Reich says Hoyer is getting extra practice this week to prepare him for Sunday, if Brissett is not available.
The "Mr. Not relevant "of the 2017 draft, Kelly signed with the Colts this season off and was suspended two games for violating the league's personal conduct policy". This means Brian Hoyer will be the starting quarterback against the Dolphins. He hits the bench with 14 touchdowns to just three interceptions and 1,649 yards passing.
QB Jacoby Brissett has been downgraded to OUT.
After returning to practice on Wednesday, Brissett participated in a limited role throughout the week after sustaining a sprained MCL early in the second quarter last Sunday in a 26-24 road loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The Colts also announced that cornerback Pierre Desir has been downgraded to doubtful. The Colts on Saturday declared Brissett out for the match and promoted Chad Kelly to their list of active players.
In order to make room for Kelly on the 53-man roster, the Colts waived wide receiver Deon Cain and defensive tackle Kyle Peko.
A win on Sunday would put catapult the Colts to first place in the AFC South.
