lot of good players, good playmakers", Brissett said. The Bengals need to find a way to get the most out of players such as A.J. "They have some great personnel that they really like to try to isolate you one-on-ones and utilize those people against you". The three-time Pro Bowler has been removed from the PUP list but is still yet to practice.
Losing him means teams can cheat up more, and the Cardinals will have to have a response for this.
